Mickey's Dog Park is now open! Part of the Killeen Community Center Complex, the pooch park sits on the northwest corner of Veterans Memorial Boulevard and WS Young Drive. The park is open daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Two acres of fenced play space separated for large and small dogs gives plenty of room for pups to shed their leashes and run. Dogs will find all sorts of fun amenities like hound hurdles, teeter totters, jumps and tunnels while pup parents can enjoy covered pavilions, benches and landscaping. Give Fido some room to run, and bring him to the dog park!
Visit the Mickey's Dog Park webpage for more information and park rules.

The City of Killeen has a very extensive Parks and Recreation program.
On W.S. Young Drive, we offer athletics fields, where we host regional and national tournaments and the Community Center, which is a multi purpose facility with gym, meeting rooms and outdoors event area. Newly added is Mickey's Dog Park featuring two acres of pup amenities.
On Stan Schlueter Loop we have the Family Recreation Center and Aquatics Center at Lions Club Park. The second floor weight room at the Family Recreation Center is called the Tommie Harris Fitness Center, as a tribute to the NFL Player, who donated the gym equipment. Tommie Harris, who has played for the Chicago Bears and presently is a DT for the San Diego Chargers (player profile), was raised in Killeen, and went to C.E. Ellison High School. We are very grateful for his generous gift and proud to honor his name in this manner.
On Roy Reynolds, you will find the Stonetree Golf Course. It was built in 1970 but was completely renovated in 2005. Open to the public, we hold 25-30 annual golf tournaments and host some of the major area fundraisers. The course is laid out over rolling terrain with a wide variety of trees and several small lakes with fountains.
