Wag! Walkers know Govalle

Govalle is a neighborhood located in the east section of Austin, close to the downtown business district. There are ethnic restaurants, live music venues, and theatre companies located in the region that make the area attractive to artists and the district is highly walkable. There is a shopping area on the north end which features a drugstore, a bank, shops, several eateries, and fast food outlets that residents of the area can easily reach on foot.

 

Austin summers are hot and severe storms occasionally occur that dog walkers need to be aware of. Walk your pet early or later in the day to avoid extreme heat and check forecasts for storms that would present a hazard. Winters are mild with temperatures well above freezing and warm jackets are not required to stay comfortable. The transition seasons of spring and fall feature warm temperatures which are ideal for pedestrians and their pups with plenty of sunny weather.

What is the terrain like in Govalle?

Govalle is a mixed-use neighborhood with commercial areas, institutions, industrial, and residential buildings. Some of the warehouses in the area have been repurposed as art studios. 


The Boggy Creek runs through the neighborhood and divides the region into north and south sections. Residential streets on the south side do not always have sidewalks for pedestrians, so be sure to watch for traffic when sharing the road with vehicles. Homes in the area are modest, but have yards with plenty of shade trees and lawns. The industrial areas and busy commercial areas do not have much landscaping with parking lots and hot pavement which makes them undesirable walking locations. 


The Colorado River forms the southern border. There is a farm located within the neighborhood known as the Boggy Creek Farm, providing unique landscape features along the creek. The terrain in the Govalle region is flat and there are no steep hills for pups and people to overcome when walking in Govalle.

How many greenways are there in Govalle?

The Boggy Creek Greenbelt is situated along the creek on the west end of Govalle and provides 89 acres of wooded and open areas with picnic sites. The Boggy Creek Neighborhood Trail is a paved pedestrian path which makes a great location for a stroll with your canine companion. On the south, the Colorado River Park Wildlife Sanctuary features lots of natural wooded areas and the Colorado River Wilderness trail runs through it.

The Govalle Neighborhood Park has a swimming pool, basketball courts, and baseball fields, as well as a playground and paved pedestrian paths running through the grounds. The park has open lawns, treed spots for shade, and is located on the east side of Govalle. 

The Parque Zaragoza Neighborhood park which features a walking trail of the same name is also located on Boggy Creek. The park has plenty of recreational amenities to enjoy for locals on the south side of the neighborhood.
