Dog park users please note - The turf maintenance that was originally scheduled to take place at Thompson Dog Park last week began this morning. Unfortunately due to soil conditions at the site and the wear and tear on this heavily used park, the park is going to be temporarily closed until the ground freezes which will help prevent further damage. Once the ground freezes, the park will be opened for use again. Notice of the reopening will be published through the City's usual notice channels (Hot Sheet, Facebook, website, etc.)
Worried about not being able to exercise your dog? Don't forget the original dog park located on Highway 99 east. The site is still being maintained as a dog park and is available for use.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused by closing the Thompson Dog Park and hope to reopen it soon. For more information on City parks, please visit our website at www.saintpetermn.gov or contact the Public Works Department at 507-934-0670.
