Weather in San Antonio is very walkable with warm temperatures in spring and fall, although rain is common during these seasons and an umbrella will be a good idea to keep you and your pet dry. Winters are relatively mild, although evening and nighttime temperatures can be cooler. Daytime temperatures usually rise above freezing and although snow can occur, it is rare. Summer heat can be extreme and, if you walk your dog daily, you may want to choose cooler periods of the day to take your dog out.
Forests at Inwood is bordered by Ashton Village Drive on the north, W Bitters Road on the west and south, and a power corridor on its east side. There are sidewalks along residential roads providing separate pathways for pedestrians and pets.
Residences in the area are large and beautiful predominantly stone structures with well-maintained yards. The community is heavily treed with beautiful yards, gardens, and lawns. The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills to climb in the community, but the power corridor on the eastside and undeveloped trees to the north provides more natural green space on the district's borders.
The Forests is a private, well-treed neighborhood with lots of shade that is very much like a greenway coupled with the power corridor and natural space on the east. A short trip by vehicle to the south, both you and your canine companion can access Phil Hardberger Park where a large wooded area is crisscrossed by multiple trails providing miles of walking opportunity.
A greenway extending to the northwest contains the Salado Creek Greenway Trail which connects to the park at the Voelcker Trailhead. These paths are an ideal place to take your dog for a stroll.
More good news for your furry friend is that there are dog parks for off-leash play! The East Dog Park is 1.8 acres and has separate areas for large and small dogs. The small dog area has a unique two-story dog house for pups to play in. The West Side Park has agility equipment so local pups can practice and develop their skills.
