I love taking my 2 basset hounds to this park. They love to chase the squirrels and meet other people. I was so glad they added the full functioning restrooms in the park. No more having to go to the restroom in the library. Only bad thing is, some people are bringing aggressive dogs to the park. My girl basset was severely attacked last May and she had to end up going to a vet for treatment. There is also an older gentleman with 2 fawn boxers, one with a long tail, one with a short tail. The one with the long tail has been showing aggression towards other dogs and the owner doesn't seem to do much about her. Wish there was a way to do something about these irresponsible owners.

Guilty!

Just what I thought.. Guilty party.. Babies and children under 10 are not allowed in the Large Dog area. You do not wait until a problem arises. You do not allow kids to approach strange dogs. My German Shepherd will bite small children. You child has been lucky not to be there when I have been there. I will make sure I bring my Cam for now on after reading this to have ready at all times.. Recording the rules and recording children under age. No one should have to approach you to leave. There is a park in you can in that you and your children are welcomed at but it is not safe for the Large Dog area. Do not chance it. I love my kids too much to do such a thing. You should also. Please FOLLOW RULES.. It's a DOG PARK for DOGS. Thank You :)

Seriously?

Quite Rude of you don't you think? A valid statement was made on the Park rules on a DOG PARK and you're telling someone who is bringing their Dogs to the DOG PARK they can take their dogs somewhere else because Kids under age are there????

Been meaning to take my dogs here for some time. Quite a drive for me as i live in Fulshear. My dogs don't have an issue with space just opportunities to socialize. I was impressed with the overall cleanliness of the park, looks like it visitted mostly by responsible people, my Border Collie loved the pond once she got used to it, my Peke wasn't so happy with it, but she makes strange of new things, there was an areas for smaller dogs that I didn't take advantage of this time with the Peke, all of the other dogs were generally well behaved with owners keeping them under control even when off leash. All in all my dogs seemed to enjoy the experience, I'll definately give it another visit soon.

The comments below are really shocking to me!

First of all, we love this park!! The people are great here and the dogs are very friendly for the most part. I do have a BIG problem with the children coming in the park that are under 10 as well. My dog jumped on one and you would have thought that parent was going to get the firing squad out! Their kids should not have even entered the gates according to the posted rules!! There is a reason that children under 10 aren't supposed to be in there--- Not all dogs are great with kids and they aren't on a leash.. It could actually be a horrible situation for an unsuspecting child. It's the DOG'S park and there is one right next door that allows dogs and children of all ages.

I would give this park 5 stars if they could find a way to install a better pump/filtering system for the pond- it can get pretty bad at times.

LOVE THIS PARK

I am surprised that someone would complain about this park.. one of the things that was so nice about it was that i could bring my kids and they would play with the other dogs as well as ours.. and also that i could bring the stroller in and walk or just relax.. haven't had any issues with any dog being aggressive towards the kids or the baby.. If your afraid to say something to someone..like "my dogs aren't so kid friendly, or i dont want him to knock him over" then dont complain.. everyone i've met who goes there is curteous and willing to watch there pet. I do think it would be GREAT to have an agility course there.. would help to train my crazy pup

This place needs rule enforcement

This is a lovely park where my pups should be free and I am very angry. Apparently rules are NOT enforced. (Who enforces these?)There were several people who thought they could break the rules.

One couple enjoyed a Subway lunch on a park bench, fortunately none of the dogs around were of the begging type and all had a good breakfast!

Next were the baby strollers and dogs having exotic enticing smells. Mom's please don't do this. We left that area only to have a 5 year old girl think our puppies were cute (and they are!) When she stood and petted them no problem, but when she squat down to hug them she was quickly overwhelmed by their weight and began to panic. We took the pups and Mom calmed the little girl. My pups are 9 mos old and have no children close to them. The age for children at the park is 10. I understand that many smaller kids can handle dogs, I'm OK with that, but please let my dogs be dogs and play with dogs! WE DON"T WANT TO PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS!

My dogs love this place. I would like it a little better if it had a few more benches. I have met some really friendly people and dogs here.

Katy Dog Park - wishing for agility equipment
4

Went to the park for the first time last week-end. Very nice and much land for dogs to run. Pond is great for the water loving breeds. Will go again. Only thing I could wish for would be an agility course for the dogs like some tire jumps, weave poles, ramps, tunnels and chutes.

I love bringing my dog to this park! I live across the street from it so I don't even have to get in the car. It's good exercise for the both of us. I wonder, though, how long is the trail?

Wonderful off leash dog

Wonderful off leash dog park. We have been bringing our aussie shepherd puppy since he was 4 months old. He is 9 months old and we have met terrific people and great playmates for our dog.

Upgrades.

More benches have been added. Also, more trash cans with bag stations have been added. Still plenty of open space. Lots of trees and plenty of squirrel's to chase.

This park is great. We also

This park is great. We also love the fact that this option is now available in Katy. The Yorkies and Labs all love the pond and fields to play in. I HIGHLY recommend this if you are in the area.

We thought the park was awesome! Very clean! Not as crowded as other parks, for sure! We will definately go again! Our two Dogs loved it, and I would also like to add how clean the water is! Although I do agree with the other person on that you need more benches around the pond.

The dog park in Katy is great. There are 5 comfortable metal benches, a nice swimming pond, a covered dog washing area, a walking track, 4 large trash bins with courtesy "waste bags", and ample running room for your furry friend. Usually there are also plenty of potential new friends for your dog to meet and run around with, not to mention a plethora of squirrels to be chased up the numerous trees. Most of the time the people that frequent this park are very friendly, but as with anywhere these days you will find a bad apple (usually the owner, not the dog) from time to time. I highly recommend this park.

Katy Dog Park

This dog park is very relaxing and very nice to go to. It is right next to the library so you can grab a book and read while your dog is having fun too. The people that go are really nice as well too. It could use a few benches next to the pond though but other than that it is a great park. I am so glad there is finally one in Katy, so I don't have to go clear to houston take take my dog to the park.
