Relatives to squirrels; cute
Jun 2021
Want to see lots and lots of blacktail prairie dogs? This is the place for you. Get up and close, but don’t expect to feed or handle them. Watch with your eyes how these relatives of squirrels dig their holes leading to their homes. Free parking.

Cute prairie dogs everywhere!
May 2021 • Friends
Had no idea what to expect. Drove up to the park and as soon as we got out of the car, we could see them everywhere! They’re very cute and friendly. There is a short wall around the field they live in. You have to watch them from behind the wall. There were some people there feeding them carrots. Glad we took the time to stop and see this.

Precious!!!

These critters were so much fun to watch. We drove around the circle and saw an entire family of prairie dogs coming out of their hole. We watched the cuties scamper around the area for several minutes. We enjoyed our visit to this attraction in Amarillo. Kids would love this site!!!

So fun to feed the prairie dogs!
Apr 2021
I wasn't expecting such an interactive experience. We didn't have any food, but someone offered us a handful of small spinach leaves. The prairie dogs were so cute and cautiously took the spinach out of our hands. I thought we would be there for 5 minutes, but ended up staying almost a 1/2 hour. Definitely bring food.

Fun little animals
Mar 2021 • Family
Our son really enjoyed seeing the prairie dogs. There are several in the enclosure, but also all around as they have burrowed into the parking lot, walking trails and driving range. People bring vegetables to feed them. There isn’t any sitting space.

Cute little buggers. We fed them carrots and watermelon.
We pulled out our chairs and sat for a couple hours.
Nice place.

Fun place to watch prairie dogs
Sep 2020
Although the enclosure could use some repair we had a great time watching the prairie dogs. They were quite entertaining to us.

perfect stop for travelers with children
Sep 2020
this would be an incredible stop for people travelling with kids, We stopped after being told about it by a co-worker who grew up in the area. It was really neat. a herd of Prairie dogs that have been preserved by the city of Lubbock since 1934 I think it was. you can feed them or the city or someone had thrown out several lettuce leaves while we were there. They talk to each other and fight over the food. there are a few courageous ones who have burrowed out of the enclosure so be careful when you drive up!

Free Activity - You Cant Beat That!
Aug 2020
This is a nondescript place but the little Prairie Dogs are cute to watch as they pop up out of their tunnel system and scamper around. Watched a few people feeding a few but we elected to steer clear of that due to concerns about rodent diseases. None the less, visiting some of our family who now lives in Lubbock, it was on our "bucket list" to see a Prairie Dog and we saw plenty! One in our party has lived in Lubbock for 12 years and had never visited before! Interesting insights on the information board that tells the story of how Prairie Dog Town started. It's free so you can not beat that and the little critters are darn cute!
