Dog Exercise Areas

The Waukesha County Park System has two off-leash Dog Exercise Areas (DEA) currently open -- Minooka Park in Waukesha and Nashotah Park in Nashotah.

NEW Mukwonago Park Dog Exercise Area is open for limited use. The official Ribbon Cutting is 9 am on Tuesday, September 9, 2014! 

The area is located at W325 S9925 Beulah Rd. in Mukwonago. Daily park entrance fees apply. 

Nashotah Park's Dog Exercise Area will close 10 am - 2 pm on Wednesday August 6, 2014 for maintenance. Thanks! 


General Guidelines:

  • There is no extra fee to enjoy the Dog Exercise Area. The Dog Exercise Area is open the same hours as the park – sunrise to 10 p.m. year round. It is a State Statute that dogs running at large and untagged are subject to impoundment and/or penalties (174.042). A dog license is required for the keeping of any dog older than five months of age (174.07).
    Contact your local municipal clerk’s office for Dog License.

  • Dogs are allowed within any of the Waukesha County Parks (sorry, no dogs allowed at Retzer Nature Center); dogs must be licensed and leashed, and owners clean up and properly dispose of pet waste.
