They say that everything is bigger in Texas, and if Wagging Tail Dog Park in Dallas is any indication, they may have a point. Wagging Tail Dog Park is the first dog park designed by the city of Dallas, and they did a heck of a job. The park, which was built in 2009 is nearly seven manicured acres.
The park is next to White Creek, which runs through suburban and urban Dallas, eventually ending in White Rock Lake. Wagging Tail Dog Park overlooks a small waterfall on White Creek. There is a flagstone observation deck over the falls. There are paved trails throughout the park, as well as picnic tables and grills.
Your dog is welcome on the observation deck and in the picnic area, provided that it is leashed. Your dog does not need to be leashed in the fenced in dog park. The park is generously sized at almost seven acres. The park is divided into two sections, with one reserved for small dogs weighing less than 35 pounds. Wagging Trail is a beautiful dog park.
The fencing is wrought iron, with narrow slats to ensure safety. Both the small section and the large section are covered in grass. There are benches throughout on both sides of the park. There are nicely shaded areas in part as well as bright, sunny areas. So the city has provided extra fountains for people and puppies. You should be aware that there aren't any benches in the shaded areas, so plan accordingly.
The city of Dallas takes a lot of pride in Wagging Tail, and maintains the park meticulously, including the landscaping. The park is closed on Mondays to allow for thorough maintenance. The park has poop bags in both sections, but visitors should still pack extra bags because the park is very popular. Wagging Tail is a beautiful park, especially for a dog park. It's a great place to spend an afternoon.
