Wag! Walkers know Dawson

Dawson is a neighborhood of South Austin, Texas. The neighborhood is highly walkable with plenty of unique commercial services and more chain stores and businesses located along main thoroughfares. 


Dawson is known for having an eclectic, vintage vibe with lots of artists and students. The area is close to large shopping areas and nightlife but maintains a quiet atmosphere. There are art galleries and several mosaic murals in the neighborhood that make interesting walking destinations and provide a unique backdrop for pedestrians and their pets. 


Austin weather is usually cooperative with warm weather in spring and fall and mild temperatures in winter. Summers can be too hot for comfortable pedestrian travel during the height of the day. Dog walkers often take their pets out earlier or later to avoid extreme temperatures. The Austin area is located in Tornado Alley and severe storm systems occasionally occur. Check local forecasts before venturing out to avoid getting caught in a thunderstorm.

What is the terrain like in Dawson?

Commercial areas in Dawson tend to be situated near the main thoroughfares on the border and there is more traffic and noise in these areas that make them less desirable. Quieter residential roads are more tranquil and relaxing for nervous pooches. 

Most of the homes in Dawson date back to the middle of the 20th century and reflect the architecture of that time with large properties, lawns, and trees. The area maintains its original character with some newer homes and multi-family complexes also located in the neighborhood. A small creek bisects the neighborhood at an angle with a ravine and natural wooded areas bisecting the community into northeast and southwest sections. 

 Most of the region is relatively flat with only some slight inclines that are not problematic for pedestrians and pets. There are sidewalks located in most areas of the district, although some sections only have separate pedestrian ways on one side. Always choose sidewalks when possible for safety. 

How many greenways are there in Dawson?

The Gillis Neighborhood Park is located on the north side of Dawson and has many amenities including picnic sites, a pavilion, a playground, restrooms, a swimming pool, and walking paths throughout. It's a great local greenway to visit right in the Dawson neighborhood.  

There are larger natural areas located to the east and west. The Blunn Creek Nature Preserve Trail to the east indicates that dogs are not allowed, so check the website for changes in policy. However, the Barton Creek Wilderness Park to the west is a large wooded natural area with lots of hiking and biking trails where dogs are welcome. Barton Creek runs along the trail and features local swimming holes. The trail also has limestone bluffs, large boulders for rock climbing with great views, and plenty of local wildlife. 

Keep your dog leashed on this greenway to be respectful to other users and local critters who may not appreciate your pup's attention.
