“Quick, fun stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

This is a big area full of prairie dogs that are fun to watch. Don't plan more than 10-15 minutes of entertainment, but there are a couple parks attached that pretty nice.

“DON'T GO”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Having grown up in Lubbock the Prairie Dog Town is nothing but a concrete wall about 3 feet high surrounding an area of prairie dogs. This is located next to a city golf course so you will also see many little white round things laying within the walls as well. It is embarrassing when I see that Lubbock is advertising this little square block. There are much larger natural areas of prairie dogs located just outside the city Loop 289 for viewing. Please do not come to Lubbock to see this attraction. Lubbock has much better things to see!

“Prairie Dog Town is boring.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 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 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 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 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 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.
