Dog Walking in Lufkin

Lufkin is a metropolitan city surrounded by thick forests and vast farmland on all sides. The area offers a great contrast to the nature preserves found here, and has become a popular spot for outdoor enthusiasts over the years. Not only has Lufkin brought in more outdoor fans, but also many dog lovers thanks to its natural and developed areas to walk Fido.

The Lufkin Dog Park is one of the best places to take Fido out to play. The fenced-in area is surrounded by thick trees that offer privacy and shade, with a separate area for large and small dogs, double-gated entrances, and free toys to run around and play with. Additional features of the park include water fountains, clean-up stations, and benches.

Morris Frank Park is the largest recreational park in the city, with over 7 different sized baseball fields, some fenced-in. Around the ballparks is open space, along with paved walkways, restrooms, pavilions, and picnic tables to enjoy. Dogs do have to remain on a leash inside this park, but have access to great amenities like water fountains, benches, nighttime lights, and trash bins.

Lufkin has nine veterinarians, and is the headquarters of all four United States National Forests, and uses that to help extend dog-friendly outdoor places to enjoy for humans and pups.
