Our Pick: Phil Hardberger Park, 8400 NW Military Hwy., (210) 207-3284
For us, the off-leash dog parks at Phil Hardberger Park are just a tiny portion of what makes this sprawling 311-acre park special. But for the pooches, behind those double-entry gates lies paradise. Both fenced-off areas for small and large dogs include space for your pup to run (or sniff the perimeter, if that’s what your dog’s into) in a huge, wooded area. Plus there are platforms and props for your pup to play around on. Hardberger also offers those dog-friendly water fountains and plenty of shade to keep you cool during the summer scorchers. Don’t let Fido play too hard, though – you’ll still want to take a walk around the park’s 1.8-mile Savanna Loop Trail.
