Lubbock's dog parks have been very popular for citizens and their furry friends. The Canyon Run Dog Park in Mackenzie Park has been very popular when the weather is nice outside and when the dogs are on their best behavior.

How popular has the Canyon Run Dog Park been? So popular that the City of Lubbock is closing the park to install new amenities. Three new picnic tables will be added to the large dog area of the park and the small dog area will get one new picnic table. In order to get the new picnic tables installed, the large dog area will be closed January 22-25th while the small dog area will have restricted use on January 24th and 25th.

Lubbock's second dog park, Hub City Unleashed located at 46th and Avenue U will remain open and citizens are encouraged to use that dog park during the installation of picnic tables at Canyon Run.
