Solely a residential neighborhood, you won’t find dog-friendly restaurants or businesses here, but you will find a few in the greater Oak Cliff area. At West Davis and West 7th Street, Bolsa, Oddfellows, Tillman’s, and Tinman’s all offer outdoor seating for you and your furry friend. Watch the Texas heat in the summertime and take precautions for the hot pavement by walking your pup in the early morning hours before the heat of the day sneaks in. Enjoy walking throughout the day in the other three seasons as they usher in the mild weather Texas folks love.
Old growth trees grow not only in the private yards but also in the sidewalk easements, giving the neighborhood a nice canopy of shade to protect you and your pup on your walks. This is a well maintained neighborhood that will expect you to pick up any waste your pup produces.
The Kings Highway neighborhood is really one road and the homes that occupy that space. As such, there are no planned green spaces short of private lawns. However, the neighborhood is located close to some great green spaces in the larger Oak Cliff community.
Stevens Park Golf Course is at the northern tip and, while it is a private course, it is the start of the Coombs Creek Trail, a 1.2-mile asphalt path that reaches west to Kessler Parkway. Welcoming walkers, cyclists, and skaters, it's a great place to walk with your furry friend.
The Twelve Hills Nature Preserve is located on Mary Cliff Drive just to the northwest of Kings Highway. Open from sunrise to sunset, the center welcomes dogs on a leash with the request that you pick up any waste they may produce. A short leash is recommended as small wildlife might be present that could be harmed by a lunging pup.
