Austin is incredibly dog-friendly and full of parks, restaurants, and trails that welcome pet owners and their furry friends. We’ve gathered a list of our favorite dog-friendly spots to spend outside in Austin.

Zilker Park

Austin’s most iconic park is also one of the city’s most dog-friendly spots. Enjoy acres of sprawling land where your dog can happily run free off-leash. We love to pack a picnic and a tennis ball and lounge in the grass while our dog plays fetch and runs with the other visiting pups. 

Red Bud Isle

West-Austin’s hidden gem, Red Bud Isle is the perfect spot for adventure-loving dogs. The off-leash park gives your dog the opportunity to run free and enjoy a short walking trail as well as swim in the lake. Although it’s a great place to cool off on hot days, be sure to check that the algae levels are safe before bringing your dog. 

June’s All Day 

A coveted South Congress patio, June’s All Day is a great spot for well-mannered dogs to curl up and people watch. The chic restaurant is loved by people and dogs alike and offers the perfect hideaway with misting fans in the summer months and overhead heaters for chillier days.

Sour Duck 

Located in East Austin, Sour Duck is a great restaurant and bar for a casual meal with your family and dog. The family-style picnic benches lend itself to its laid back atmosphere, making it a great place for new dog owners to bring feisty puppies learning manners and getting accustomed to restaurant outings. 

Norwood Dog Park

Located off Riverside and I-35, Norwood is not as glamourous as other dog-friendly locations throughout the city. However, this straightforward park offers all your dog needs to have a great time. Maintained by the City of Austin, the park offers a watering station, doggie bags, and scattered seating for owners.
