Every year, many visitors are drawn to El Paso because of its parks, nature tourism, and pet-friendly attractions. The Franklin Mountains State Park, which is recognized as the largest urban park in the entire United States, covers 37 square miles and offers approximately 26,000 acres of wilderness to explore. If you want to travel through the park on a defined path, don't worry, there are several well-marked hiking paths that wind throughout the park giving families and their dogs access to this unique landmark.
Ascarate Park is dedicated to sports and outdoor activities, including dog walking. At over 400 acres, the park has more than enough room for a golf course, a lake, several playgrounds, and an aquatic center. Many dogs are happy to accompany their families as they walk the trails or enjoy a picnic.
For a trip with less dirt and more air conditioning, take your pup to the Las Palmas Marketplace. Certain stores may not allow dogs inside, but furry companions are welcome in the communal areas, so you the minimum you can at least get some quality window-shopping done.
Kick back and relax with a cool drink at one of several dog-friendly bars in the city, such as the Hope and Anchor. With this wide variety of activities to choose from, you and your pup will have a difficult time deciding how to pass your free time in El Paso!
