Milwaukee’s Top 5 Dog Parks

Check Out Milwaukee’s Top 5 Dog Parks! There’s No Shortage of Fun for Your Four-Legged Friend in Historic Downtown Milwaukee!

Marshall Park

Marshall Park is surrounded by Cass, Lyon, and Marshall Streets. It is quickly growing as the happening place for dogs and their owners to visit.
It’s a great pit stop halfway between Water Street and Lincoln Memorial Drive (ensure you have bags). Please respect the spot and keep your dog leashed, as the fence is not enclosed.

Bay View Dog Park

Bay View Dog Park spans one acre between Bay Street and Lincoln Avenue Access Road. It’s a great spot to visit after strolling Kinnickinnic Avenue, only a few blocks away.
The fenced-in “pocket park” allows your dog to play off-leash. However, there are no separate large and small dog areas, so watch your pup and ensure they mind their manners.

Rover West Dog Park

Rover West Dog Park occupies the entire block and has a gated fence to prevent dogs from wandering into the streets.
Your dog is free to roam and smell the roses without the risk of running away. Free parking on bordering streets makes Rover West accessible to all dogs driving over.

Estabrook Dog Park

Estabrook Dog Park is three-acres and fully fenced in. The well-kept park has ample space with small and large dog areas.
The frequented park is exceptional for extroverted dogs and owners. Wood chips keep your pup’s paws clean during wet weather, and free poop bags enable everyone to be an accountable pet owner.
Be mindful of the Estabrook Biergarten next door; the park is packed with people on the weekends.
