South Oak Cliff is a section of the Oak Cliff neighborhood located in South Dallas, Texas. Schools and churches in the area provide walking destinations including the South Oak Cliff High School which has large grounds with recreational facilities. There is a shopping plaza to the west of the district which can be reached on foot by following Ann Arbor Avenue and crossing under the interstate to access services and shops. 


When traveling on foot in South Oak Cliff, be sure to wear light, breathable fabrics and bring a water supply for you and your pup so you don't become overheated or dehydrated. Even winters are relatively warm, although freezing rain events can occur, making walking surfaces slick. Fortunately, daytime heating usually melts icy surfaces fairly quickly. Watch out for severe thunderstorms in spring and early summer as well as wind, hail, and lightning which should be avoided when you and your pet go walking.
