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.
Katy, Texas is the perfect location to participate in the Home Farming Movement! It has a terrific climate and a lot of open space. However, the movement is even adaptable to apartment dwellers that enjoy home grown fruits and vegetables. The movement was initiated by Triscuit, those wonderful crackers made by the Nabisco company. They have a great website to help you get started or to fine tune your existing gardening skills. Topics such as planning your home farm, starting a farm log, a crop guide, watering, spacing, raised beds, soil preparation, recipes, videos, and connecting with others are covered. Texas only has 235 home farms listed out of 53,525 nationwide. And… believe it or not… there are no Katy residents within that number! So, why don’t you sign up and be the first!
