Wag! Walkers know Fourth Ward

Fourth Ward is a neighborhood located just west of the Houston, Texas downtown area and is a short 5-minute commute from the central business district. The community is one of Houston's original six wards and is situated within the 610 Loop. The Fourth Ward is home to a library, churches, and schools, along with many local businesses. Montrose Boulevard and Waugh Drive are commercial corridors lined with many shops and eateries that are within walking distance for residents. 

Houston weather is warm, sunny, and dry with mild winters. You will not need to dress for cold temperatures in winter months with temperatures rarely dipping below freezing, although occasional freezing rain can occur during cool weather. Wait until surfaces thaw before venturing out with your pet. Summer months see extremely hot temperatures where heat-related illness become a concern. Walk at cooler times of the day, avoid overexertion, and ensure you and your dog stay well hydrated.  

What is the terrain like in Fourth Ward?

Fourth Ward is bordered by Taft Street on its west side, Interstate 45 on the east, Buffalo Bayou on the north, and an irregular border with the Midtown neighborhood on the south side. The community occupies 40 city blocks on 64 acres. Due to its proximity to the downtown area, this community has been the focus of recent development including offices, commercial space, and apartments.  

Dwellings in the area consist of historic and more recently constructed detached homes, multistory apartments and condominiums, and townhouses. There is a cemetery and greenways in the neighborhood. The Buffalo Bayou and associated green spaces on the north side provide natural terrain in the area. Use caution crossing freeways in the region which impede pedestrian traffic and should only be crossed where pedestrian ways are present.

The terrain is flat and dog walkers will not have to concern themselves with steep inclines. However, some streets do not have separate sidewalks for pedestrians and pets and necessitate sharing the road with traffic.

How many greenways are there in Fourth Ward?

Buffalo Bayou Park is a 160-acre greenway on the north side of Fourth Ward with natural landscaping along the bayou. There are cycling and hiking trails in the park which make great places to stroll with your leashed pet and there is a designated off-leash dog park here as well. 

The Johnnie State Dog Park has separate areas for large and small dogs. There are paved paths in the large section and a pond for pups to swim and play in. The dog park has amenities such as a washing area, drinking fountains, seating, and shade on a two-acre site. Other amenities in the Buffalo Bayou Park include visitor centers, picnic spots, a play area, bike and paddle boat rentals, and artwork. The Eleanor Tinsley section of the greenway is the location of several festivals and events each year.

On the south side of Fourth Ward, the West Weber Dog Park provides another enclosed off-leash area for your pup to play loose.
