Millie Bush Bark Dog Park is a large public dog park located in Houston, Texas. It is a very popular destination not only among the dog owners who live in the area but also for those who live in the downtown area of Houston and drive 30 minutes just to attend this wonderful dog park. Considering the park’s size and amenities, it is not surprising that it is a favorite in the community.
The Millie Bush Bark Dog Park measures 8.68 acres in size and it is divided into two amenity-laden, off-leash areas. Both areas are securely fenced and have a double-gated entry system which minimizes the chance of dogs slipping out. The first area is massive and takes up most of the dog park. It has granite trails running through it and two man-made ponds for dogs to swim around and cool off in. It is meant for large dog breeds, however, small dogs are welcome as long as they don’t mind playing with bigger dogs.
There is also a small dog area that has a similar layout but is much smaller in size. It provides enough space for smaller canines to run around in and a small pond to splash and play in. There are plenty of benches lined throughout both areas as well as three seating areas that are covered for shade. There are also four water fountains, one in the small dog enclosure and the remaining ones are in the larger area. Both areas have some trees, fire hydrants, and plenty of running space for off-leash fun and exploration. Dog waste bag dispensers are always filled and the trash cans are strategically placed. Thanks to the park’s size, it rarely feels crowded even on the busier days.
In addition to all of the above, there are three washing stations right outside of the dog park which is very convenient since the terrain is mostly grassy so things can get muddy. Owners should bring their own shampoo and towel if they want to give their pooches a proper post-playtime shower. There is no restroom in the dog park, however, there is a public restroom just across the street. Parking isn’t a problem either since there are over 100 parking slots located directly by this incredible dog park.
