Dog Walking in Mt Pleasant

Mount Pleasant was established in 1848 and is the largest city in Titus County in northeast Texas. Originally founded as a farming community, it became an important railroad hub over the course of the late nineteenth century. Its saloons were popular until Prohibition, when locals started making moonshine. Its historic downtown is part of the Texas Main Street program. Surrounded by lakes, this pleasant part of Texas is full of outdoor recreation opportunities and is a wonderful place to share life with a pup.

One of the most popular spots in town for outdoor play is Town Lake. This 89-acre lake is a popular spot for boating and fishing and for pooches who like to fling themselves into the water on a hot day. It's surrounded by 12 acres of grassy park space, much of which is shaded by majestic pines and other tall trees. You're likely to meet lots of four-legged and two-legged folk at Town Lake on summer weekends when people use the numerous picnic tables and grills to have barbecues with friends and family. Many picnic tables are pleasantly situated right at the water's edge. You will need to keep your dog on a leash at Town Lake and bring your own waste bags and water.

Whether you like sushi or barbecue, wear a Stetson and spurs or a ball cap and sneakers, you'll want to kick up your heels here and settle down for a while to enjoy the good life with your canine companion.
