Pawm Springs Dog Park Opens In Sugar Land!!!

We were soooooo excited to find that the new dog park that is part of the Sugar Land Memorial Park has opened this month. We have been waiting it seems forever since we first read about it being part of the city's new park system.
The new palm trees don't have much palms as of yet but it should look nice in a few months.

People started to arriving after 5:00 PM today making Sable happy but Lucy remained indifferent. All the dogs seem to get along so that makes for a happy time.

They have this sprinkling palm tree which I can't imagine any dogs liking but on a hot summer day you might find me standing under it's spray. This Corgi? kept chasing my girls. The water pond did not appear to be aerated and appeared muddy. Not sure how this issue is going to be addressed.

The park closes at sunset so we left a bit early. Sable is still limping from over doing it a week ago. The park is not as big as the Millie Bush Bark Park and only has one swimming hole. Not sure if they plan to add another or not. They do have the park divided for large and small dogs but everyone seem to want to gather around the water. It is dry as a bone now and there's not much grass yet and the paths are not paved or graveled. It's nice to see a park in the beginning stages though. The best aspect of it all is that it's only 5 miles from our home which is mucho better than the 15 mile trek to Millie Bush.

How lucky! That dog park looks amazing, I wish we had one here. (Two Chinese Pugs here and one large mix) Great photos!

Lucky Lucy and Sable having a dog park close to home now, and with a swimming hole too! Sounds like you can all relax now Joe has gone home.

You have some nutty trees there I must say.

My stupid Pee-Wee brother would love that place. Lots of water and what not. I hope that water therapy helped Sable feel better.
