Dallas' largest historic district, Junius Heights, is a neighborhood of more than 800 homes in East Dallas. It is bordered by Gaston Avenue on the northwest, Paulus Avenue on the northeast, Reiger Avenue on the southeast, and Henderson Avenue on the southwest. 


Strictly a residential neighborhood, the area has no dog-friendly establishments within its borders, but you can find one place just a little outside the neighborhood. Liberty Burger on Abrams and La Vista have several tables outside that welcome our furry friends.  

Walking in Texas means dealing with the heat most of the time. Summer seems never-ending and with temperatures reaching into the 90s and sometimes over 100, it can even be dangerous for humans and canines! Carry water with you all the time in the summer and try walking in the early morning hours to beat the heat. Spring and fall are much more mild with just the occasional thunderstorm to hinder your daily walks.

Junius Heights is a residential neighborhood that is a good combination of natural and artificial turf, but the natural turf comes in the form of private lawns. The majority of the terrain in the neighborhood is flat and not a big stretch for walking with your pup. Distance will get the exercise larger dogs need without climbing.  

Homes in the neighborhood have a variety of driveway placements, making it a challenging place to navigate. It would be best to keep your furry friend on a short leash and to be watchful of inattentive drivers.  

This will be a sidewalk-heavy walking experience for you and your pup with the narrow sidewalks that come with an older neighborhood. The canopy of old growth trees is amazing in most of the area and will provide great shade cover in the heat of the day. Automotive traffic will be tempered by residential speed limits but you'll want to practice good pedestrian traffic rules nonethtless.

While there are no large green spaces in Junius Heights proper, there are some nice parks within a comfortable walking distance. Randall Park is at Columbia Avenue and Mt. Auburn Avenue. It is a 16-acre park that is home to baseball, soccer, and softball fields, tennis courts, and an outdoor basketball court. The park has concession stands during games and vending machines near the fields. This is a busy neighborhood park when the sports are in season and a destination park on the weekends and after work hours. Enjoy the trails that wind through the park but keep your pet on a leash as this is not an off-leash area for them.

A very small park, the Dorothy and Wallace Savage Park, is a 0.1-acre space located at Parkmont and Swiss. Home to a sculpture area, this park is worth walking to, but there is not much that surrounds it as far as walking paths go.
