Garland Opens New Dog Park

Dog Park Opening 360x250

Garland’s new dog park, located within Central Park along Glenbrook Drive, is officially open for play!

Amenities at the Garland Dog Park include three fenced paddocks, drinking fountains, shade, lighting, seating, fencing and parking. The park will be open daily from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., closing only for routine maintenance and after rain events or other wet conditions.

“Our new dog park at Central Park is large and lovely, a greenspace our residents and their fur-children can enjoy for many decades to come,” said District 2 City Council Member Deborah Morris. “Dog parks aren’t primarily for dogs; they provide a happy meeting place for dog owners. Dogs are great at making introductions!”

Each of the three dog paddocks has a 6-foot-high fence and double entry gates for safe entrance. One paddock will be used for large dogs (35 pounds and greater), while another will be for small dogs (less than 35 pounds). The third paddock will rest while the other two are active.

Other amenities include magnetic locks on gates for security and a new restroom building on north side of the park.

“We are very excited to finally have a dog park in Garland, Texas!” said Garland Mayor Scott LeMay. “This new amenity to our park system will offer yet another way for people and pets to ‘Get Out & Play.’ Hopefully our furry friends of all sizes will agree. The park offers 3 acres of open space for them to run and play off leash. Hopefully they and their owners will make some new friends and enjoy some much needed free time.”

The City broke ground on the new dog park Aug. 1. LeMay traced the Garland Dog Park efforts to the early 2000s and a group of residents known as Garland Bark Park. The group has grown into Garland Pawsibilities, the City’s key partner at the nearby Pet Adoption Center, located at 813 Main St.
