Wide open space changes seasonally
Karen in Minneapolis
This is a large park with plenty of open space for larger dogs to roam. A recently added area for small and frail dogs is still in the post-construction stage but should be nice when finished. Pond cleanliness and size varies with the seasons - large and clean(ish) in the spring, smaller and dirtier as the summer goes on, but my dog seems to love it all the time. Variety of wider trails and narrower ones along the edge of the park. Mostly knowledgable/friendly/responsible dog owners. We've never had a bad experience. There are restrooms. Helpful to bring towels and water.
Great park, depends on when you go
Matt in Maple Grove
Overall I think this is a great park and they are making improvements, like a nicer entry area and an area for small/frail dogs. The pond is great in the summer but the water level varies depending on the time of year. If it's wet out, make sure you bring towels because your dog will get muddy wherever you go.
Elm Creek Reserve Dog Park - FANTASTIC!

I have a yearly pass to this park, and it is AMAZING! Both my dogs and I love going here. They can run and run, and I can get a good walk in without holding them back. The trails are well kept, the people friendly, and the scenery breathtaking. For those with labs or other 'water' dogs, there is a big pond for swimming and fetching. A wonderful place to take your dog(s)!
Lots of fun, safe space for my dog
Robin in Champlin
I have only been to one other park on the list and the Elm Creek park far exceeded it. There is a lot of space, the people that frequent this park are nice and respectful, and there is a lot of interesting space to walk.
Nice size, otherwise average

I made a special trip since this is rated as the best dog park in the state. I was comparing it to Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis and was dissappointed. The pond was small more like a dirty puddle that frogs breed it. They only had a few trails, the circle trail was nice but it ended quickly and a lot of owners do not clean up after their dogs :(
