There is a Park for the 4-Legged Member of the Family

If you live in an apartment, a condo, or just need more space for your dog to run and play, you might want to find a local dog park. Here is information about established parks, a park that just opened, and discussions about approving a dog park in the Galveston Bay Area. Remember, each park has their rules posted at the entrance-please read them and be a good neighbor.

Nassau Bay Dog Park- Lake Nassau Park, located at the southern-most end of Upper Bay Road, adjacent to Lake Nassau; 18900 Upper Bay Road, Nassau Bay. The dog park is fenced.

Bay Area Dog Park– located at 7500 East Bay Area Blvd, Clear Lake/Pasadena. Opened in 2009; this fenced 5.3 acre dog park has a separate area for small dogs, drinking water & wash stations, shade and benches.

PearlandSouthdown Dog Park, located at 2150 Countryplace Parkway. Amenities include covered picnic area, dog waste stations, shade structures, water fountain.

PearlandIndependence Dog Park, located at 3919 Liberty Drive. Your pet can play off-leash in this fenced park which includes separate areas for small and large dogs.

Texas City Dog Park– Amoco Park, located at 1500 29th Street North. The 5.8 acre fenced park had their soft opening the first week of February; a Grand Opening is scheduled for February 28th. Amenities include: separate areas for large/small dogs, water fountains (for dogs & owners), benches, and agility equipment. Future plans are to build a pavilion nearby.

League City currently has no dog park. In 2009, the League City Council voted to proceed with plans for a dog park, but then postponed the development to evaluate priorities and costs. In April 2014, the League City Council voted 7-1 to direct city staff to weigh public interest in a dog park through a survey. There has been no update.
