University Terrace is located in East Dallas, Texas. The neighborhood dates back to the 1950s and has approximately 3,500 residents. This neighborhood is highly residential and does not contain a significant commercial area. There is a commercial area with shops, restaurants, and services located immediately to the northwest of the community, however, the highway to access the district does not have a pedestrian way and a natural area to the west of University Terrace impedes foot traffic which makes it difficult to reach the area on foot. 


Occasional weather systems with precipitation during winter can cause freezing rain events that make footing treacherous and pet owners may want to wait until icy surfaces thaw and have footwear with good traction. Summer days see extreme heat conditions that are not amenable for walking with your dog and you will need to take precautions to avoid heat-related illness and dehydration by taking water for you and your pup on walks.

University Terrace is a pie-shaped neighborhood with the Northwest Highway on the northern border, Bucknell Drive on the southwest and Middlebury Drive on the southeast. The neighborhood is about 0.2 square miles in size with 416 homes. Homes in the area are generally single-family residences of brick construction and bungalow, mid-century style structures. The highway on the north and railroad tracks running through the southern section of the neighborhood are not pedestrian-friendly areas and should be avoided.   

A greenway runs along the western border of University Terrace and White Rock Creek and Lake are situated to the east, providing lots of nearby green spaces. The landscape is heavily treed and streets are well shaded, have flat terrain, sidewalks, and grass berms which make them ideal for walking your dog. Grass surfaces are cooler and softer on your dog's paws than concrete and there are no strenuous hills to climb.
