Dog Walking in Houma

Houma is a melting pot of cultures, with roots in Cajun, Native American, and African traditions. As the town of Houma grows, so does its' pet population. More and more dog-friendly paths and parks are becoming accessible in the area.

Although Houma does not yet have its' own dog park, nearby Thibodaux is home to the Norman Swanner Dog Park. There's tons of space (and we mean a TON!) for your pooch to run free off-leash - in fact, the park covers 32,000 square feet! A small dog area, large dog area, covered pavilion, and park benches make this park a fantastic visit for both two-legged owners and four-legged friend.

The Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge Nature Trail is about a 45-minute loop that offers possible glimpses of rare birds and the notable American alligator. Similarly, the Bayou Teche National Wildlife Refuge Boardwalk offers a short walk around the protected area.
