Bedford, Texas is situated right in between Fort Worth and Dallas. This prime location has played an important role in Bedford's growth since the city was first settled in the late 19th century. Throughout the early 1900s, Bedford became known for its dairy industry, thanks to its close proximity to the stockyard in Fort Worth. You can find almost any animal at the stockyard, including horses and cows. Even today, animals are such an important part of the community that you can find ten vets within the city limits.
Thanks to its thriving arts district, modern-day Bedford has earned a spot on Money Magazine's top 25 places to live in the US in 2017. While you're here, you and your dog will definitely want to visit Bedford Trails Linear Park. This is a huge park setting complete with food trucks, swimming pools, and hotels. You'll find several walking paths throughout the grounds. If you have your dog on a leash, then he can join you here for a fun-filled day. The only places that don't allow doggie visitors are the pools and splash pads.
If you would like somewhere more quiet and relaxed to walk, try Brook Hallow Park. This is a series of walking trails that meander through natural areas. You and Fido can enjoy some quiet time exploring the brook and trails, as long as your pal stays on a leash.
