The City of Savage has demonstrated its commitment to the preservation of open space for the recreational purposes of its citizens. The community currently contains approximately 304 acres of city-managed park lands, as well as over 2,400 acres of state and county-managed park space. Below is a list of the parks within the City of Savage, as well as a description of the activities that can be found at each.

Dog Park

Hwy 13 and Xenwood Avenue

Located near the Highway 13 West Frontage Road and Xenwood Avenue, the dog park consists of more than two acres of fenced in area with a small and large dog section.

The park is located within walking distance from the Hamilton District and downtown residential areas. There is no charge to use the park; however, residents are required to have their pet licensed by the City – a mandate for all Savage pet owners. The park will be open from sunrise to sunset every day and residents are expected to follow and carry with them a copy of park rules. A pet waste station is located on site. Pet owners should bring their own water.


Adopt A Park
