Sharpstown is a large neighborhood located in Houston, Texas. It is located almost twelve miles to the west of downtown Houston. Houston, the largest city in Texas, is located in the southeast area of the state and is known for its proximity to Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Houston is also home to several universities, NASA's Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center and Mission Control, professional football, basketball, and baseball teams, and plenty of museums, like the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Houston Zoo!

Sharpstown itself has a good mix of residential and commercial areas. Residentially, many of the homes are standalone and built for single-families, but there are also a decent number of apartment complexes in the neighborhood. Commercially, you will find a country club and golf course, plenty of schools and places of worship, Houston Baptist University, local and chain restaurants, and shopping complexes.

As a suburb of Houston, a major urban metropolis, Sharpstown is composed of artificial terrain. This means, however, that you and your pup will likely always have sidewalks to use instead of sharing the roadways with other pedestrians or traffic. Additionally, many of the residential neighborhoods have large, mature trees lining these sidewalks, so you should have plenty of shade during those brutally hot Texas summers!

Sharpstown is also a fairly flat neighborhood with almost no changes in elevation, so your daily walks with Fido should be relatively easy and leisurely.

The boundaries of Sharpstown include Westpark Tollway to the north, Hillcroft Avenue to the east, and Bissonnet Street, Southwest Freeway, and Brays Bayou to the south. Bellaire Boulevard, South Gessner Road, Beechnut Street, and Fondren Road are all home to many of the commercial businesses in this neighborhood, so traffic may be more congested along these roads.

Since Sharpstown is such a large neighborhood, it only makes sense that it is home to more than a few greenways! Public parks in the neighborhood include Crain Park, Lansdale Park, Bonham Park, Bayland Park, and an unnamed greenway on the corner of Bellaire Road and Fondren Road. 

Bayland Park is the largest greenway in the neighborhood. This 61-acre park has plenty of sports fields and courts, two playgrounds, a pavilion and picnicking area, a walking trail, a community center, and public restrooms. 

Other smaller greenways typically have some benches or a few picnic tables, a playground, and short, paved walking paths. Parks in the surrounding neighborhoods which could easily be walked to include Arthur Storey Park, Burnett Bayland Park, Braeburn Glen Park, Emanu El Memorial Park, and Blossom Heights Park.

The nearest dog park is three miles to the southwest. Texas Direct Auto Dog Park has grassy turf, separate areas for both large and small breeds, water fountains, and a dog slide!
