City earns recognition for Fort Woof Park by earning the title of "Second Best Dog Park in America".


Yet again Fort Worth demonstrates its knack at doing whatever it does right.

Don't know which city earned the recognition of Best Dog Park; but I am guessing that Fort Worth is the Best in Texas!

Keep "Dogtown, Texas" folksy!

But now this leads me to wonder whether Fort Worth really is a dog-friendly city?
Here are some questions; see how we rate :huh: :

man, i'd hate to be the one to tell him that Houston's Millie Bush Bark Park was ranked #1... but at least it's some consolation knowing that the great state of Texas has the top two!

Well kudos to Houston too! We can still claim title as "Best in the Metroplex!"

Keep Fort Worth folksy!

They put on the east side to get people to come to the east side and use a great park!

Gateway is indeed a great park... big, too. Lots of wooded bike trails, lots of soccer games, but water is a challenge. Maybe someone can help me find another solution, but I rode my bike to the park and the only place to refill my water bottles was... Fort Woof! :D
I had to go to the doggie drinking fountain to get some H2O. Which was alright since I like dogs. But maybe someone has found another source? Forget the Trinity, though, I'm not drinking out of that. ;)

My favorite doggie park is in Redondo Beach, CA. Them dogs have it good there.

Forget the Seis Banderas, or Sea World, or the Texas Stadium fo dat matter.

Not worrying about preservationism and a mortgage, or property taxes.

Number 2!?! Fort Woof was rated numer 1 in a DogFancy poll a few years back. And yes, come to the Eastside, we have cookies.

We have a lot of old threads, but that's why they aren't deleted. You can always go back and read some of the old posts.

..but we sure need to figure out a way to tweak the search algorithms, finding "old" yet relevant is still hit and miss.
