Many of the restaurants in Cityplace feature sidewalk seating, perfect for pets. If you're interested in some shopping, the Three Dog Bakery, a posh pet bakery, sits on McKinney Ave. In the southern part of Cityplace, you'll find a pet supply store and Urban Dogg Dallas, a local pet groomer and treat store.

The most walkable area in Cityplace is West Village. This is where you'll find the widest sidewalks and less vehicle traffic. However, the community does have its busy areas. The North Central Expressway and Route 75 cut across Cityplace and pedestrians have to cross multiple lanes of traffic here. If you plan on going across the neighborhood, keep your pet on a tight leash and stay cautious when walking down these busy roadways.
In the southeast part of the neighborhood is J.W. Ray Park, a green area with a few athletic courts. Up north, just outside the neighborhood's border is Cole Park, a sprawling greenway with a playground and shady areas. Turtle Creek's trails are also nearby to the west if you want to go on a longer hike.
