Lavaca is located just southeast of the central San Antonio business district. There are commercial businesses including restaurants, local shops, and services located on the east side on Hackberry. However, most residents have to cross the major freeway and train tracks to reach this area which impedes the neighborhood's walkability. There is a commercial-industrial area between the freeway and the train tracks, but few establishments here provide necessary services to locals and they are not easy to reach on foot. 


Residential areas are pleasant for walking with your dog and San Antonio weather is usually cooperative for an outing with warm temperatures and sunny days. Spring and fall are warm, sunny, and ideal for pedestrian travel. Winters are colder and wet, although seldom below freezing. Thunderstorms can be severe and should also be avoided. Summer heat is another issue and hot, humid conditions can pose a danger to pets and people who are overexposed. Avoid storms and extreme heat by adjusting your walking schedule accordingly.

Lavaca is a historic residential district with many interesting buildings. Homes in the area vary in architecture with unique features relating to the time they were developed. Because this is an older, developed residential neighborhood, properties tend to be well landscaped with lawns, gardens, and large shade trees. 

Interstate 37 runs north to south through the center of the region and a train track runs parallel, a few blocks to the east. These two thoroughfares create a barrier and can only be crossed at main roads with sidewalks that run over or under the freeway. 

The terrain in this neighborhood is relatively flat and sidewalks are present throughout the community which makes pedestrian travel easier. Although most of the area is made up of single-family homes, there are some apartment complexes and a commercial area between the freeway and the train tracks that people can visit during their daily strolls.

To the west, Lavaca residents can walk through the King William Historic District to reach the San Antonio River Eagleland Park. This greenway, located along the river, provides open and treed areas and recreation grounds. For dog walkers and their hiking hounds, access to the Riverwalk trail which runs along the San Antonio River is located here. The trail is paved in most spots and used by cyclists and hikers. It is a unique urban and greenway trail running along the waterway which takes you past parks, natural areas, recreation facilities, and restaurants, bars, artwork, and historic sites. 


The trail runs along the river, crosses footbridges, and runs through tunnels providing access to many interesting locations and sites. Head south on the trail to reach Roosevelt Park where there is a swimming pool, pavilions, and pedestrian paths. Further south along the trail, Concepcion Park also has sports fields and a swimming pool.
