With approximately six acres of grassy play area, Georgetown boasts one of the largest off-leash dog parks in Central Texas. It is always a pleasure to see fur babies wearing themselves out; running, wrestling, getting muddy, and making new friends in a well-shaded safe place just for them. It’s also a popular meet-up for humans who have breeds in common and it’s safer than walking on busy streets.
Regular visitors to the park come from all over Georgetown, around Williamson County, Austin, and even as far as Salado to enjoy the social time and a peaceful spot in the middle of the city.
Just arrive on a leash, then ditch the leash—the city provides drinking water from fountains and small buckets, and even some large troughs that often double as wading pools for cooling off. There are also bags and trash cans available to keep human shoes clean. There is parking available, plenty of shaded benches, and agility equipment if your athletes want to show off their freestyle.
There is a separate entrance for dogs over/under 30 pounds. Little dogs are welcome in the big dog enclosure if they’re up for it, but the big boys should keep to the over-30 side.
Any vet will tell you… when your best friend gets the physical and mental exercise they need, they are happier, less destructive, and not as anxious to be alone because… a tired dog is a happy dog!
The Dog Park is located at 151 Holly St in Georgetown and they are open 6am to 9pm daily.
