The Katy Dog Park
5414 Franz Road
First of all, what is a dog park?
The Houston Dog Park Association (www.houstondogpark.org) states that, “Houston Dog Parks are public parks designated and built specifically for you and your dog to socialize and exercise safely and off-leash.”
The Katy Dog Park consists of 14 acres of grass, shade trees, a paved walking trail, water fountains, benches, agility equipment, a doggie wading pool, and a dog washing area. It was opened in March 2007, and is managed by the City of Katy. Dogs of all sizes are welcome to walk off-the-leash seven days a week from dawn until dusk. Events such as HOWL-o-WEEN and PAWS in the Park Easter Egg Hunt, among others, are held yearly.
