1. Tails 'N Trails

Off leash Drinking water available Dedicated areas Double entry and exit gates

This 5.7-acre park has all the amenities you could want from a dog park: a doggy drinking fountain, pet waste stations, shaded areas, seating, and separate areas for large and small dogs. The large size, combined with the convenient location and variety of areas, has made Tails ‘N Trails one of the most popular dog-friendly parks in Arlington, with both humans and dogs regularly visiting.

2. River Legacy Park

Drinking water available

River Legacy Park is described as the “crown jewel” of Arlington’s park system, with over 1,000 acres of space that houses a variety of amenities. These amenities include an incredible playground, hiking and biking trails, and easy access to ponds and rivers. Although it’s not technically a “dog park,” as there isn’t an off-leash area, it is an exceptionally dog-friendly park. Well-behaved dogs on leashes will love running around the area.

3. Central Bark Dog Park

Off leash Drinking water available Dedicated areas Double entry and exit gates

Central Bark Dog Park is the first dog park in Grand Prairie, and locals have taken to it immediately. There are actually three areas in this park: one for small dogs, one for large dogs, and one that is reserved, and the three rotate regularly, which helps preserve the turf. With forty spaces for parking and accessible paving that goes into the off-leash areas, this is a dog park that’s available for everyone.

4. Euless Dog Park

Off leash Double entry and exit gates Dedicated areas Drinking water available

This is a very popular dog park that you can enjoy in Euless, even if you don’t live in the actual city. It offers two separate areas, one for small dogs less than 40 pounds and the other for large dogs. Both sections offer doggy bag dispensers, drinking fountains, shade, and play features, so all dogs can enjoy themselves. The park is closed every Thursday for maintenance, but it’s open during daylight hours on all other days of the week.

5. Fort Woof Dog Park

Off leash Drinking water available

This was the first off-leash dog park in Fort Worth, and it’s still one of the most popular dog parks in the DFW area. By offering individual areas for small dogs under 40 pounds and large dogs, Fort Woof can provide a great experience for all dogs and their owners. No memberships are required, but all dogs are required to have a license, either from Fort Worth or from the city you live in.

Enjoy your time outdoors with your dog

Whether you don’t have a large backyard, you want to get outside with your dog, or you’re looking to socialize your dog, a dog park is an awesome option. However, it’s also important that your dog is healthy and well-behaved before you bring them to a dog park.
