While it may be time to say goodbye to another summer, there’s still plenty of time left to explore outside with your furry friends. Here in Dallas, we’re privileged to have sunny and cool temperatures through most of the fall and early winter season. So what better way to spend the day outside than at a dog park? From your traditional dog parks, to a more scenic or social option, we compiled a list of five “paw-fect” dog parks to visit in Dallas!
White Rock Lake Dog Park is the ideal Dallas destination for four-legged friends and families. The park is separated into three play areas, with a double-gated fence around the entire park for extra safety. One play area is for big dogs, one is for little dogs and, to cool off, one play area features waterfront lake access and a fenced-in swimming zone. The park is closed each Monday for maintenance.
With more than 22 acres for off-leash play in North Dallas, NorthBark Park has plenty of room to let your pup run free. There are trails for exploring and an expansive lawn area. Water attractions include a “doggy beach,” a “doggy lake” and a “doggy pond.” Sounds fun for a hot fall day, right? Best of all, there are doggy showers to clean up after your adventures. NorthBark Park is closed on Tuesdays and on rainy days.
Not your usual dog park, Mutts Canine Cantina is truly a treat for dogs and their owners. Located in Uptown Dallas, Mutts has a dog park, a bar and a restaurant. The dog park is separated into two areas for small and large dogs. While your dog is busy running around with other furry friends, you can enjoy a nice cold beer, a milkshake or a burger on the patio. Mutts even offers dog “pawty” services, a party hosted for your pooch’s birthday or special occasion.
Located in Klyde Warren Park in Downtown Dallas, My Best Friend’s Park is a great space for furry friends who want to explore the city. Dogs can be off-leash, to play with others or jump through the many water fountains. You’re also able to hang with your dog in the open spaces of Klyde Warren Park, sit at a park bench and grab something from the food trucks, but pups must remain on a leash when not in My Best Friend’s Park area.
Wagging Tail Dog Park is a 6.9 acre off-leash park with an amazing observation deck that offers views of White Rock Creek and a waterfall. Fencing throughout the park marks play areas in and out of the sun, and for both big and small dogs. Also, there is a walking trail throughout the property. It’s closed on rainy days and on Mondays for maintenance.
