The Top 15 Rated Dog Parks In Houston

WRITTEN BY Carter

1. Danny Jackson Dog Park

Danny Jackson Bark Dog Park is a public dog park located in Houston, Texas. It is just 15 minutes by car from the downtown Houston area, and according to its regular patrons, it is definitely worth the drive. This 2.76-acre dog park has a long, rectangular shape, and it is divided into two separate off-leash areas. The large run is meant for bigger hounds while the smaller enclosure is great for small dog breeds, and it can be accessed through a separate entrance. Both areas provide a good amount of space for dogs to freely run around and get their daily dose of leash-free exercise. While one area is bigger than the other, both have a fair amount of features and activities.  There are two dog ponds for swimming and splashing in, one in each area, and several drinking fountains in both runs. There are plenty of benches scattered around the dog park, and both areas have shaded seating.

 

2. Johnny Steele Dog Park

One of Buffalo Bayou Park’s most active destinations is Johnny Steele Dog Park. It is located near Allen Parkway and Montrose Boulevard. Features include a pond, shade structures, dog washing areas, benches, and drinking fountains complete with spigots dogs.

 

3. Millie Bush Dog Park

There is tons to do at this fenced, off-leash dog park, including a separate small dog area, doggie showers, shade, water spigots, benches, and fire hydrants. Houston’s first park for cavorting canines is the top dog. Millie Bush Bark Park in far west Houston has been ranked the best in the nation by Dog Fancy magazine. The 15-acre dog park, with three human-made ponds, walkways, and fake fire hydrants were opened 1 1/2 years ago by Harris County Precinct.

 

4. EaDo Dog Park

EaDog Park is the newest green space designed to let your dogs run and play, all while you enjoy a nice view of the Houston skyline. With a nice neighborhood feel in east Downtown, the park features nearby parking, pick up bags, and a secure gated fence. While this is one of Houston’s smaller dog parks, this outdoor space is a rare gem where your four-legged friends can stretch their legs and explore leash-free.

 

5. Ervan Chew Dog Park

This Houston dog park is fully fenced and includes separate large and small dog areas, drinking fountains, shade trees, and benches. Restrooms nearby. Ervan Chew Dog Park holds a designated play zone that is fenced in, so dogs may have the freedom to run leash-free. It may be important to know that the fence only goes to about four feet high, which can be worrisome for some owners that have larger dogs. You will also find shaded areas at this park, sitting benches, drinking fountains for dogs and humans, and bathrooms within walking distance. This Houston dog park is quite popular and is great for all types of breeds.

 

6. TC Jester Dog Park

TC Jester Dog Park is a great place to take your dog for some morning fun on any day. The TC Jester dog park has a large dog area and a small dog area, a dog wash area, a drinking fountain, a shaded area with benches, and two separate dog runs. Within the large dog area, you will find a dog run that is 31,000 square feet, and within the small dog area, you will find a dog run that is 16,000 square feet. All owners must pick up and watch over their dogs at all times. In addition, all dogs must be tagged, licensed, and vaccinated before they enter the park. No dogs under four months old or dogs in heat may enter the park, and all owners are liable for their pet’s behavior. This dog park is off-leash, so your dog can run around free when they are within the park.

 

7. Alexander Deussen Dog Park

This dog park is fully fenced with a separate small dog area, benches, and drinking water. There are also agility courses and a place to hose your dogs off before leaving. Alexander Deussen, a petroleum geologist, donated a 309-acre site on Lake Houston to Harris County. The site was converted into a public park and named Alexander Deussen Park. The park’s highlight is a herd of buffalo, allowing visitors to view these large and beautiful creatures in a natural setting. There is no charge to use the boat ramps at Alexander Deussen Park, and fishing is permitted from piers. The 2.5-mile jogging trail has an asphalt surface with exercise equipment along the trail. There are 3 multi-purpose fields located in this park. These fields can be used for baseball/softball, football, and/or soccer.

 

8. West Webster Dog Park

This is a tiny and basic dog run, which is good for dogs and dog owners who do not like mud or water. There is a water fountain to help keep the doggo hydrated and a hose for washing dogs before you leave. There are many benches for seating but no water features, just an open area for dogs who like to run. The park is open daily from sun up to sundown.
