In Amarillo this off leash dog park is great.
While traveling we stopped at this park coming and going. It was great for the dogs to socialize and loosen up.
Social dogs, friendly people - great time

    Great Area, A few Lazy Owners

    The park itself is great! There is some sade, benches surrounding the open area, and a watering station. I wish owners would clean up after their pets, but that is a problem everywhere, not just at this park. There are a few regulars that have no business bringing their dogs (aggression and possible fighting), but I always leave when there seems to be a problem animal coming in. This is not the place for small dogs, some bigger dogs will keep picking on them. My chihuahua does NOT come with me when I come here. Plenty of space for a game of fetch away from the crowd and for a large dog to stretch their legs. 4.5/5.

    Great Park, Lousy Owners

    I’d give the park 5 bones and the pet owners 1 bone for not picking up after their dogs!! It’s so aggravating to find a nice facility abused by irresponsible owners. It’s a big area, and my rambunctious pup got to run her energy out.

    Good For Road Trips

    We stopped here twice on our way through town - it’s a great spot to let your dog out for a stretch. Large and well maintained.

    We’ve only ever been here in the morning so I don’t know what kind of dogs or owners are usually here.

    Traveling through

    We have dog that doesn't like to "go" on a leash. This park was great. Not far off the main highway and opens early and closes late. I would caution about visiting at 10pm on a Saturday night... The park was full of teens racing up and down the streets. It was 15 degrees out so I'm sure on nice nights it's even more populated.

    Beware Your Pet can get hurt

    I have stopped going to this park because of the aggressive dogs at the park...Not all are but 1 is way too many, there are many pets not neutered and I have seen several dogfight and 1 where the dog had to be taken to the vet from injuries. I do not recommend this park at all.

    Good spot. I would go again.

    Owner of a 90lb lab. Great spot for day 2 of a cross country trip. After 20 hours of driving it was a good relief for the dog. It's quite large and what you would expect for a park in North Texas.

    Open late and well lit

    After 2 long days drive on our way to Phoenix our 2 Aussies were going stir crazy in hotels and needed a good run. We got in after 8 so went around 9pm and it was well lit and safe place to run. The dog park section was a bit difficult to find in the dark and we weren't exactly sure where the entrance was, so we walked around the fenced enclosure until we found the entrance. It seems to be open at all hours (meaning no locks on gates). Dogs got their run and are now well rested! Relieved to find a place later in the evening!!

    Amarillo Tx John Stiff dog park

    We greatly appreciated this dog park after driving all day. The park was a little hard to find because the entry sign was dark with age. The park grounds were uneven and muddy from rain. Still recommend because it is friendly and big enough to get Fido a run.

    awesome

    I just travelled cross country with my daughter and her dog, we saw a lot of dog parks!! This was our favorite!! So many nice dogs, it was a huge beautiful park and it has lights for night time. There are a lot of ball parks and busy things going on all around it so it's not in a creepy part of town after dark.

    Here is the Address

    Typical park- good for a leg stretch. The dog park is tucked inside a big park called Southwest Park. The larger park has an address which you can enter into your GPS: 4800 Bell St.

    perfect mid road trip stretch break

    This park was just perfect for us. Located inside a larger park with playgrounds and grassy areas, this was a large fenced in area. It's of space for big and all dogs alike. There were about six big shady trees, with benches underneath.

    Big Enough for Big Dogs

    Great park for letting your big dogs stretch their legs during a trip. Well fenced with the holding pen at the opening (which I love). Parking isn't convenient here, though. I parked along the street beside the park near the entrance. My dogs had a great time!

    Great park

    Huge open space for ripping around. Our Vizsla had a great time.

    Had a great time

    Driving through from Colorado to Tyler Texas. Stopped both ways to let the dogs stretch their legs at the dog park. It was great. Wonderful people, dogs, large fenced area, water - just great!

    Nice park in a nice park!

    This is a review of the John Stiff Memorial Dog Park located in Southwest Park, Amarillo TX. This is a nice dog park located in a really nice city park. Lots of room to walk around on-leash and a nice sized enclosure for off-leash play. There are a few benches, doggie water fountain, plastic tunnel, clean up bags/trash cans and lots of room to run. There is no separate small dog area. We were there on a Monday afternoon and there were about 7 or 8 other dogs but I imagine this park gets busy on the weekend! You can enter southwest park from either Bell St or SW 45th Ave (we found it by typing Bell St and 48th ave in the GPS). The park road is a loop, so once you are in the park just keep driving and you will see the dog park (it is right next to the road - the nearest parking lot is across the street from the park so most people park on the road). We met some nice people and my dog had a great time running around, we will definitely visit this dog park again!
