Redding Trail Dog Park has separate sections for both small dogs and large dogs. In each section, there are drinking fountains for pets along with drinking fountains for people. The trail is beautifully landscaped dotted with comfy benches, so we can relax while Max romps around. The White Rock Lake Dog Park has an off-leash area where pets can play and also jump in the lake for a swim. As with our last trip, we had such a good time at these parks, we’ll definitely go back so Max can have some outdoor fun.
The Dallas Foundation offers a walking tour on a journey of 30 amazing public sculptures in downtown Dallas. Pets are allowed, and we are sure Max will be very interested in these three-dimensional structures. He’s a very curious canine by nature. For a taste of the old west with Max, we’ll be taking a visit to Stockyards National Historic District.
