our mission

To establish a fenced-in, off-leash dog park where well-behaved canines and citizens can exercise and socialize in a clean safe environment without endangering or annoying people, property or wildlife; to develop a beautiful, well-maintained space, open to all dog lovers and friends who are willing to uphold the park's rules and restrictions; to view this park as a community project, in partnership with the city of Corpus Christi, designed to satisfy the neeeds of dog-owners and non-dog owners alike.

While our immediate goal is to raise funds to create, maintain and improve a spacious off-leash dog park on Padre Island, we also hope to make this park more than just a fenced off field.


We are committed to working with the public and local officials to ensure that the park is a benefit to everyone and to educate them about dog-related issues and the value of off-leash recreation.


We seek respectful, enlightened co-existence with other park users through properly supervising and maintaining appropriate conduct of dogs off-leash.


We do not see our function ending with the implementation of an off-leash dog park for our community; we intend to participate in monitoring the facility for cleanliness and safety, hosting events to educate the general public on a variety of dog related topics from dog park etiquette to behavioral issues, and managing ongoing maintenance through regular volunteer efforts as well as professional services.
