There is even a unique pet supply shop, Alamo Feed and Pet Supply, located on the southwest side of the community where you can stock up on necessities or treats for your canine companion. The Sonic Drive-In is an option for a bite to eat out with your pup who can join you in your vehicle and have a snack too!
San Antonio has hot summers which can be uncomfortable for long hikes with your pup in the middle of the day. Mornings and evenings are popular times for dog walkers during warmer months. Severe thunderstorms, tornados, and flash floods can occur during summer months and should be avoided when they are imminent.
The northern section tends to have curving streets, while the southern section has a more traditional grid street pattern. Most residential roads have sidewalks and grassy berms which provide soft footing and shade trees as well as a safe, separate pedestrian way for people and pets.
The area is composed mostly of moderately sized, single-family homes on well-landscaped properties. The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills to climb in the region, so people and pets of all ability levels can get around easily.
Kenwood Park is located a few blocks to the east of Edison. This small park has a playground and ball field with open grassy areas to enjoy with your pup. There are some paved walking trails in the park. Your dog should remain leashed in this small local greenway and you should be prepared to clean up after your dog.
It is a 30-minute walk east to reach the large 343-acre Brackenridge Park. This interesting park has a zoo, museum, gardens, an outdoor stage, and many acres of treed, wooded areas with hiking trails which your dog will love! Multiple trailheads are available in the park, but the closest to the Edison Community is the Olmos Basin Trailhead. When flash flooding has occurred, naturally surfaced trails in this greenway can have hazardous footing, so use caution. Dogs should be on a leash and you should bring water for longer hikes and baggies to pick up after your dog.
