Park
“They are so cute ! Attraction at Mackenzie Park featuring prairie dogs & interpretive signage since 1935.  Prairie Dog Town is simply a small field full of prairie dogs, but it offers unlimited cuteness and it's hugely popular with visitors. It's also free. A very low wall surrounds the main area, where you can see dozens of the little fellows at any given moment, but the prairie dogs run freely all over the area; along the entrance road, in the parking area, even sitting on the fence. They go about their business, with little regard for visitors standing just a few feet away. You can watch them playing or hanging out by their holes, standing up on their back legs, peeping loudly, and then falling over in dramatic fashion.Prairie Dog Town is one of the top five most visited attractions in Lubbock.”
