The metropolitan city of Texarkana in Arkansas sits on the border to Texas, and mirrors the Texas Texarkana across the border. The Arkansas city is the twelfth-largest town in Arkansas, although its sister city has more than 4 times the population. Despite its smaller size, the city still has lots of room and love for its four-legged residents, providing them with dog-friendly parks and 2 animal hospitals.
The best place to bring Fido in Texarkana is Jefferson Park. The area has a large open space, a paved walkway, 2 playgrounds, 11 picnic tables, a pavilion, and grills. The area is great for going for a nice stroll during the day, but it also hosts the Petsafe JefFURson Dog Park. The dog park is the most popular in town, thanks to its large size and three different fenced-in areas for large dogs, small dogs, and agility equipment. There's lots of room to run around, and large trees that offer shade in the sitting areas. Covered picnic tables and benches are available, along with clean-up stations, water fountains, trash bins, and water fountains.
The Ed Worrell Memorial Park is the second largest park in the city, and is dog-friendly to residents and visitors. The area has fenced-in baseball fields, a 1-mile paved walkway, lots of trees, open space to run around, and restrooms. Dogs must be on a leash inside the park, but have access to clean-up stations, water fountains, benches, and nighttime lights.
Texarkana continues yearly to improve their public parks and walking trails, creating more and more space for Fido to get out and exercise!
