The West Village is an urban village located in the uptown area of Dallas, Texas. This neighborhood was designed to be highly walkable with commercial areas and a shopping district, apartments, and condominiums. Residents of West Village can easily access services, restaurants, and shops on foot and there are many parks, trails, public transportation, and a school in and around the neighborhood. 


Winters in Dallas are mild and walking is rarely hampered by cool temperatures although freezing rain episodes do occur and footing is treacherous when pedestrian ways and roads are ice coated. Spring storms can be severe and this region is part of “Tornado Alley,"  so be aware of imminent storms and stay inside when they occur. Summers are very hot and dry with plenty of sun. Pet owners should avoid extreme heat which can cause heat-related illnesses in people and pets. Instead, walk earlier or later in the day when the temperatures cool down.

West Village is bordered by Route 75 on the east, Turtle Creek on the west, Cole Park on the north side, and a large cemetery to the south. The freeway and interchange on the west border are not pedestrian-friendly zones and should be avoided when walking your dog. Turtle Creek is surrounded by a natural area and is a much more pedestrian-friendly area. 


The terrain is relatively flat and sidewalks and brick paths with wide grassy berms make streetscapes ideal for strolls with your pet. Public areas, streets, and housing complexes are well landscaped with trees, shrubs, and lawns providing cool greenery. There are many commercial areas and a shopping complex located centrally in the neighborhood. Apartments, condominiums, and a high rise apartment provide housing for West Village residents. Watch out for traffic accessing commercial areas. Streets are divided with boulevards and well-marked pedestrian crossings to help foot traffic navigate the area safely.
