“Prairie Dog Town is boring.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is the most ridiculous, boring, thing you have ever seen. There are much better things to do in Lubbock, like Buddy Holly center, Silent Wings museum, Science Spectrum, etc. anything but Prairie Dog Town.

“Prairie Dog Town is the worst that Lubbock has to offer”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Stupid wasteland--a sad ghetto for critters. Don't waste your time, go to the windmill museum instead.

“Free Entertainment with Prairie Dogs as the Stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

I loved watching these cute little animals and was impressed there is no fee to enter the park which in itself is worth visiting. This is not a glamourised zoo attraction. It is simply an area that has been left for the wildlife to be observed in their natural habitat. A break from the hustle and bustle of the town. Definitely worth seeing if you enjoy wildlife.

“Visit the Prairie Dogs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

I hadn't really seen prairie dogs until I came to Lubbock. These little guys have a whole field set aside for them in Lubbock and you can come and watch them go in one hole and come out another. The "Prairie Dog" town is set in a park, so you can exercise or let your kids enjoy the park when you are done. It's fun to take photographs and watch these creatures' activities.

“Cute rodents ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

What else can I add? Bring something for them to eat if you want them to get close and be patient. The birds know the drill too so they will rake as much as they can get. If you stay right of the ball fields you'll find it. If you are at the golf course you are on the wrong side of the park.
