When playing with their pets, Laguna San Luis residents will need to be sure to have rain gear handy as it rains often in this coastal location. September in Galveston is the rainiest month, with an average of over 5 inches of rain. Tropical storms and even hurricanes occur in the area and, although infrequent, pose a danger to pedestrians. Summers are very hot with average temperatures in the high 80s. Walking in Laguna San Luis with your dog first thing in the morning or later in the evening is preferable to braving the daytime heat with your pup.
The terrain is very exposed with little shade in summer when temperatures can be very hot. There are no sidewalks or paved pedestrian paths in the area, so you will need to walk on landscaped property or roadways with your dog to traverse the area. Watch for traffic and be sure to clean up after your dog.
To the south, the Kelly Hambly Nature Trail can be reached by vehicle. This 5.6-acre park and trail have beach access and plenty of natural habitats for local water birds and wildlife. Locals can even take in the monarch migration in late September and early October. Be sure to keep your dog securely leashed so as not to disturb wildfire in this natural area.
