If that isn't enough to relax you, consider the unique, landscape of the Texas Hill Country. Rolling hills covered in green brush and wildflowers cascade through the rustic plains of Texas in this region known for its affluent neighborhoods, lake-living, and wineries. It's here that the iconic 360 bridge towers above the valley.
Lakeland is relatively rustic, so sidewalks aren't always available while out on a walk with the pooch. It's likely you and your furry friend will enjoy hopping in the car and driving to any number of nearby spots rather than walking around the block.
Mary Quinlan Park is a short jaunt from Lakeland's core and it's here that you'll find gorgeous views of the Colorado River as well as kayak and boat access to the water. Being that it's so close to Lakeland, it's the perfect spot for a dog to enjoy some outdoor time.
Merely five minutes down the road is Selma Hughes Park. On the bank of the Colorado River, it is popular for kayakers looking for a spot to kick off as well as sunset-enthusiasts who dine al fresco at the picnic tables. However, there aren't any fenced-in areas, so your canine companion should be well-trained, or else, on a leash.
