Bunker Hills Regional Park​ - Dog Park

Anoka County has partnered with the cities of Coon Rapids and Andover on the construction
of a Dog Park at Bunker Hills Regional Park. Located off 133rd Avenue near the existing
compost site, the 6.5 acre dog park has a separated small dog area, an open play area and
a short trail for those that want to walk with their dog.

For a list of all city parks and info about each park, visit the Anoka County website and select parks, then choose Andover for the city search.

Skate Board Park
Andover has a new Skate Board Park located on the west side of Sunshine Park off Crosstown Boulevard. The facility includes a concrete pad and several pieces of equipment for skate boarders such as ramps, rails, etc. 

Did you know the City of Andover has an Adopt-A-Park program?  The program allows community groups or an individual to adopt a park of their choice to keep litter-free for a 2 year commitment.  The park clean-up takes place 2 times per year, once in the spring and again in the fall.  If you agree to a 2 year commitment, a sign will be placed in the park recognizing your group's contributions to the city's park system.  If you are interested in adopting a park or would like more information, feel free to contact Danielle Lenzmeier, Public Works Administrative Assistant at 763-767-5175 or
