Dog Park Opens at Montrose & Allen Parkway

Johnny Steele Dog Park Opening Celebration
Every dog has its day and that day is coming in January 2015! The “official” dog park in Buffalo Bayou Park, located at Allen Parkway and Montrose Boulevard/Studemont, will open to the public on January 17, 2015. Owners and their four-legged friends will enjoy new features including large and small dog ponds, dog washing areas and shade structures. For the public celebration, there will be an array of family-friendly and animal-friendly activities such as a dog “kissing booth,” dog food samples, doggie lounge area, on-site pet adoptions, giveaways and more!

A group of thoughtful and caring donors joined together to name the dog park in honor of their good friend Johnny Steele, whose name is synonymous with elegance and beauty as witnessed by the civic spaces and private gardens he has designed throughout the city and state. Johnny has been a talented and enthusiastic volunteer for Buffalo Bayou Partnership for many years.

The Johnny Steele Dog Park is part of the $58 million Buffalo Bayou Park – Shepherd to Sabine project underway under the leadership of Buffalo Bayou Partnership. The project includes park improvements including the addition of trails, enhancements at Eleanor Tinsley Park, destinations like The Water Works and Lost Lake, nature play area, lighting, and amenities such as kayak and bike rentals and overall improvements to the park’s landscape. Some elements of the park improvements have been completed including pedestrian bridges at Jackson Hill and the Police Memorial, some asphalt trails on the north and south sides of the bayou, lawns at Eleanor Tinsley Park and some trail lighting. The entire project is to be complete in mid-2015.
