Soaring temperatures can be an issue when walking at the height of the day. Las Vegas has a subtropical hot desert climate and summers are long, hot, and dry. If you're walking with your dog during this season, be sure to wear sunscreen, plan breaks, and take water. Doggie paws can become burned on hot pavement, so boots are a good idea in this scorching hot area. Spring and fall are more pleasant for daytime walking and winters tend to be fairly mild, although some chilly periods occur especially at night when this desert city cools off.
Angel Park is located on the north border of Angel Park Ranch and adjacent to the Angel Park Country Club and a golf course. The park features lots of open space with lawns and trees. A rare opportunity in this desert town to stretch out in the grass under a shade tree with your dog is provided here. The park also has tennis courts, a play area, and a walking trail around its perimeter. The Angel Park Trail runs through this park and is over 2 miles long.
From Bruce Trent Park, you can head north to the Pueblo Park Trail. This is a landscaped trail with grassy areas and drought tolerant landscaping. There are a few underpasses along the trail that create shady spots on hot summer days. You must keep your dog on a leash on the trails and be prepared to clean up any messes your dog leaves behind to be respectful to other trail users.
