Round Rock's dog park now open
More than 100 dogs and their owners helped the City of Round Rock open the Round Rock Dog Depot, a 1.5 acre fenced community dog park, on Saturday, March 29.
The fenced park, at Round Rock's Lake Creek Park, 800 Deerfoot Drive, is the first leash-free area for dogs in the city limits. The grand opening included a vendors, grooming demonstrations, dog adoption information, microchipping and a fly ball demo.
The park is divided into 3 areas; large dog area, small dog (under 40 pounds) and another open area which will serve as a rotation area to allow for grass regrowth and general maintenance to the park. All areas have access to water for the dogs. Additional features include sally-port entrances which are winding to make it harder for dogs to escape when entering and exiting the dog park. Park hours are from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. from April 1-Oct. 1 and from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Oct. 2-March 31.
The dog park is part of the Greater Lake Creek Improvements project. Future amenities include running water, dog water play area, benches, parking, volleyball courts in Lake Creek park and a trail connecting to A.W. Grimes Boulevard and the Clay Madsen Recreation Center.
