Pack up your pooch and make your way over to North Austin so you can enjoy the pawsome Yett Creek Park. Often overlooked, this undeveloped green space sprawls across 40 acres of land. It’s the pawfect place to exercise your favorite four legged companion!
Yett Creek Park isn’t a traditional neighborhood park. You won’t find playgrounds and sport courts here. Instead, this puptacular
place is a patch of land with forests and thick shrubbery. This woofderful
slice of nature can be accessed in two areas. On the north end, there’s a
trailhead just off of Riata Vista Circle, by the Apple business park. There’s
another trailhead on the west side of the park on West Cow Path.
Once you’ve parked the car and made it into the park, it’s
time to start your walk! There’s a furrific network of trails that weaves
throughout the pawperty. All in all, the trails add up to just over a mile. Let
your pooch be the guide as you meander around the park. They’ll be in heaven as
they track the new scents and frolic in the meadows. The park is a beautiful
combination of open fields and groves of oak and cedar trees. Since the forested
areas provide shade, your pal will enjoy some relief from the hot Texas sun. The
best part about this park? It has a cool creek, so your buddy can dip their
paws in the water and splash around.
The park’s amenities are pretty limited. In fact, the
only thing you’ll find here are clean-up bags. Make sure you grab one and
put it to use! And don’t forget to bring plenty of cold water from home. After all
that exploring, your furry BFF will need a long drink.
No bones about it, your pup will go mutts over Yett Creek
