Cedars is a centrally located neighborhood of Dallas. This older, hip neighborhood is home to an entertainment district with theaters, restaurants, bars, music venues, and a drafthouse. There are also schools and offices as well as shops and services in the region and the community is highly walkable with lots of destinations for pet owners and their dogs to reach on foot. The Dallas Heritage Village, a local museum is also located in Cedars. 


Pedestrians in Cedars enjoy warm, dry weather all year around and frigid temperatures are not a factor for dog walkers. Thunderstorms occur in the spring and can be severe, so don't take your dog walking when storms appear imminent. Winters are relatively mild, however, occasional freezing rain makes footing slippery and icy pedestrian paths should be avoided as you or your dog could slip and fall. Dogs can be especially prone to hip and groin injuries if they slide on icy surfaces.

Cedars is near Downtown Dallas. Austin Street is on the west, Corinth Street on the south, Interstate 30 on the north, and Interstate 45 lies on the eastern border. There are train tracks on the west side as well and tracks and freeways are not pedestrian-friendly areas, nor is the light industrial zone on the southwest side of the neighborhood as large trucks and traffic entering and exiting businesses present a hazard to pedestrians and pets. 


There are some gentle inclines and slopes in the neighborhood, but no significant hills. Residential buildings in the area consist of single-family homes. Many older character type homes are situated here and there are lofts converted from older commercial signs and multi-story apartments in the area. Cedars does not have a lot of landscaping and trees and lawns are not common in the district, except in the northeast corner where a park and heritage museum resides.

The Brent Place Old City Park is located on the northeast corner and associated with the heritage museum nearby. This 22.1-acre park has garden areas, trees, lawns, and several trails that local dog owners and their pooches can enjoy.

The Trinity River and Trammell Crow Park are a short drive to the west and provide lots of natural space along the river with plenty of trails, trees, and open spaces. The Trinity Skyline Trail and Trinity Levee Trail can both be accessed in this area. The Trinity Skyline Trail provides spectacular views of the Dallas Skyline and has a concrete surfaced, 5-mile, multi-use trail. Keep your canine companion leashed and watch out for cyclists and inline skaters on the trail. The Levee Trail is 6 miles in length and has gravel surfaces. It's also shared with cyclists and acts as a maintenance road for the levee, so watch out for two and four-wheeled traffic on the trail.
