Dog Walking in Waco

Waco is the county seat of McLennan County in Texas. The city was founded in 1849 by a Wichita Native American group known as Huaco Indians. There are many attractions to fill you and your pup’s day with tons of fun!

H.O.T Dog Park is the one of the only off-leash dog parks in Waco. The park was founded by Dr. Luann Ervin and Jeanelle Kramolis in 2011. The park itself is a non-profit organization. The land was donated by Dr. Ervin, and they also accept donations from local pet-loving hearts to maintain and improve the park. Dr. Ervin's practice is next-door, which makes it quite convenient. Your pup can enjoy the park for at no cost, run freely and get an opportunity for some canine socialization.

You can also bring your adventurous tyke to Cameron Park where both of you can appreciate the magnificence of nature. For as long as your doggy friend is leashed, you can both take a hike or run in their twisting trails. Horses are also allowed in designated trails. Their multi-use National Recreation Trail System will give you never-ending adventure with nature. There are also other attractions in the park such as playgrounds, a zoo, and a scenic cliff. Who doesn’t love pizza? Shorty’s Pizza Shack is for you. They’re home of the $9.99 XL Pepperoni Pie. They also serve pies, chicken wings, and ice cold beer. You can stay at their gorgeous patio area together with your dog!

If it rains, a huge mud puddle has been known to form in the middle of the park, which your dog may enjoy more then you will.

If you and your dog are looking for a low key but fun park to take a walk around then visit the Alta Vista Park. The park features basketball courts, a picnic area, a playground, and tennis courts. There are a few walking trails that you and your pup can explore plus grass which is perfect for fetch. Locals love how clean the park is and how well the equipment has been maintained, but it is nearby a school so during busier school hours the park can be a bit occupied.

North Waco is home to Cameron Park, a pawsome 416-acre urban park to let your dog explore with you while you both enjoy the walk and the view. Cameron Park features scenic overlooks, river docks, a spray park, fire pits, and picnic areas. If your dog likes to explore, then walk along the trails and head to Lawson Point. This is one of the biggest parks in the state and that also means one of the busiest, so be cautious of bike riders on the trails when you and your pup are walking.
