The Lost Bayou Historic District in Galveston, Texas is a neighborhood that is not really lost at all! The neighborhood is named because the area was once covered by water until the island was elevated and the bayou disappeared. The area is now a residential district with historic houses and buildings. This neighborhood is very walkable with many restaurants, shops, and services located in and around the neighborhood. 

When traveling the Lost Bayou on foot, you may experience a lot of rainy days in this coastal location. Galveston gets lots of rain and sometimes storms from the Gulf. Be aware of the weather forecast and prepared for wet weather. Fortunately, the temperature in Galveston is warm, even in winter, and rainy days are not cold either! Summers can be very hot and weather can make midday travel on scorching summer days uncomfortable. You will want to avoid traveling on foot at the height of the day.

The Lost Bayou neighborhood is located between Avenue K. and M. on the north and south and between 16th and 23rd on the east and west. Parts of this area were once covered by water but later developed into a residential area when land was raised with many great homes and estates being developed between the late 1800s and early 20th century. Homes in the area include architecture featuring Greek Revival, Italianate, and Folk Victorian styles. They are often elevated to protect them from flooding during storm surges as the terrain is flat and close to sea level.  

The flat terrain means no navigating hills while walking your dog in the area, but there is a danger of soggy ground when rain and flooding occur. The area is well-developed and historic with mature landscaping and very large, mature shade trees. Tree-lined avenues in the area provide cool places to walk on hot summer days.

The San Jacinto park is located just north of the community. The park has a playground and large open area with paved pathways along the border you can walk with your dog. Kempner Park is located to the south and, although not officially a dog park, it includes several doggie facilities including doggie water fountains. Your dog must stay on a leash in this park and other Galveston parks unless there is a designated off-leash area. 

Menard Park can be reached with a short drive to the southwest and dogs are welcome in this park with pedestrian paths and various recreational facilities. 

Beaches in Galveston allow dogs all year round, even during peak season. However, dogs must remain on a leash and owners are expected to clean up to be courteous to other beachgoers. There is a large beach area just south of the Lost Bayou Historic District that residents can take their dogs to and enjoy some beach exploration.
