What people say about dog parks around Crystal, Minnesota

Great space, there is one side of the fence that is shorter, maybe 3 feet, but if your dog doesn’t jump, it’s totally fine! There are a couple corners where the fence doesn’t meet so there are small gaps. If you had a very small dog who was an escape artist, i’d be on the lookout, but nothing to worry about for medium to larger dogs. Fully fenced in, clean, we didn’t see any other dogs or animals, although we did hear a dog barking a couple houses away. Erica was a great host and was very quick to communicate! We will definitely be returning.

Nice clean space, the fence is just to low for my dog but he had a great time running around.

This was our first sniffspot and it was perfect for our energetic little dog to run around and play! It was well-kept with plenty of space. Just watch out for the exposed roots near the tree if you have a small dog.

Very clean and well-kept yard. It was quiet for us, despite being on a busy road. My dog is young and fairly reactive and had zero issues. We will be back! Great little spot, easy entrance/exit. Bring your own toys.

It was a very easy spot to get to with a nice large and clean yard. My dogs really enjoyed chasing each other around and are very tired now. However, If your dog is athletic be warned that the fence is on the shorter side and there are not completely fenced in areas surrounding the yard. Definitely a place we will be returning to if we can!

This was my first time using Sniffspot and my dogs were sooooo happy! Their toy went over the chain link into the neighboring yard a couple times but the fence was high enough for my medium dogs and low enough for me to get it with a stick 😂.

Nice spot. Busy street right on Winnetka, but otherwise easy to find and park. Plenty of stuff to sniff, and low-ish chainlink fence throughout, so it feels a little public. But we had no problems. We'll be back.

This was a great spot for my dog to get some zoomies out! A nice open yard where he was able to do plenty of laps.

This was my first sniffspot experience and it was perfect. It was a large backyard with comfortable seating, shady and sunny areas, hose if your dog likes to play in water, and ample room for zoomies. My foster puppy, who’s never been off leash before, loved running and rolling around. Our resident dog, who is reactive, enjoyed the time playing ball without distractions. I definitely recommend Erica’s place!

Gus had a fantastic time and didnt want to leave! This spot was clean, safe, and had enough space to run around. Nina was very accommodating and kind. Thank you! We'll be back!

What a great host! She had awesome communication, helped me find a time that worked well for both of us. Even had some treats, a water bowl, bottled water, toys and waste bags out when. The yard was big and open, and made for great frisbee time. The fence was fully enclosed and no other yards were visible. There was some nearby dog noise, but that is out of anyone's control. We will absolutely be back again.

This was our first time using a Sniff Spot and my dog enjoyed herself a lot! We picked a really cold day so we didn't end up staying very long but we will be back! The yard is big enough for my husky to get in some good laps and stretch out to run and the fence is very tall and secure. The host's dogs did bark at first but just as stated in the description they soon quieted and weren't a problem. It also sounded like they were secured in the house somewhere away from the back door. We went at noon on a Wednesday and we did not hear or see any neighbor dogs.

Perfect spot for a little running around and sniffing! There was only one spot by the back fence behind the bushes where a dog interested in jumping fences might be able to more easily (there is a photo of it). It was a great space though! Thank you so much for welcoming us over Aaron!

FAQ about our Crystal dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
