The DOG PARK at White Rock Lake
is Dallas' FIRST City Dog Park 
and was established in June 2001
Hours are 5 am to 11 pm


The Park will be CLOSED for maintenance on Monday, 7/3 - the Dog Park is scheduled to be open on Tuesday.
If the Park experiences heavy rain, the park may be closed on Tuesday. Please be mindful that after a rain, the park needs to dry out or it will experience heavy damage.

The Dog Park will always be closed the day following a medium to heavy rain. Note that on Mondays, the Dog Park is closed for maintenance. 

It has been brought to our attention that various individuals are coming to the park with more than 3 dogs at a time.

The rules state that any individual cannot come in with more than 3 dogs at a time.

This applies to DOG WALKERS - if there is a problem there is no way one person can control the situation. BE SAFE.

The Dog Park is a very heavily used and grassy areas need to dry out after rains or turf will be damaged.

As always, remember to be CORDIAL and PICK UP AFTER YOU PET.


In order for the City of Dallas to takes any problems at the Dog Park seriously, PLEASE report any incident of aggressive dogs or threats to 911.

Less serious issues such as unneutered or unsterilized dogs, loose dogs or dogs without tags, please call 311.

If the City doesn't know about it, they can't fix it !!!

  The Mockingbird Dog Park was voted the "Best Dog Park" in Dallas in 2015 .....

Let's do it again !!!! 


NO dogs under 6 months of age. No UNSTERILIZED dogs in either park.
No UNVACCINATED dogs at the park. Do not bring food/treats into the park.  

Puppies who have not had all three rounds of their puppy boosters are NOT protected against contagious viruses like PARVO, DISTEMPER, HEPATITIS and LEPTOSPIROSIS. They can also contract intestinal parasites if they are not on a Heartworm preventative with a parasite preventative element. Their little bodies cannot fight these infections if they are exposed to these illnesses and parasites.

ALL dogs MUST BE STERILIZED or have a special permit/tag for an intact dog.
ALL dogs must be wearing tags including city registration.

There is a county wide outbreak of Parvo and Distemper.
Rabies has been found in area skunks as well.

DON'T RISK IT!! as well as risk the lives of the other animals at the park!

THE DOG PARK IS CLOSED EVERY MONDAY for cleaning. Note that "occasionally" it will be opened up after cleaning has concluded. Note that this time will vary greatly week to week.

Each Monday, maintenance staff performs routine maintenance (mowing, forestry, litter pick-up, refilling of pet waster bags, etc.), then reopens the dog park after the work is complete. There are cases that required an all-day closure on Mondays for enhanced maintenance. This is also the case when the park gets a lot of rain. The turf is in poor condition and requires additional maintenance by staff which includes irrigating, aerating and RESTING. Allowing dogs on over saturated turf will also result in damage to this turf.

After a heavy rain, count on the park being closed at least one additional day.
