We thoroughly enjoyed our stop to this quiet park on our way from Bozeman to Billings. We had time this day in our schedule for a fairly leisurely drive, and enjoyed making stops along the way. I found it in our tour book and we decided to stop by and we were glad we did. While the book said "thousands" of prairie dogs would be popping up out of their holes, we found it to be more like "dozens" but it was still good fun and the kids really liked it. We weren't too far from them, but binoculars helped, and I believe we made to much noise at first. Enter quietly!

I grew up in Lubbock and can remember this place as a kid. 3rd or 4th grade we took a field trip only remembered this place after taking a joy ride seeing our old neighborhood.
This place is where you would want to take not only kids but the young at heart. Was a pleasure to see with my wife and older sister.

A city park in the not so good area of town, there are signs directing you to Prairie Dog Town. It really is a concrete wall with one shaded area to watch these playful little critters. You can get pretty close to them for some cute pics, and they are becoming more used to humans, cute poses aren't hard to find. Not much here for the adults, but kids should find this amazing(I did!!). This park offers a lot in the line of tables,etc.,so a picnic and some sunscreen could make for the perfect afternoon out in Lubbock!

There is an actual praire dog sanctuary. The little critters are soooo cute. We saw many small babies running around and playing. This trip only takes 15 or 20 minutes to enjoy.

The prairie dogs are cute, especially if they are "talking," but otherwise there's not much to see here. Great for little kids but don't go out of your way.
