Take a break from area attractions with man’s best friend in a quaint green space along the Houston International Promenade at EaDog Park.
With the aftermath of Harvey still being felt at attractions near Buffalo Bayou Park, the city’s more familiar Johnny Steele Dog Park will be closed until further notice.
Don’t fret. We’ve got you covered with this nearby, safe alternative.
Located just east of Downtown‘s towering skyscrapers in EaDo along the Houston International Promenade, the fittingly named EaDog Park is the perfect addition to an area brimming with attractions –and the next step for the five-block abandoned street-turned-park.
Already known for its bar, brewery, and arts community, the park offers dog-owners a quiet place to collect their thoughts and break from the nearby hustle and bustle.
4-legged friends can enjoy amenities which include, mulch play areas for both large and small dogs, fire hydrants and more, while their human companions can make use of the soon-to-be shaded bench areas and convenient bike racks.
Area Art & Libations
If you work up a sweat in the park, thirsty visitors can feel free to pop into the nearby 8th Wonder Brewery, one of the quickest growing and celebrated craft beer spots in all of Houston.
Inside their front doors, you’ll find photographs and memorabilia of the historic Astrodome adorning the walls, along with customized jerseys from each of the city’s sports franchises.
If you’re looking for the perfect photo-op, guests can check out two of famed sculptor, David Adickes’ prized works, which are both visible from the promenade/EaDog Park.
Get a load of the iconic We Love Houston Sign at their new location just outside of the brewery or check out Adickes’ humongous homage to the Fab 4 inside the brewery’s walls, with his giant Beatles Sculptures.
Before You Visit
The park is open to the public daily from 7am to 8pm with plenty of parking available nearby.
Owners should note that dogs are required to be leashed when not in the designated play areas.
