The town of Rendon is located in Texas’s Tarrant County, less than 20 miles south of Fort Worth. Originally founded back in the 1800s, the town was named after its founder, Joaquin Rendon. As Fort Worth soared to popularity over the years, so did Rendon, which is now considered a bedroom community of the larger city. Residents can enjoy the quiet suburban lifestyle that Rendon has to offer while enjoying all that Fort Worth has to offer, and considering both Dallas and Arlington are within an hour’s drive, the opportunities for fun seem limitless.
Luckily, the fun isn’t just for you! While Rendon doesn’t have any dog parks or dog-friendly dining options, all of the larger cities nearby certainly do. There are also a few options in nearby smaller towns. Rendon does have one veterinarian office, so whether you need routine care for your pup or he’s sick or injured, you won’t have to look too far to find the help you need.
If you enjoy small-town charm but like having all the luxuries offered by a larger city nearby, Rendon is the perfect place for you and Fido to hang his leash at night!
About 15 minutes away from Rendon, you and Fido can visit Pet Paradise Dog Park. It’s located in Burleson’s Keeler neighborhood. Does your dog like running around off-leash and playing with some furrific new friends? If he does, he’ll love this bark park! You do have to get a membership to join this park, but don’t let that scare you off. It simply allows park officials to make sure your dog is up to date on vaccines and can safely play with other pups. What are you waiting for? We can already hear your pooch howling in anticipation!
If you’re looking for another fun bark park, check out Tails N’ Trails Dog Park. This bark park is about 25 minutes away from Rendon, so you won’t have to venture too far off. At Tails N’ Trails, you can have the best of both worlds. Part of the park is an open area, which is perfect for a game of fetch. The other section of the park is heavily wooded, so if your dog loves playing hide and seek in nature, he’s all set! This park does provide water and waste disposal bags for you, so there’s no need to leave behind any mess!
During the summer, Texas can get unbelievably hot. Why not let your dog go for a dip to cool off? About 25 minutes away from Rendon, your dog can visit ZBonz Dog Park in Fort Worth’s Ridglea Hills neighborhood. Both sides of the park – one for large dogs and one for small dogs – have ponds that your dog can do the doggie paddle in. Water fountains are available throughout the park, as well. If beating the heat isn’t enough to lure you, this dog park sits on ten acres of land, so there’s also plenty of room for your pup to burn off any pent-up energy.
Fort Woof Dog Park is located in West Meadowbrook’s Gateway Park. It’s about 20 miles north of Rendon, but if you’ve got an energetic dog, Fort Woof can’t be beat! Teeter-totters, jumping hoops, and weaving poles are just a few of the different types of agility equipment you can find in this bark park. Just consider it a doggie boot camp! Of course, your dog is also welcome to chill with his pawesome friends. Fort Wood does provide water for your pup, but you’ll want to bring your own doggie bags. Have a ball at Fort Woof in Fort Worth!
If you’re feeling hungry and want to bring your dog along, you’ll definitely want to travel 15 minutes to Fort Worth’s Fairmount neighborhood. This neighborhood has nearly a dozen dog-friendly eateries. Cat City Grill does welcome dogs on its patio, despite its name. The grill serves up delicious steak and seafood. Brewed is a popular brunch spot in Fairmount. Locals rave about the chicken and waffles; it’s a classic! Fido can dine with you outside. Both establishments require doggie diners to be on a leash. If you just want a drink, there’s also a coffee shop and a brewery in the neighborhood. Bone Appetit!
