“Millie Bush is the best dog park I've ever visited. It has all the necessary "stuff;" that is, it's securely double-gated, has a separate area for dogs who weigh <20 lbs., plentiful garbage cans and waste-disposal bags, &c. Millie Bush also has three ponds (two in the big-dog area and one for the little guys), "fire hydrants" a-plenty, and really nice washing stations if you want to give your pup a bath before heading home. It's wonderful to see water-oriented dogs splashing in the pools after their toys (or just because.) Since even the small dogs get a pond I've even seen tiny toy poodles getting in on the action, which is just delightful. There are also benches for the humans and a nice covered area for those hot, bright Houston days. It can get pretty muddy at Millie when it's been raining hard but that's never been a deterrant for us. (The website says: "Millie Bush Bark Park is on Federal land used as a reservoir which is intended to hold large amounts of flood water when needed. Lucky for us, it doesn't flood often to this extent, however, when it does the park may be flooded for 2 to 3 weeks.") What I love best about Millie is the size (there's enough room to run) and the variety of dogs and people who are always there. I've had some great conversations and seen examples of breeds I'd only read about before. (I've also met some charming mutts. Like I said, great variety.) The location is beautiful and I wouldn't want it anywhere else but it is pretty far away from everything. Totally worth it, though.”

great place to play!


I love coming to this park! Plenty of room to run and 2 different pools for me to swim in. I have made many friends here and cant wait to go again. I wish there was a place for my daddy to go to the bathroom sometimes I see him doing the potty dance and I know it means we have to go. Other than that you couldnt ask for more!

Millie Bush Bark Park


This place was the first BIG dog park of its kind in Houston and it is the bomb. We love it. I am let off their leash at the gate and I go straight for the pond, then a hearty game of "chase me, chase me" and then about an hour of playing fetch in the water. A weekend ritual! They do need to but a starbucks next door though...and some human bathrooms!
