Watauga is a small suburban community on the north side of Fort Worth, surrounded by other neighborhoods and suburban cities. The urban area was once filled with ranches and farmlands, populated mostly when the city's first railway was put into place and a station and post office was built to accommodate the railroad. Life isn't too off the rails in Watauga, especially for pups thanks to the walkable downtown area, parks, trails, and 3 animal hospitals.
Capp Smith Park is the place to be for you and your pup in Watauga. The park boasts over 40 acres of lush fields, a trail system, and a pond for fishing. The looping concrete trail takes up 1.2 miles, and connects to a fishing pier, a pavilion, a playground, a fenced-in baseball field, and open fields. Dogs do have to remain on a leash, and can enjoy features like water fountains, clean-up stations, and benches.
Another dog-friendly park in the city is Foster Village Park, a place that provides recreational fields and open space to play in. There are 7 fenced-in baseball fields that fill up the park, with enclosed tennis courts and basketball courts. Grassy open fields surround the ball fields, with a creek, paved trails, a playground, a pavilion, restrooms, water fountains, benches, and picnic tables. Leashed pups will have plenty of room to play in the park and can even play in the fenced-in fields as long as no teams are playing.
Whether you're looking for a quiet area to walk Fido or a place to play in the busy area, Watauga makes sure to provide that and more for you and their four-legged residents.
