Shirley Road is a beautiful neighborhood settled along the northwest edge of Abilene, Texas. Although there is not much in the way of pet services in the area, there are several great grooming options that you may have to travel just a bit to reach. Aside from those, there is a distinct lack of amenities in the area that can help benefit a pet owner. Luckily, what Abilene lacks, it makes up for in wide open spaces, removal from the urban hustle and bustle of the more crowded city areas, and proximity to the nearby interstate which makes it easy to travel into the nearby downtown area, if necessary. 


Keep in mind that Abilene weather can be a bit warm, humid, and hard to manage, especially in the summer months. Be prepared to stay hydrated during your daily outings. The good news is that winters are much more mild and ideal for those who aren't fans of ice and sleet.

This area is very artificial, however, the unique quality of this area stems from the proximity to the three large college campuses nearby. This means that although it can be a little stifling with urban architecture, there are plenty of pretty walking options for anyone who doesn't mind going a little out of the way to explore these different avenues. You may just have to get a little creative!


This area is also extremely flat due to its location in west Texas which is not known for being fairly hilly. It is very rare to find any hills areas aside from the nearby Abilene State Park. Although this does not make this location ideal for hikers who are ready and looking for more opportunities for high-intensity exercise, the quaint surroundings can be perfect for those who are much more into relaxing strolls and easy-going jaunts down sidewalks and across lawns.
