Sadly, even with such a large territory to explore, there are not many dog-friendly local businesses here. You can find the chain restaurants scattered throughout and they do welcome pups at their outside tables.
Keep an eye on the Texas weather as it has been known to change quickly in the spring and winter. Ice storms can pop up from time to time that close the city down. Thunderstorms in the spring can bring large amounts of rainfall in short periods that can cause flooding.
You and your furry friend could not traverse the whole of this community in one walk. You might look up some of the specific neighborhoods to learn more about the area you and your pup are in before heading out!
White Rock Lake runs almost down the center of the area and is home to the White Rock Lake Dog Park, the happening dog park in Dallas. This hot pup spot even has a fenced-in swimming area! Meanwhile, White Lake Park has a 9-acre that runs through it and a good portion of that falls inside this neighborhood.
Lake Highlands Park is a rolling 36-acre park with every amenity under the sun. Lake Highlands North Park on Church street gets high marks from neighbors. With its lake and walking trails, this park offers a relaxing on-leash experience for your pup and a peaceful walk for you.
