My boyfriend and I moved to Austin a few months ago, along with our dog (a chow-chow, about 9 months old). We live in an apartment down south and are looking for a place where we can take our dog for some off-leash exercise and training. We've been searching and are really surprised at the lack of fenced-in dog parks, especially after hearing what a dog-friendly city Austin is. We visited friends in Dallas recently and went to a couple of different dog parks (one was even a combination dog park/bar, which was awesome.) What is with the lack of dog parks here? Are we just not looking in the right place? We wouldn't even mind one where we had to pay a monthly membership or something, if such a place exists. I know most of the public parks here have off-leash dog areas, but most of them are not fenced in (at least according to the info we've found online), and we would really like somewhere enclosed at least until we get our dog trained well enough to trust her in an un-fenced area. We tried Norwood once, but it was incredibly crowded so we decided to leave and try it again some other time. Are there any others we should try?

Dog House Drinkery Dog Park | While a bit of a drive for you, Doghouse Drinkery in Cedar Park is really a neat place! The dogs can play out under the trees while you hang out and have a drink! There is also a fenced off-leash park called Cedar Bark Park City of Cedar Park : Dog Park that has big dog (dry), big dog (wet) and small dog fenced areas. They have showers at the entrance too, so you can wash the dogs off before going home.

It is a bit of a drive, but we go to Cedar Park occasionally to hang out with friends who live up there (plus we may be moving up north once our lease is up this summer). We'll have to check those out next time we head that way. Thanks!

The riverside dog park at 35 and riverside is the most popular. Red bud isle is the second most popular. Tho not fenced it is surrounded by water... Sort of a doggy Alcatraz, and the views off the point are to die for... Just my opinions

We like the fenced dog park at the West Austin Park in Clarksville. That's much closer to you. It's at 1317 West 10th.
