Just because you call a loft or apartment home doesn’t mean you’ve stopped obsessing over your dog and his need to workout. From fountain-filled parks to lakeside dog retreats, Dallas has the best playgrounds for pooches of every size. Here are our picks for Dallas’ best dog parks.
Bark Park Central (The Deep Ellum Dog Park)
The place to see and be sniffed in Deep Ellum is Bark Park Central. Located under an overpass within view of downtown, the park is a favorite of urban dwellers and offers a break from the concrete jungle.
North Bark Park is the Cadillac of canine recreation. In addition to 5 acres of grassy, fenced-in play areas, there is a walking trail and pond. If your pup gets dirty, and that’s pretty much guaranteed, take advantage of the stand-up wash stations.
Wagging Tail is a 5-acre park low on frills and high on nature. There’s plenty for the pups to do, though, with fenced-in areas for large and small dogs as well as a trail that runs along the park’s perimeter.
For your furry friend that loves to go swimming, White Rock is for you. In addition to typical dog park amenities, this park has lake access.
A 5-acre area located within Gateway Park in Fort Worth, Fort Woof is a pup’s paradise. It has garnered national attention: it was named the best dog park in the nation by Dog Fancy magazine in 2006, and it was listed among the top 5 by Pedigreein 2008.
