A census-designated place and border town in El Paso County, Texas, Tornillo is a small yet welcome reprieve among some of the larger cities in the county. Don’t mistake this small town for being sleepy by any means, as the close proximity to the actual city of El Paso means there’s plenty to do in the area. While Tornillo itself doesn’t house many dog friendly activities, the drive to El Paso is such a short one that it’s definitely worth making. After all, your canine companion is sure to enjoy the ride almost as much as the activities you’ll be enjoying together.
For example, El Paso is home to a number of dog parks, including Westside Dog Park. This scenic park situated right in the midst of El Paso boasts separate fenced-in areas for small and large dogs to run off-leash with other pups close to their own size. There are also plenty of shady spots for both you and Fido to relax in, as well as a doggy water fountain where your wily woofer can wet their whistle. Just be prepared to bring plenty of doggy waste bags to clean up any messy mishaps from Fido.
