Wag! Walkers know West University

Named after the number of college students living in the area, Austin's West University, more commonly known as West Campus, is a bustling, colorful neighborhood full of things to do for you and Fido. From bookstores and coffee shops to peaceful parkways, there is much to explore in this central Austin community. Austin is a very dog-friendly city and West Campus shows that in its friendly atmosphere and varying amenities to enjoy. There aren't any pet stores, but most of the coffee shops welcome furry friends in their outdoor seating areas. 

Austin's climate is perfect for an outdoor excursion year-round. Summers reach temperatures in the high 90s while the winter is mid-to-low 60s. Always check the forecast when planning your walk, especially during the hot days of summer. Plan early morning or evening walks to avoid the sun and hot sidewalks that could damage sensitive puppy paws. 

What is the terrain like in West University?

Much of Texas' geography is flat land, making Austin a very flat city. There aren't any hills in West Campus, making it a good neighborhood for an easy and relaxing walk. The community is ideal for older dogs who can't climb hills and even curious dogs who love exploring and searching for new smells on city streets. Most of West Campus consists of apartment buildings and residential homes filled with college students, young professionals, and even faculty from nearby UT Austin. 

For more of a bustling city vibe, head over to The Drag, an area along Guadalupe Street that features most of West Campus' stores and restaurants. Don't fret about finding a grassy spot for a pit stop. Most of the neighborhood features plenty of grassy spots and tree-lined streets, particularly the western part! You'll also find several busy streets, but there are many sidewalks throughout West Campus to avoid walking close to cars. 

How many greenways are there in West University?

Even though West Campus is located in the middle of Austin and just above Downtown, it still has plenty of green space waiting for your playful pooch to explore. The entire community features grassy areas to relax and play on if you're willing to seek them out. If you head just east of the neighborhood, you can journey through UT Austin's campus where university students studying on the grass will happily give your pet some pets! 

Forming part of West Campus' western border is Pease District Park, a sprawling stretch of greenway that offers walking trails, picnic areas, and more. This is also where you can access the Shoal Creek Trail, a four-mile paved hiking path that follows Shoal Creek from Lady Bird Lake in the south to 38th Street, a few blocks north of West Campus. The trail is well-maintained and you'll find water fountains and restrooms along the way.
