Best Place to Walk Your Dog - 2008
The Unofficial Dog Park at Allen Parkway and Studemont
Although not an officially recognized dog park, this is one of the most popular spots for people and their pooches. It features tons of open, flat space for walking, running and playing fetch. There are woodsy areas for the more inquisitive canines, and it?s right on Buffalo Bayou, perfect for swimming or a quick cool-down. It?s situated at the bottom of a hill, a good ways away from the road, so you don?t have to worry about Fluffy wandering into traffic. And, perhaps most importantly, the folks who use this park are pretty darn good at picking up after their dogs. So remember to bring a bag — or two.
