"Must love dogs!"

Judging by the amount of local love for canine companions, you'd think it was a prerequisite to being an Austin resident. Austin pooches are lucky dogs! The town is home to doggy daycare facilities, dog bakeries, fancy training schools, groomers, and more.

It is also home to some of the best spaces for dogs to jump and play. Next time you're looking for a place for Fido to explore, check out these awesome Austin dog parks.

  • Red Bud Isle: This off-leash island dog park is a puppy's paradise. Located in West Austin near the Tom Miller Dam at 3401 Redbud Trail 78703, this 13-acre park offers more than a half mile of well-maintained trails, shady trees, large fields and a tree-lined shore for you to relax while your doggie takes a dip.
  • Barking Springs: Barking Springs is to dogs as Barton Springs is to Austinites - a cool oasis with a bustling social scene.
