Located in central, southwest Dallas, Texas, the Bishop Arts District is known for its unique character. The neighborhood is home to over 60 independent restaurants, shops, bars, theatres, and art galleries within walking distance for area residents. Most of the commercial activity and entertainment venues are located along Davis Street on the northern border of the residential neighborhood and along Bishop Street. Locals can enjoy walking their pets on the quieter residential streets or along the vibrant arts district thoroughfares.


During summer months, dog owners are encouraged to walk their dogs during cooler times of the day as midday temperatures climb well into the 80s or higher. Winter and fall temperatures are mild and usually ideal for strolling with your pup, but occasional freezing rain can occur in winter which makes footing treacherous. Spring temperatures are warm, but severe storms can occur so check the daily forecast before venturing out on a long excursion with your hound.

The Bishop Arts District has a large residential area with single-family homes, large properties, and landscaping on private properties to the southeast and southwest of the commercial arts district at the intersection of Bishop Street and Davis Street. The main thoroughfares were once a warehouse district and buildings have since been converted to retail and entertainment space with colorful murals and interesting local businesses. 


The terrain in the Bishops Arts District is flat and there are no steep areas which would make walking in the area difficult. Sidewalks provide pedestrian paths for people and their dogs to walk the neighborhood and large trees on residential properties and along residential streets provide shade in summer. Busy commercial thoroughfares have lots of pedestrian and vehicle traffic and you will need to keep your dog secured on a leash and acclimatized to activity to enjoy the excitement and venues located in the arts district.
