Pawn Springs Dog Park

Danny Jackson Dog Park | 4828 1/2 Loop Central Dr., Bellaire area

What this park lacks in natural beauty, it makes up for in location. The property is one of the only public off-leash green spaces in the area, complete with wading pools, big stretches of grass, and separate small- and large-dog areas. 

Deputy Darren Goforth Dog Park | 9118 Wheat Cross Dr., Cypress

Water dogs won’t want to leave this recently renamed park. A large, fenced-in play area opens up to a public lake, perfect for pets who want to dive head-first into the action. 

Pawm Springs Dog Park | 15300 University Blvd., Sugar Land

Palm trees and lounge chairs line the swimming pools in both the large- and small-dog sections of this six-acre, tropical-themed park that feels more like a resort. There are agility courses for the landlubbers, too, along with pavilions and picnic tables. 

Lents Family Dog Park | 18103 Cypress Trace Rd., Spring/Cypress 

Part of the secluded, 16-acre Lents Family Park West, these two separate play areas for large and small dogs provide a shady canopy of trees, multiple swimming areas, and walking paths for humans who want to get their exercise, too.
