Dallas covers a total area of more than 380 square miles, which leaves plenty of room for parks and other recreational areas that residents and their pets can enjoy. As of 2015, the city is operating 406 parks, many of which welcome dogs along with their human families.
Klyde Warren Park is running a broad range of activities every day, including fitness classes, concerts, and games. The good news for you and Fido? Well behaved dogs are given permission to roam throughout the park, as long as they are leashed. For off-leash play time, stop by the attached My Best Friend’s Park, where dogs can run through fountains with their four-legged friends.
For a more natural environment, visit the Cedar Ridge Preserve. There are several trails to choose from, many of which provide unique glimpses of the area’s wildlife. Pick a path that fits your and your pup’s moods, and explore the beauty of nature in peace and quiet.
All this exercise is bound to leave you hungry. Dallas has many dog-friendly restaurants lining its streets, among them The Porch and Truck Yard. These establishments have outdoor areas where you and your dog can relax together, providing you with a place to fuel up after a day enjoying the sun and the fresh Texan air.
