Dog Walking in San Benito

San Benito is a desert town near the border of Texas, right at the state's tip. The area is also known as "Resaca City" thanks to the Resaca de Los Fresnos, a lake that cuts through the town. Thanks to its mild winters, the city becomes popular at that time with tourists and retired citizens looking for a nice place to settle for the season. Whether you're coming to enjoy the outdoors in summer or winter, you'll be able to take your pup outside with you and enjoy many of the city's dog-friendly parks and trails.

Kennedy Park is one of those dog-friendly spots that offers a scenic lawn and an area to play in along the river. With a children's playground, open space, paved trails, and plenty of places to sit and rest, you and Fido will fall in love with the area. Although you do have to leash up your pup, you can still enjoy features like water fountains, clean-up stations, picnic areas, a pavilion, trash bins, and clean-up stations.

Stookey Park is located on the southern side of the city, and provides 6 fenced-in baseball fields, soccer fields, basketball courts, and a pool that is off-limits to pups.
