Congressman Bill Archer Bark Park

Houston Dog ParkFrom throughout the greater Houston area, people are coming with their best four legged friends for one special attraction, the Congressman Bill Archer Bark Park. This Houston dog park is a fun place for a dog owner to take a dog walking during the day – especially on the weekends when the park is full of other dogs.

Located at 3201 State Highway 6 North, the Bark Park is 17 acres of fenced in fun for your dog to run off leash, right in Harris County. There are lots of walking trails, and even fire hydrants for when your pooch just has to go.

This very special dog park is friendly to all different types of dogs, with 3 of the 17 acres set aside as separate areas for smaller dogs to help keep them safe from any over excitement. There are also different sized ponds for your dogs to swim in, rinse areas to keep your buddy clean, and plenty of shade trees for dogs and owners alike. You can also find agility equipment so that your dog can have fun and exercise, and benches for when owners just can not keep up.

This highly regarded dog park is named after William Reynolds “Bill” Archer, Jr. Archer served in the Texas House of Representatives from 1967 to 1971. He later served as Texas Congressman in the United States House of Representatives for 30 years, from 1971 until 2001. During his last six years in office, Archer served as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.

The Congressman Bill Archer Bark Park is open for fun from 7am until dusk, and has restrooms available for owners for those longer visits. The park is named after Bill Archer, who was first elected to the House of Representatives in the year 1970.
