Whispering Pines TNW MUD PARK PET-WALKING REMINDERS The Terranova West MUD Park was developed to be used by our local residents and the park is used for many sporting and leisure activities. However, the park is not a “dog run.” For clarification purposes, the Harris County Texas Animal Regulation Section 4 A states: "All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat, or to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.” Therefore, residents are welcome to walk your pet in the Terranova West MUD Park. However, all dogs must be on a leash at all times. There are two "Doggie Pot" stations in the park. For the health and safety of our residents, please clean up after your pet. Signs are posted in the park reminding residents dogs must be on a leash and to clean up after your pet. Your neighbors appreciate your cooperation. Help us keep the park a great place for all our residents to enjoy! Regards, Tom Lovell, Vice President, Terranova West Municipal Utility District
