Houston Arboretum & Nature Center
With 5 miles of walking pathways that meander through forest, meadow, and wetland ecosystems, the 155-acre nature sanctuary at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center is dog-friendly. Please observe all local laws, such as keeping your dog on a leash at all times and picking up after it when you visit the Arboretum. The trails must be kept dog-free (no swimming in the ponds). Only the tiled portions of the lobby are dog-friendly. Consider going on a self-guided Habitat Walk. Each journey passes one of the informative Field Stations and includes some of their Naturalists’ favourite sites, such as ponds teeming with animals, trees with intriguing tales, insect houses, and other amusing places of interest.
