The Pleasantville Area is a super neighborhood on the eastern side of Houston, Texas, formed in July of 2001. The neighborhood is comprised of both the Pleasantville and Groveland Terrace subdivisions. Although large sections of the district are industrial and commercial, there are no walkable establishments catering to the needs of locals. 

Luckily, dog walkers in the Pleasantville area do not have to contend with frigid temperatures in winter and heavy coats are not a necessity. Summers are very hot and, when taking your pet out, you may choose earlier or later in the day to avoid high temperatures. Adjust your activity accordingly, take water for you and your furry friend, find shady walking paths, and be aware of signs of heat-related illnesses in you and your pet. Severe thunderstorms can also occur in warmer months. When storm systems with dangerously high winds, heavy rain, and electrical activity are taking place, seek shelter.

The Pleasantville Area is bordered by Interstate 610 on its east side and Port Houston on the west side. It is situated south of the train tracks along Liberty Road and north of the tracks on Clinton Drive. This region is comprised of two subdivisions to create what is referred to as a super neighborhood. The north side of the district is comprised of commercial and light industrial areas and is not a pedestrian-friendly area.


The southern section of the neighborhood is residential with moderate single-family detached dwellings and landscaped yards. Residential streets have separate sidewalks and grass berms, creating safe, separate pedestrian paths for people and pets. 


The landscape is flat and there are no steep grades or inclines to climb in the area when traveling on foot. The level terrain is good news on hot summer days where trekking up steep hills would be extra taxing! A large undeveloped field on the southeast side has irrigation channels and provides an open space.

Pleasanton Manor Park is a conveniently located community park with sports fields, a playground, and basketball courts. There are some trees on the park's borders, but otherwise, it is quite exposed and open. Your dog must remain leashed in this and all community parks not designated as off-leash areas.

Pleasantville Park is located centrally next to the elementary school in the area and features an outdoor swimming pool and sports fields and facilities. There is a short paved walking path to stroll with your dog in the greenway.

The much larger Herman Brown Park is located to the east, a ten minute drive away, and is not easily accessible on foot due to freeways that create an impediment to walking. This park features a 7.6-mile hiking loop with treed areas and a lake. This greenway is an excellent hiking spot for you and your hound! There is lots of shade in the wooded areas, but keep your dog securely leashed as local wildlife make this greenway their home.
