However, the bustling streats can make it hard to actually walk to these locations. Although just a short drive can get you just about anything in this area, residents usually tend to stick to their neighborhoods, local neighborhoods, or parks for their daily dog walks. Still, if you're willing to fight the traffic, there are several great local pet groomers, vets, and animal hospitals. One of the best animal hospitals in the area is Preston Road Animal Hospital, while Pet Resort Dallas is a fantastic grooming option.
There are also a number of stand alone waterways that usually have more quiet and relaxing walking options. Waterways such as White Rock Creek and Buffalo Creek line the area which cools the general temperature down a bit. Some of them also welcome swimmers which can be a great way to cool off even more during those hotter summer months.
When it comes to parks, this area really is blessed. Not only are there several neighborhood parks, giving each suburb a convenient community location, but there are also several larger parks featuring bodies of water, beautiful scenery, and much more. Many of these parks are a shining example of how the community and government officials in Dallas have really come together to create and maintain more neighborhood park options for local neighborhoods. These are beautiful and safe options for all members of the family to have fun, get active, and really enjoy the outdoors.
One great combination of both types of park is Anderson Bonner Park. This beautiful and green location winds along the White Rock Creek and has beautiful trails lining the creek, as well as large green sports fields, a lake, and much more. Another great local park is Churchill Park. This park offers sports fields, courts, picnic tables, and a community center.
