12 South is a trendy and popular neighborhood located in southern Nashville, Tennessee. Equally popular with both tourists and locals, 12 South is home to a famous ice cream store, a trendy doughnut store, several must-try coffee shops, a few sit-down restaurants with popular happy hours, and actress Reese Witherspoon's famous boutique and clothing line, Draper James.

Beyond being a popular destination for food and shopping, 12 South also has quite a few residential areas, particularly surrounding 12th Avenue South, the street. These spaces are largely composed of standalone, single-family homes, many of which are newly renovated or rentals for local college students. However, there are a few apartment-style residential halls for Belmont students located in the northwest part of the neighborhood.

Nashville, including 12 South, should often have perfect weather for walking your pup and exploring Music City, U.S.A. You will experience four distinct seasons and even the winter months shouldn't be too harsh with the exception of the large snowfall and icy conditions the city experiences every few years.

Walking around 12 South can be both exciting and relaxing for both you and your pup! Most of the neighborhood is residential in nature, so there should be some quieter streets for you and your pup to explore. These are great options if you are looking for a more relaxing, leisurely walk. 

However, if you need more excitement or people watching, the commercial areas have plenty of local restaurants and boutiques that will have water bowls - and sometimes even treats! - out on the sidewalks for your pup to enjoy. 

The boundaries of 12 South include Wedgewood Avenue to the north, 10th Avenue South and 9th Avenue South to the east, Kirkwood Avenue and Gale Lane to the south, and Belmont Boulevard and 15th Avenue South to the west. 12th Avenue South, running directly down the middle of the neighborhood, is home to many of the commercial spaces in the neighborhood and will likely be more trafficked, both by vehicles and pedestrians, than surrounding residential streets.

Unfortunately, there is only one greenway located in the 12 South neighborhood. Sevier Park, located in the southeast corner of the region, is home to some manicured green spaces, a new community center, and the historic Sunnyside Mansion which was originally built in the late 1700s. Pups are welcomed in Sevier Park, but they must be leashed at all times! 

Thankfully, there are several other parks within walking distance of the 12 South neighborhood. Immediately south of this neighborhood, Gale Lane Community Park is a lovely public park with a few walking and running trails. The Four Forty Greenway trail, which runs through the area, also connects to a few other local parks. 

Other local greenways include Battle of Nashville Monument Park, Battlemont Park, St. Bernard Park, Fannies Mae Dees Park, Reservoir Park, and Edgehill Community Memorial Garden. The nearest dog park is three miles to the northwest in the popular Cenntennial Park.
