Take your furry friend and jaunt back to the 1920s on the 'M Streets' in Greenland Hills, a neighborhood in east Dallas, Texas. This quaint neighborhood is found east of US 75 over to Greenville Avenue in the heart of the Dallas suburbs. Greenland Hills is a dog-walking haven of residential Tudor homes built in the 20s that are protected in a conservation district that makes changes to this historic neighborhood a rare event.
You won’t find dog-friendly businesses here, but think of this neighborhood as a place to make some long-term friends – human and canine alike! As an area popular with young families, you will be sure to see lots of furry friends growing up here too.
Expect the typical Dallas weather with hot summers and temperatures rising to over 100 degrees with mild fall and winter days. Enjoy a leisurely walk with your furry friend on a leash and stop to say hello to the neighbors along the way!
Greenland Hills is a neighborhood that defines what 'neighborhood' means. A flat mix of artificial and natural terrain will greet you on your walk with your buddy by your side. It is what you would expect of an older established neighborhood. Sidewalks abound through the roughly 20 blocks of homes and old growth trees provide shade in the heat of the day.
This is a dense residential area that has slower traffic the further into the neighborhood you go, but still, you will experience a good amount of automotive traffic. Pay attention to your surroundings and the traffic patterns.
Most of the green space your furry friend will traverse here will be private lawns. Keep an eye out for lawn service flags that might indicate chemicals on the grass. Pecan trees are also popular with Texas folks, so keep an eye out for choking hazards when the nuts fall to the ground in September through December.
As a genuinely residential neighborhood, the green spaces you and your pup will find in Greenland Hills will be private lawns. Mature trees provide shade through the heat of the summer, however, there are no established parks in the neighborhood.
But don't despair! A few blocks north, you can find Glencoe Park, a 14-acre multipurpose space. Glencoe Park is as historic as Greenland Hills and has been around since 1944! Concrete walking paths wind through the park where you will find drinking fountains for you and a chance to fill up a water bottle for your pup. The park is pet-friendly, but not an off-leash experience for your dog. Follow the trails around the rugby and softball fields and take a gander at the tennis courts and playground. Glencoe Park has a little something for everyone. This park is a popular destination in the area, so expect other walkers and pups and the opportunity for some on-leash fun!
