Dog lovers in the Little Rock, AR are lucky in that we have a wide range of places to take our dogs whether that is an designated dog park or human park. Here is a list of dog spots in Little Rock (and a few outside the city, too!) Which is your favorite?
Paws Park at Murray : It was the first fenced off-leash park for our furry friends featuring 2 acres of fenced in play space for large dogs and 1/2 an acre for smaller dogs, and even has a secure area for entering and exiting the park, because let’s be honest, that is the most stressful part! There are fountains, benches, trash cans, and restrooms. Oh, and big shade trees for those really sunny and hot Little Rock days. This dog park is apart of the larger Rebsaman Park, Arkansas River Trail system, and walk-able to the Big Dam Bridge.
MacArthur Dog Park : Put this dog park on your mid day stop since it’s nestled in the heart of downtown Little Rock and surrounded by the MacArthur Park. On a 2 acre lot, this park has a double gate entrance, 5ft fence and a separate area for small dogs. Your dog will love the rocks and watering stations. Close by is the Arkansas Arts Center, historic buildings, restaurants, and shopping.
Barks and Rec @ Burns Park: One of the smaller dog parks compared to the ones above but located within a much larger park. This is a gated off-leash dog park located in North Little Rock with space for both large and small dogs to play. This is a great area for the whole family as there are multiple playgrounds, trails, a disc golf course, and sports complex open to the public. Dogs outside of the dog park mush be leashed.
Pinnacle Mountain Trails & Park: Pinnacle Mountain is an iconic spot in Little Rock. It is the biggest ‘mountain’ that we have. This park spreads over 2300 acreas that is home to flora and fauna, numerous trails, pavilions, camping spots, playgrounds and much more. A fun fact is that the first settlers called the mountain “Mamelle”, French for breast-shaped hill and *I believe* the name didn’t change until the 1970s. Perfect outdoor hike for your dog with breathtaking views, sunrises, and sunsets.
