Lakewood Park recently opened in the city of Leander and we decided to check it out in the evening. It’s really nice! There’s a lot to do there, including fishing, kayaking, a skate park, a splash pad, walking trails, and a dog park with three enclosed areas.
We took Lani there and she really enjoyed the walk and the dog park. She doesn’t see a lot of other dogs (our fault), but she did great! There was only one close encounter with two other dogs, who were sniffing her, but Lani just had a nervous growl and we led her away (she was still on-leash).
There weren’t a lot of people there, so when one of the dog enclosures was empty, we let Lani roam free off her leash. She was kind of tired at that point so she just explored slowly, and she was so good… every time I told her to come, she came straight to me. 😀
Besides having fun with Lani, Koa and I threw the baseball for 20 minutes or so while Mariko and Lani strolled around the park. We chatted with a fisherman who was packing up, and he said it was rare to see people throwing a baseball at the park, but as a former high school baseball player, he was happy to see us playing.
All-in-all, it was a good, socially-distanced evening!
