A concentrated center for commercial buildings, South Point, is right next to a shopping center and bordered by an interstate and William Cannon Drive, a major bus route for the local metro. A branch of the public library rests on South Point's corner, with some scores of brush and trees, which is perhaps the only form of natural elements you'll find.
This neighborhood also boasts local grocery chains, beloved restaurants, and easy access to the highway to get you and Fido to wherever your next adventure may be. Williamson Creek Greenbelt is a quick 10-minute drive away and is perfect for anyone looking for a leisurely stroll through a quiet neighborhood. There's also Kendra Page Neighborhood Park just a few miles on the other side of I-35.
The terrain is not demanding, which could make it perfect for a city dog - or owner - who isn't looking to overexert themselves on a rugged hike or up a steep hillside. There are crosswalks at intersections, allowing for you and your pet to cross safely if needed.
Due to its lack of nature, walks within this area won't offer much shade. Be sure to take precautions in the Texas summer heat by packing water for yourself and especially your dog as their temperature is regulated through their paws and can become too hot on the pavement. (Tip: If your pooch is panting too heavily or slows their pace, try to find some shade and splash their paws with water, this will help cool them down more quickly.)
Kendra Page Neighborhood Park, which is slightly closer to South Point Village than the Greenbelt, is visited by families from the surrounding houses. Equipped with clear paths, picnic tables, and a playground, you may find this park lively on a weekend or a weekday afternoon. Kendra Page Park varies between being forested and open. If you trust your dog off leash and are aware and respectful to others nearby, it offers an openness that's great for throwing a few frisbees.
