In North Texas lies the medium-sized city of Burleson, Texas, part of the Fort Worth metropolitan area. What started out as a small, unknown railroad stop has grown to a population size of over 40.000 people. The amount of animals in Burleson has boomed as well, hence an increase in animal hospitals, clinics, and other amenities.
Since 2012, the citizens of Burleson can say that they have their own off-leash dog park, the Pet Paradise Dog Park. As membership is required for entrance to the dog park and all dogs have to be up to date on their vaccinations, the dog park offers a safe and happy environment for dogs both large and small to play and explore.
Visitors to Burleson should definitely not pass over the Lost Oak Winery. This local family-owned vineyard offers wine tasting, guided tours, live outdoor music and more in a rustic setting. The best part, however, are the trails where dogs are allowed too.
Staying in Burleson, Texas, short-term with dogs is hassle-free as well. There is a large amount of pet-friendly hotels to choose from: Best Western Plus Inn & Suites, Rustic Creek Ranch Resort, Days Inn, Comfort Suites, La Quinta Inn & Suites, Americas Best Value Inn, Super 8 and Magnuson Hotel.
Noted as one of the best parks in Burleson, Warren Park is located in the Cross Timber neighborhood. This park features a large grassy area that is perfect for playing frisbee with Fido. The area is also lighted, making it an excellent choice for late night walks with your energetic pooch. Bailey Lake Park is in the same area, and offers nature trails where Fido can sniff all types of plants while you walk off excess energy. The lake is stocked with catfish and trout, so you and Fido can enjoy relaxing on the grass with a fishing pole and your pup’s favorite toy.
Wakefield Heights Park is the perfect area to spend a lazy, or energetic, afternoon with your pup. Located in the Wakefield neighborhood, this small and quaint park features benches throughout where you and your pup can take a rest, or enjoy the view. There’s also a drinking fountain where you can fill your pooch’s bowl with fresh water. You and your pup can rack up the miles while walking around the park and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Follow the trail down Coyote Loop where you and your furry best friend can dip your feet in the Shannon Creek and enjoy the sound of a babbling brook.
Centennial Park in the Centennial Park/The Meadows neighborhood is a public area with a playground for the kids and walking trails for you and Fido. The grassy area is excellent for a game of tag, and when you and your pup are worn out, rest for a few minutes on the park benches. Restrooms are located nearby, and you can fill up Fido’s water bowl with a cool drink. Remember to bring your own “poop bags” to clean up after your pup has taken care of her business. All dogs need to be under control always, but they are free to run around in the open area away from the playground.
