The newly renovated White Rock Lake Dog Park officially reopened Saturday, June 6, 2015.  The 3-acre "off-leash" dog park, is 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.
