Prairie Island Dog Park

Location – Across from Prairie Island Spillway


The January 5, 2018 dog walk fundraiser has been canceled due to unsafe temperatures. Mark you calendar for the next event on Friday, February 2, 2018

Join us for a fun-filled evening supporting two great causes – bringing awareness to local pet-friendly businesses and organizations as well as funding future upgrades to the City of Winona’s Prairie Island Dog Park. We will be walking our furry friends on-leash together under the moonlight along the beautiful 2+ mile Prairie Island Trail loop. Local business leaders will welcome the group and lead out the walk.

Bring a flashlight-the trail will be marked with reflectors. The walk will be canceled if the temperature including wind chill is 15 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Check the City of Winona Parks and Recreation Facebook Page or call the Park Rec Office for cancellations.

This is a family-friendly event, well-behaved, well-socialized dogs are welcome. All dogs must wear a collar with ID tag and be on a leash (2′-4′ recommended; NO retractable leashes).
