Since we have a deaf puppy we can’t let him play at some of the dog friendly parks in Austin as he needs to be confined by a fence, at least until he is trained sufficiently. So we are big fans of fenced dogs parks! There is one inBastrop and now one in Smithville, but for a change we like to drive in to Austin to the Dog Park on Riverside.
Located on Riverside Drive in Central Austin right next to I-35, the park is fenced and cross fenced, with water and poop stations, varying terrain, bushes, trees, it is a popular spot for Austonians to bring their dogs for some R & R. I am always amazed at how well all the dogs get along. I guess it is because it isn’t anyones “yard” to protect.
There are two sections one for small dogs and one for large dogs although we see some pretty “big” small dogs running around in the larger area.
Make sure to have your dog current on shots and in a collar. Dog Park etiquette says if your dog is bothering other dogs or dog owners it is time for you to head home. One day our pup was just fascinated with an older dog and just kept wanting to play so we packed it up and ended his play day when we couldn’t divert his attention.
All in all the Riverside Dog Park is an awesome place to take your dogs! Here are some pictures of the park I took when we were there. If you or anyone you know is looking for a Realtor who owns dogs and understands the needs of dog owners please contact me!
If you are a dog owner, live in Bastrop, and you want an opportunity to socialize your dog and give him or her an opportunity to get out and run and play in a safe environment – visit the Bastrop Dog Park. Located on Grady Tuck Drive it opened this last year.
Although I have a large fenced yard for my dog my husband and I like to take him to local dog parks. We love taking him in to the Austin dog park on Riverside but with time being an issue yesterday I took our deaf puppy Edsel to the Bastrop park.
It is conveniently located and has a large dog and small dog section. Built around some mature trees there is plenty of shade for dogs and owners with a couple of park benches. The area is all grass with crushed gravel walkways and there are water fountains for humans and canines both. There are “waste” receptacle too.
When we were there we had the park to ourselves for about fifteen minutes and then two cute small dogs and their owners showed up and the dogs could race and play along the divided fence line.
Bob Bryant park is nestled behind the Riverside Grove subdivision in Bastrop. It is a city maintained park that offers a playground, tennis court, basket ball court, baseball diamond, and a picnic area and restrooms. This is just one of the perks of living in Riverside Grove or The Enclave at Riverside Grove.
Bastrop has a beautiful river walk along the Colorado River between the Old Iron Bridge ( Chestnut/150 Loop and the current Hwy 71 bridge. It is about a one mile walk between the Ferry Park located on Water Street and Fishermans Park which is located at the end of Farm Street. This riverwalk was constructed around 1998 and dedicated to J. Pape. There is ample parking at Fisherman’s Park but limited parking along Water Street. During the Christmas Holiday the river walk is decorated and very pretty to walk at night but is always a great walk any time of the year!
