They also work to help people to reduce overpopulation of unwanted pets. There are two locations: Levander Loop just east of downtown and on ResearchBlvd./HWY-183 at Ohlen Road.

While well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome in almost all of our parks, these parks are specifically geared to dogs and dog owners. for example they have more "Pick up the Poop Stations", and watering areas for your dogs. There are some "leash free" parks around town and this is a great place to find them!
