The Arlington Park is a surprisingly large park with a several trails and an open space for dogs to play. It is often busy with other dogs who are largely friendly (I've had two experiences with aggressive dogs at this park). The park is completely fenced in and serves as a fantastic option for dogs who love to play!
- AllisonJun. 19, 2018Spacious, natural park just fully fenced!
What a wonderful surprise. This is a 4.5 acre park in which I would trail run in because it's so large and beautiful. If feels like a typical park I've only seen for humans, this one just happens to be fully fenced and says off leash is permitted! It has established wide walking trails and smaller spur trails through large, established trees. There are maintained and unmaintained areas adding a nice mix of things for you and your dogs to explore. Benches and dog water bowls throughout. Bring some water for them and you'll have a wonderfully play date at this park.

This used to be my favorite park until tonight. I left the park and was driving south on Arkwright when a large rock hit the roof of my car. I slammed on my brakes, got out of my car and was nearly hit by a 2nd large rock launched from the ridge along the southwest part of the park just inside the fence. I immediately called 911, ran inside the park and confronted the three thugs, who of course denied it and fled. They blamed it on other kids that were nowhere to be seen. I just came from the park and these were the only kids there. The cops came and said they get a lot of calls like this at this park. I won't return, except to post pictures of the thugs there to warn others.
- Sandra TocyloskiMore than a year agoLove This Park
It had so much space. Its completely fenced in. My English Mastiff and Bullmastiff had a ball. They got to sniff and play with all kinds of dogs big and small. There is a few benches to sit and relax on. The dirt on the trails was almost like sand so it's not all muddy when wet. Don't forget to bring water for your dogs. Great Dog Park!
- CaseyMore than a year agoA great park!
My dog and I are regulars here, and like it a lot. The terrain is varied (it's not just a big field), the people are friendly, and it's a good size.
I recommend it to anyone in the area that wants to do a little walking, without committing to something huge like Battle Creek.
I have heard stories of people breaking into vehicles nearby, so take the extra time to secure your valuables (as you should in any park). I've never seen or had any trouble myself, though.
This is a great place to go on weekdays after work, if you actually want to do a little walking. If you ask around a bit, the locals will tell you about the history of the place, with is actually pretty interesting.
Please bring some water to pour in the bowls. There isn't any available on-site, so it's entirely up to us.
As many other people have said, it IS fully fenced in, and there are two entrances.
- MarkMore than a year agoFully fenced
Somehow the site and some reviewers have this confused with Woodlake on Larpenteur in Roseville; Arlington is a great mix of trails through the woods and some open areas. People were really friendly. Good variety of terrain and expanse for my greyhound - hardly felt like we were in the city. 'have NOT met aggressive dogs here.
- JannaMore than a year agoPart of description is for different park
The last part of this park's description is NOT for this location - it isn't located on those streets. This park, Arlington Arkwright, is fully fenced in. For the record also, there are two sections of the park off Larpenteur and one section is fully fenced, the other is not.
- AbbyMore than a year agoFully Fenced and Fully Vaccinated
I have been going to this park for about 2 years and can attest to it being completely fenced in. The Dog Park in Roseville (off of Larpenteur Ave) is NOT. Being a daily dog park goer and meeting many of the other pet owners, every dog I've encountered has been vaccinated and mannerly. I also foster dogs and this park has been perfect, enough room to run around without losing your dog. Not as busy as some of the other parks in the metro.
- RickMore than a year agoNever again
I live just a few blocks away and will never go there again. Dogs are very aggressive and owners seem to be there more for their own workout so they don't have to be bothered by watching their own pet. In my own opinion I bet these other animals are not current on vaccinations as well. STAY AWAY!!!
- NicoleMore than a year agoIt IS Completely Fenced In
I've been taking my dogs here for years and I can attest that it IS fully fenced. We love this park as it not overwhelmingly large like Battle Creek but has all of it's charm. There is also no water for my dog to get muddy in, which is a plus!
- PaulaMore than a year agoDecent Park
This park IS completely fenced in. I think one reviewer is thinking of Woodview. This park is nice. In a shady neighborhood though. And there's a few times where some neighborhood kids were playing in the park unsupervised, which I don't think is a good idea.
- JessiMore than a year agoArlington Arkwright Dog Park
Took my pugs to this park for the first time. It is a nice city park. This was the first park I felt like I was actually hiking. It's about half the length and half the width of Battle Creek, so much smaller but friendly. If you can't walk steep inclines, they have some stairs to use. There are a couple of smaller fields and trash cans at the exits. It is completely fenced and there are bowls to add water to. The only downside is that to get enough exercise (if your dog doesn't run around in the field), you will need to loop the park several times as all the trails are pretty short within the middle of the park.
