Lower Mackinney Avenue is a mixed-use neighborhood centrally located in Dallas, Texas. The region is packed with restaurants, hotels, shops, and services all within easy walking distance for residents. The area is highly walkable and densely populated, so those looking for something to do both day and night will have no problem finding opportunities here. 


Dog owners who walk their pups regularly in the LoMac neighborhood enjoy warm weather year round. Rain is infrequent, except during thunderstorms that occur early in the year. These storms can be severe and should be avoided when strolling with your pet. Freezing rain is also possible in the winter and makes sidewalks and roadways very slippery. If possible, wait until icy surfaces thaw before venturing out. Summer heat presents a problem of its own with extreme temperatures creating a danger of heat-related illnesses from overexposure, overexertion, or dehydration. Avoid heat by walking earlier or later in the day.

This highly urban environment is located along the commercial corridor of Mackinney Avenue between uptown and downtown Dallas. The area has lots of traffic and there are trolley tracks along Mackinney Avenue, so when crossing this busy thoroughfare, watch out for cars and public transport vehicles. 


Structures in the area consist mainly of multi-story retail, commercial, residential, and office buildings. There are some high-rise apartments and office towers, walk-up apartment buildings, and some row houses, condos, and single-family dwellings.  


The terrain is relatively flat and there are no steep hills to climb. Busy freeways adjacent to the area are not pedestrian-friendly and should be avoided. This district is a highly diverse, developed urban setting with lots to see and plenty of activity that is interesting to take in on a walk with your pup, but watch out for cyclists, vehicles, and other pedestrians in the area. Ensure your dog is securely leashed and used to noise and activity.
