Wag! Walkers know Galindo

Galindo is a neighborhood in Southwest, Austin. There are some light industrial facilities located in the southeast corner with restaurants and a small commercial area on the northwest corner of the neighborhood. S 1st Street on the east side is lined with many shops, local eateries, and services that are accessible on foot. An elementary school and recreation center are centrally located and within walking distance. The Galindo neighborhood has a strong sense of community and neighborhood organizations are very active. 


Austin experiences warm weather throughout the year with mild winters when the temperatures are usually well above freezing. Heavy outerwear is not required to enjoy walks with your dog in the neighborhood. Summers are much hotter and heat-related illnesses are a possibility. Avoid overexposure by walking at cooler times of the day or in shady locales. Severe thunderstorms are also a risk during the warmer months and you are encouraged to check local forcasts before venturing out. 

What is the terrain like in Galindo?

The train tracks on the west side of the neighborhood and freeway to the south are not pedestrian-friendly areas and crossing these on foot can be hazardous.  The West Bouldin Creek winds through the west side and has a large wooded area associated with it. 


The neighborhood is an older, developed neighborhood with vintage charm and mostly ranch and bungalow style homes built in the mid 20th century. Properties are well landscaped with large trees and lawns. There are also some housing complexes in the Galindo area. A large recreation center and grounds take up a significant amount of land centrally in the district. 


The east side has a commercial corridor with lots of businesses, parking lots, and increased traffic to be vigilant for. Residential streets are quiet but less likely to have separate sidewalks for pedestrians. The area has some hills and elevation changes that travelers and their pets will have to contend with as well.

How many greenways are there in Galindo?

The South Austin Park and recreation center occupy 11 acres in the northern section of the neighborhood and there are many sports facilities and fields on the grounds including some paved and unpaved walking trails where you can stroll with your dog.  


The West Bouldin Creek is located on the west side of the neighborhood and there is an associated greenway with heavily wooded areas. Natural trails are popular with dog walkers, however, unmaintained dirt trails can be hazardous during inclement weather, making the creek areas and the terrain treacherous. 


The Gillis Neighborhood Park is located in the community directly to the east of Galindo and is within walking distance for pedestrians and pets in the community. This park has walking trails, a pool, playground, picnic areas, and restrooms. A larger natural area, The Barton Creek Greenbelt, is situated a short distance to the west and features miles of greenway trails to explore with your pup.
