A suburban neighborhood in northeast Dallas, White Rock Valley is a walkable neighborhood a short distance from Dallas amenities, but with services in the community. A small commercial area with retail shops and eateries is located at the intersection of Audelia Road and Walnut Hill Lane. A nursing home, parks, churches, and a school are all located within the neighborhood and malls, museums, and an arboretum are all located nearby. Residents can access many services and destinations in or near their community on foot. 


Dallas pedestrians experience four seasons, although temperatures are warm most of the year. Winter is cooler and rare instances of freezing rain can occur. Avoid walking in these treacherous conditions. Spring is warm, but can be stormy with tornadoes possible, so be sky aware when taking your dog for walks. Summer conditions are uncomfortably hot and dry. Most dog owners walk their dogs early or late in the day to avoid the heat.

This is a highly residential, suburban neighborhood but there is some commercial activity servicing local residences at a major intersection in the northeast section of the district. The highway on the southern border creates an impediment to walking and should be avoided by dog owners as noise and traffic are prevalent. Most of the area is comprised of single-family homes with well-landscaped properties and mature trees that provide shade to streets. There are some condominium and apartment complexes on the west side of the neighborhood. 


The terrain is hilly and, when walking with your dog, you will be navigating some long inclines. Most area hills are not steep, however, there are elevation changes that can be tiring. Many residential areas do not have sidewalks which means pedestrians need to share the road with vehicles. Because this is a quiet neighborhood, this does not usually present a problem. However, pet owners should keep their dogs on a leash.

White Creek Valley contains the White Rock Valley Park which is a small 4-acre space with pavilions, picnic grounds, and a playground. This pretty park is a great place to rest in the shade with your pup but keep your dog off of playground facilities. 


A much larger green space borders the neighborhood to the west. The Rock Creek Greenbelt is a large natural area that contains the 8.4-mile Rock Creek Trail. This trail is used by dog walkers, equestrians, skaters, and pedestrians. It is paved and is wheelchair accessible. Take a short jaunt or a long hike on this easily traversable local greenway. 


To the south, Flag Hill Park has many amenities including drinking fountains, barbecues, picnic tables, restroom facilities, and an excellent greenway. The park is 107 acres with naturally treed areas, and the Flagpole Hill Trail. This trail is a 1.4-mile path connecting to the larger White Rock Creek Trail while boasting fantastic views.
