Elm Thicket, sometimes referred to as North Park, is a residential neighborhood located in Northwest Dallas, Texas. This district has an active neighborhood association that gives the area a strong community feel. There are few commercial services for residents throughout the neighborhood except for some commercial and industrial activity along the western border of the region. A commercial shopping area with more services such as restaurants, large box stores, and smaller shops is located on Mockingbird Lane. 


The weather in Dallas can be hard on pedestrians. Although temperatures are moderate and ideal for walking in fall, winter, and spring, the summer heat and dry conditions are extreme and walking during the heat of the day is not advisable for people or pets. Spring and winter seasons also see inclement weather in the form of showers,  freezing rain, and thunderstorms which are frequent in spring months. Be sure to dress appropriately for conditions and avoid severe weather.

North Park-Elm Thicket comprises 1.4 square miles with a population of approximately 8,800 people. The neighborhood is bordered by Lovers Lane on the north, Mockingbird Lane on the south, Lemmon Avenue on the west, and Inwood Road on the east. Single-family homes are prevalent in the area and are modest in size. Most of these homes are of brick construction and this developed residential area is home to a mostly working and middle-class population. 


There are sidewalks on residential streets and grassy berms which provide cool footing for puppy paws. The region is flat and there are no steep hills to navigate. A dominant feature of the landscape is Dallas Love Field Airport which occupies the west side of North Park. The airport also has an industrial and commercial activity associated with it. This area is great for plane watching but there is significant noise and traffic, so exercise caution.

Polk Park provides a small but recreational space with several amenities to residents within easy walking distance. This park is 2.2 acres in size and has benches, barbecues, and picnic tables so you can plan a bite to eat. There is also a recreation center, soccer field, and basketball court for the sports minded. There are large open spaces and, when not in use by sports teams, Elm Thicket residents with pets can enjoy the large green spaces with their pets on a leash.

Greenway Park is a neighborhood just east that has, as the name implies, a Greenway Park of the same name! This greenway is on the east border and provides a naturally open space to walk your dog, enjoy the shade, and maybe rest in the cool, green grass!

Midway Manor Park is located on the northern border and, although a small park at just 1.3 acres, it is conventionally located for northern residents with pets.
