Best Apartments for Dogs in New Orleans

When you have a dog, they’re part of the family — and just as you want the very best space for yourself and loved ones, you also want a space ideal for your four-legged friend.

1st Lake Properties is a pet-friendly company with thousands of apartments ideal for dogs across Greater New Orleans. However, a few of our properties are especially suited to pups for their proximity to sprawling outdoor spaces like Lafreniere Park.

Even better, Bella Ridge has a dog park called Bella Bark right on the premises that’s ideal for you and your dog.

Apartments with Proximity to Lafreniere Park

Several of our Metairie apartment communities like Sandpiper, Parktowne, Boardwalk, and Breakers are all just a short distance from Lafreniere Park. This sprawling green space in Metairie features a dog park called Bark Park, a 5-acre space just for pups. The park is open on Tuesdays through Sundays from 7 a.m. until dusk. On Mondays, the park opens at 1 p.m. and remains open through dusk. Separated into two sub-parks — one for large dogs and one for dogs under 22 pounds — Bark Park features agility courses and scenic views.
