Welcome to Fort Woof, Fort Worth’s first fenced off-leash dog park!

Fort Woof is Fort Worth’s first off-leash dog park, an ideal place for dogs and their owners to have fun. Fort Woof has two large fenced areas for dogs to roam, a “large dog” side for dogs 40 pounds and more and a separate “small dog” side for dogs weighing less than 40 pounds. Each area has picnic tables (no food of any type in the park, please) and park benches for humans, a watering station for both humans and dogs, and multiple poop-disposal locations, each with a supply of plastic bags (for humans to use when cleaning up after their dogs, as is required by the rules ).
