The Garrison Park neighborhood is located on the southside of Austin, Texas. Garrison Park is a residential neighborhood with access to commercial areas on the main thoroughfares. There are fast food eateries and restaurants, shops, and services within walking distance for most residents and schools and parks that also make ideal walking destinations. 

Fall and spring are warm and provide ideal temperatures for long walks with your dog in this beautiful region, although there is some rain during these transitions. Winters are mild with temperatures well above freezing and no need to worry about layering up. Summers are very hot and temperatures are usually well above 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Evenings are cooler and many pet owners opt to walk their pets at this time to avoid daytime heat. Severe thunderstorms are a possibility, especially in late spring and summer. Check local forecasts and avoid severe weather with high winds and heavy rain that can be dangerous.

Garrison Park is bordered by W William Cannon Drive on the south, W Stassney Lane on the north, S First Street on the east, and the South Hills Conservation area on the west. The neighborhood is just under 2 square miles in size with an average population density for the Austin area. 


Train tracks bisect the neighborhood from north to south and should only be crossed at designated pedestrian crossing points. The terrain is flat and there are no strenuous hills to navigate. The neighborhood is highly residential with quiet streets. There are busier thoroughfares on the borders with more traffic and commercial activities. 


The area has large residential lots that are well landscaped with spacious lawns and trees. The west side of the neighborhood has less separate pedestrian paths than the eastern section and dog walkers need to be aware of local traffic sharing roadways, walk facing oncoming traffic, and keep their pets securely leashed.
