Brave the Texas summer heat for a great cup of coffee at the Opening Bell Coffee Shop on South Lamar Street. Pups are welcome in the outdoor hallway section. Enjoy the variety of the neighborhood with longer walks during the fall, winter, and spring. Fall and spring can see the occasional thunderstorm, but winter is usually pretty mild. Any serious winter weather brings the city to a standstill, keeping both pups and people indoors.
You and your pup will find many different experiences on a walk through this area. While the diversity might pique your curiosity, it might stress out a pup with so many changes. Wherever you go in the neighborhood, your pup is going to have a sidewalk and concrete walking experience. Watch for signs of over-stimulation and stress, but enjoy the variety!
Old City Park is right across the street from the Heritage Village and is 22-acre destination park with a playground, recreational facility, and trails throughout. The park is a popular place on weekend and after working hours.
