A long-awaited off-leash dog park is now open along Kings Highway between 38th and 40th streets.

The dog park includes a shaded area with benches at Lyndale Farmstead Park.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board built the park with a budget of $215,000, more than the combined cost of all five of its other dog parks.

Dogs must be registered with the city to use the park.
