Local Dog Parks
Do you have a pet? You’re in luck! There are some terrific dog parks that are either part of our Harris County park system or are sponsored by other communities. Each has its own amenities and vibe, so choose one (or more) of the following destinations the next time your pup has an itch for a new place to roll in the grass.
Congressman Bill Archer Park, located on State Highway 6 North, is open from 7 am until dusk. And you may need an entire day for your dog to explore all of the possibilities. The park is divided into a large dog area and a small dog area. Each area has a doggie pond (bring your own towels, of course), a doggie shower, and its own agility course. Can your dog race around obstacles other than your briefcase and your coffee table? Learn that and more at Congressman Bill Archer Park.
Next on our Harris County park list is Millie Bush Dog Park. Not to be outdone by Congressman Bill Archer Park, Millie Bush Park has three ponds, two of which adjoin the “Large Dog Park” and the third of which is within the confines of the “Small Dog Park.” Doggie showers are located by the parking lot and picnic benches are scattered throughout the entirety of the 8+ acre park. It’s also open from 7 am to dusk.
Finally, why not visit the very cool City of Katy Dog Park? Located at 5414 Franz Rd in Katy, it’s open from dawn to dusk, has a puppy wading pool, dog showers, and fountains for both you and your furry friend. Katy also sponsors many seasonal pet-friendly events including Howl-A-Ween, when you’re invited to attend as your doggie’s guest so long as you donate canned or dry dog food. Your favorite furry creature can enter the costume contest and there will be games for the dogs and their dog parents.
These are just a few of the dog parks in our neighborhood. When you return from your visit, make sure that your Main Dog shares his experiences with his friends at the Alexan Enclave Private Dog Park so you can plan another visit! And contact us for more information about dog-friendly adventures in our community.
And remember, the good life awaits you at Alexan Enclave.
