Marshall is a bustling small town on the east side of Texas, made popular by its connection to 4 major highways. The city is known for a lot of things, like "Wonderland of Lights", the largest light festival in the country, and as the "Pottery Capital of the World", thanks to its large manufacturing industry in pottery products. The town has plenty of other nicknames, but what you'll know it as is a dog-friendly community, known for its love and open parks for pups and humans.
City Park is the featured park of the city, with the most visitors of any other park in the city. The city-center park is pretty busy, thanks to its available features like its grassy open space, fenced-in baseball field, playground, paved trails, shaded sitting areas, and picnic spots. The park is also dog-friendly, but dogs do have to remain on a leash. Be sure to enjoy amenities like water fountains, clean-up stations, a gazebo, benches, and trash bins.
The Oak Trail Park is the largest park in the city, although its a more natural park that's completely covered in trees. There are forested trails, with paved walkways that connect to features like a picnic pavilion, playgrounds, and restrooms. Dogs can play in the developed area on a leash but are allowed to explore the 2 miles of trails inside the park off their leash.
Whatever you decide to call the city of Marshall, you'll never forget the love and care the city puts into taking care of its four-legged residents, and the 4 animal hospitals the city provides.
