White Rock Lake Dog Park

The newly renovated White Rock Lake Dog Park is a 3-acre "off-leash" dog park located on the northwest side of White Rock Lake Park at the intersection of Mockingbird Lane and W. Lawther Drive. This doggy paradise boasts great views of the lake, trail, and wildflower areas. You and your pet will enjoy the wide variety of big and small K-9's that frequent this park, and most importantly you're only steps away from hiking, jogging, cycling, or boating around Dallas' largest lake.

The dog park is closed on rain days and on Mondays for maintenance. Visit Website

Or call (214) 670-8895 for more information.

    One size fits all!

    This park has it all: a lake for swimming, a romp and roam play space, agility spots. Any dog would love it Here! And for us, ample parking, bag dispensers and cans. And a pretty place.

    Great park

    I took my pitty, my friends schunauzer, and my sons little mix dog. We had a blast! I thought it was on Northwest highway though. Great time! Dogs loved it

    Its such a promising park

    It has a lot of space, but there's just dog poop everywhere, lots of untrained dogs, disracted dog owners and is super tricky to get to. There's just way better parks in the area, so I've given up on this one.

    dogs loved it!

    I absolutely loved this dog park, mainly because of the lake access. My female dog loves the water so she had a blast. It was extremely crowded and trying to play fetch with my 60lb and 75lb dogs was near impossible without someone stepping in the way, but that's what happens on the weekend, everyone is trying to get their dogs out. Also there were a couple of extremely aggressive dogs when I went and the owner wasn't doing much about his dog running up and attacking mine out of nowhere. I'm still giving the park a 5 though because those who maintain the park cannot control what dog owners do. Just beware like you should anywhere you take your dogs that not all pet owners are responsible!

    Great Park!

    This park is fantastic. The renovations have made all the difference. The park is now clean, beautiful, and the perfect place to let your dog off leash. My dog, a 35lb Corgi, spent his time running around, sniffing new dogs, and lying in the shade. I am so happy that this dog park is now open and is such a safe, fun place for my dog. 9/7/15.

    White Rock Lake Dog Park

    At one time I would have recommended this Dog Park... However, I now believe this Dog Park should be SHUT-DOWN... There are Fecies all over the ground at one time if there was a problem with an aggressive Dog you were adviced to call 911... They will not respond, 911 says to call Animal Control... I have been bitten by aggresive Dogs and owners that do nothing... I contracted an infection from a dog bite... 911 said to call Animal control... I spoke to my Dogs Vet, who informed me that White Rock Lake Dog Park had more problems than any other dog park and strongly encouraged me NOT to take my K-9 to that park.... The Vet said there were more deceases report at that park than any other park do to lack of sanitation... I can comment from personal experience on the fact that no one is enforcing aggressive Dogs... At one time if there was a problem you could call 911 for help if there was an aggressive Dog and the owner did nothing not any more... I have had to take intravence antibotics and a long term course of oral anti-biotics.. Good lick I wish you well if you should decide to go anyway......

    I took my young lab here several weeks ago (He is almost 2 years old). He developed a fatal bacterial infection (mycoplasma). The dog park is the only place he has gone besides home that we can think of that he possibly caught the infection. He was vaccinated properly and otherwise a very healthy dog. I know things like this can happen but just please be mindful of risks in such a setting. There were numerous fecies on the ground where unthoughtful owners had left them and the black buckets of water standing around were really nasty. After my dog's sicknessI have spoken to numerous vets and the one thing they all said was DO NOT TAKE YOUR ANIMAL TO A DOG PARK. If this saves one dog, then my comment is well worth the effort. I have visited dog parks in Austin area and there is NO comparision to the difference in sanitary measures as compared to the White Rock facility. It was the first one I had experienced in Dallas. Never again.

    Hard to get to it

    I wanted to love this park, had been going for several years until finding a much better one. White Rock Lake Dog Park is hard to find, parking always good, but the small dog side too small, all dirt, no shade or seating.

    Big park, friendly crowd

    I love how bit this park is. It's got a huge "all-dog" area and a pretty big small dog area. And then you can also take your dog to a fenced area of the lake, which is amazing. The people are generally pretty friendly although you do get a few agressive dogs. This park can get pretty busy during the after work hours but at least it's big enough for everyone. My only complaint is that there aren't any fun things for the dogs to play on. But at least they have the lake!
