Midtown is a neighborhood of Houston, Texas, located just southwest of the downtown core. This is a mixed-use neighborhood with residential and commercial activity. Local shops, restaurants, bars, and theatres are located in the area which is highly walkable. 


Several area restaurants advertise that they welcome your canine companion in their outdoors seating, including Axelrad, Weights and Measures, Gloria’s Latin Cuisine, CoCo Crepes Waffles and Cones, Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, Cuchara, Saint Dane’s Bar and Grille, and Michelangelo. 

 

Hot summer days can result in paved surfaces heating up and becoming uncomfortable, or even damaging to your pup's paws. You may choose to walk earlier or later in the day when temperatures are cooler and you should always ensure that you and your dog have a water supply. Severe thunderstorms are common in Houston during warmer months and these systems have high winds and heavy rain that can be dangerous. Take shelter when these storms are imminent. Winters, however, are mild and you don't have to worry about freezing temperatures in this area.

Midtown is located just southwest of Houston’s downtown and is separated from that area by an elevated section of Interstate 45. Midtown features the same urban grid street layout as the central business district. This is a developed urban area with multi-story apartments, offices, and commercial buildings. Landscaping is limited, although there are some trees along streets and on properties in the area. 


Midtown occupies 325 blocks on 1.24 square miles. The neighborhood is bordered by Interstate 45 on the north, Interstate 69 on the east and south, and the Montrose district on the west. When traveling on foot in the region, you should only cross the freeways and train tracks in the area at designated pedestrian ways.  


There are sidewalks on streets providing separate places for people and pets to walk. This is a heavily trafficked region, so keep your dog leashed. The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills to contend with when hiking about with your canine companion.

Midtown is home to Elizabeth Baldwin Park which is a 4.88-acre historic area with a stone fountain dating back to 1912. This park had lots of shade trees and paved walking paths where you can take your furry friend for a walk. Midtown Park provides a more open greenway and is also centrally located in Midtown. 

Are you looking for some off-leash play for your pup? Check out the West Weber Dog Park which is located just north in Fourth Ward. This enclosed dog park has separate areas for large and small dogs and doggie drinking fountains with washing stations.

A little further north, the Buffalo Bayou Park offers some natural terrain and hiking trails on 160 acres along the bayou. There is also a dog park here with paved paths and a pond, pavilions, trees, wash stations, and drinking water for your pet. The greenway and dog park are subject to flooding and may be closed during wet weather.
