T.C. Jester Park in northwest Houston offers a great place for your pups to get their exercise in and play with their furry friends. Divided into two sections, the park offers 31,000 square feet for large dogs and 16,000 for small ones. There are benches where dog owners can sit, and water hoses to keep dogs cool and hydrated. Trees provide ample shade and there's plenty of room for pooches to laze the afternoon away if they so desire. Or, if you want to take your hound for a run, hop on the paved or gravel paths that run along White Oak Bayou through the park.
