LeashFree2

The Leash Free Zone is located within Town East Park
2724 N Town East Blvd.

While the Leash Free Zone is self-regulated, rules are posted to provide guidance for those entering. Owners are reminded they are responsible for the actions of their pets.

The Leash Free Zone is comprised of two separate areas totaling 30,000 square feet. 
The small dog area is specifically for canines weighing less than thirty pounds. 
The large dog area welcomes dogs of all sizes

Mesquite’s Leash Free Zone competes for prize funds   



Beneful brand dog food, in cooperation with Wal-Mart, is sponsoring a contest for communities with dog parks. Mesquite’s Leash Free Zone is one out of seven dog parks from across the country with a chance to win a prize package worth $30,000 to be used for enhancements to the area.  

The Leash Free Zone does not yet feature any typical dog park amenities, it’s got plenty of room to grow and this contest is the perfect opportunity to help.  

The winning community will be determined by having the most votes. A vote is counted when you post on Twitter and Instagram with #BenefulDogPark and #Dallas.

VOTE HERE

Voting starts September 15 and runs until 11:59 p.m. on November 1, 2016. Six additional cities are in the running; Atlanta, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Oklahoma City and Raleigh. 

An interactive map is provided to show which city is leading the race. Votes are accepted daily, vote often to help Mesquite win!
