The Main Street District of Dallas, Texas is centrally located near the downtown business district. The area is full of retail shops, banks, restaurants, nightclubs, pubs and bars, and a variety of services, many on the street level of high rise apartment buildings. The area is highly walkable and there are even some pet-related businesses in the Main Street District and the adjacent downtown areas. 


The weather in Dallas is very hot in the summer and pavement that becomes hot can cause injury to puppy paws, so be careful to protect your dog's feet. Fortunately, streetscapes in the district get quite a lot of shade from tall buildings depending on the time of day and angle of the sun, so if you plan your walks, you can avoid direct sunlight. Winters are relatively warm and a light jacket is usually adequate for winter walking. Keep an eye out for showers and thunderstorms in the spring.

The Main Street District, as its name implies, runs along Main Street to Lamar Street on the west and Route 75 on the east. Route 75 is an elevated highway with lots of noise and traffic. Pedestrians can cross under this major freeway, but it is a high traffic area and caution should be exercised. The entire main street area is busy with pedestrian and vehicle traffic and care must be taken when crossing streets. Make sure your dog is well socialized, acclimatized to noise and activity, and prepared for all the hustle and bustle of this district. 


The Main Street District has skyscrapers and multi-story buildings, some of which are historic and have been repurposed. This neighborhood connects to many other business and entertainment districts in the central Dallas area. There are several “triangles” and “squares” providing green spaces and some trees along Main Street. There's even a park with a “Giant Eyeball” just for something completely different!

Unexpectedly, there is a 1.74-acre park located right in the district. The Main Street Garden Park has a cafe, splash fountain, playground, gardens, and a concert green. Good news for your friendly Fido, there is also a dog run located here that provides a safe enclosed area for your dog to play off-leash. Another unique feature is a neon sign spelling out “P-A-R-K” that once graced a parking garage and is now located here. A shade structure with an art feature called “SpectraScape” containing changing bands of light is also a prominent feature.

A little to the west, the Trinity Levee Trail runs along the Trinity River Valley. This trail is gravel based and several miles long with plans for expansion. Cyclists also use the greenway, so watch out for two-wheeled users on the trail. Keep your dog leashed in parks and trails except in the designated off-leash dog runs.
