Don’t forget to pack a picnic. This park is an ideal place to spend an afternoon with friends and family alike. Whether you have a dog or not, you will find that the following parks offer plenty of escape from everyday life. This month, we are showcasing some of our favorite parks that not only welcome dogs to roam free they are also perfect spots for a picnic in the shade or morning stroll. All of which are just a short drive from our apartments in El Paso.
With one of the region’s largest parks to play with your pup, Argal Park has open space and fenced-in areas for dogs of all shapes and sizes. There’s also a real nice walking path that wanders through the park.
Kids love it too as there is a nice, shaded play area with slides, swings, and then some!
