Universal City Dog Park

Welcome to Universal City Dog Park!


The Universal City Dog Park opened to the public on June 4, 2011 and was an instant success. The Universal City Dog Park is a place for dog owners to let their pets legally run free without a leash. The 1.3 acre park is located directly next to the Universal City Animal Care and Control Facility at 134 Athenian Drive.

The park features a separate play area for large dogs and for small dogs. Each play area has waste collection and disposal facilities, water stations on concrete pads as well as drinking fountains. To help keep you cool during those hot Texas days there are three shade structures with picnic benches located throughout the park.
