Collins Gardens is largely artificial terrain as there is only one manicured greenway located in the neighborhood's boundaries. Thankfully, much of this neighborhood has well-maintained sidewalks, so you and Fido don't have to share the roads with traffic or other pedestrians. Regardless, always make sure you have control of your pup's leash and you're aware of your surroundings. 


Collins Gardens is also a relatively flat neighborhood. There are hardly any changes in elevation, so you and Fido can enjoy a nice, leisurely walk!

The boundaries of Collins Gardens include Pendleton Avenue to the north, the South PanAm Expressway to the east, the Cleto Rodriguez Freeway to the south, and Frio City Road to the west. Besides the bordering freeway and expressway, Nogalitos Street is the only major roadway that cuts through Collins Gardens and you may wish to avoid it and keep your walking route within the more residential parts of the neighborhood.
