Weather in Abilene can be a bit harsh during the summer, requiring some consideration as to what time of day you go walking out on the sidewalks and pavement. Luckily, it more than makes up for it with moderate and mild winters that lack any real heavy snow storms or ice to slow you down. A light jacket can often be more than enough to keep you warm throughout a stroll in mid-winter.
On the other hand, you'll likely benefit from Cobb Park's flat terrain which can make it relatively easy to traverse for those with joint issues, elderly pups, or those who simply aren't fans of intense exercise. You may have to get creative or venture into one of the nearby parks or greenways if you're looking for hiking terrain, but otherwise, this space will likely have something to offer you and your furry friend.
Some of the best sports parks include the Abilene International Soccer Complex and Red Bud Softball Complex. These are great places to watch a game or get in on the action! Finally, the lake parks, such as Kirby Lake Park, are a great place to go swimming with your furry friend or even enjoy a day of fishing.
