Wag! Walkers know Independence Heights

Independence Heights is a mostly residential community, located 15 minutes northwest of the downtown Houston, Texas area. There are many local shops, restaurants, and services that are well distributed in the district and are easily accessed on foot. Many local businesses are concentrated on the west side along Shepherd Drive and near the freeway on the east side.

Shepherd Drive is the location of the Garden Oaks Veterinary Clinic and Wabash Feed and Garden, a unique pet supply store. There are also some pet-friendly restaurants that will allow your furry friend to join you on their outdoor seating areas. Local eateries where your dog is welcome include Cottonwood and Taco Cabana.聽

Warm winters and hot summer weather are the norm in Houston. Hot weather can be strenuous for long hikes with your hound. Pick cooler times of the day to venture out and pack water for you and your pet. Check local forecasts to avoid severe thunderstorms which frequent the area in warmer months.聽聽

What is the terrain like in Independence Heights?

Independence Heights is bordered by Interstate 45 on the east side, North Shepherd Drive on the west, West Tidwell Road on the north, and Interstate 610 on the south. To cross the interstate on foot, find main roads with pedestrian sidewalks along them that pass under the freeway. 聽


The terrain in Independence Heights is flat and there are no steep hills to hike up on hot summer days. Most areas have separate sidewalks for pedestrians and pets, but some smaller residential sections do not have any. The neighborhood of Independence Heights is very well landscaped with lots of large trees along streets, providing shade from the summer heat. Bayous and drainage canals crisscross the neighborhood and have natural terrain along their banks.


Dwellings in the area are single-family detached homes that are attractive and well maintained. Some areas have a close set structures, but much of the area has large spaces between homes, schools, and churches with larger properties.聽

How many greenways are there in Independence Heights?

Independence Park is centrally located in the Independence Heights neighborhood. This greenway has a community center with a pool, lighted sports field, basketball courts, and lighted tennis courts.

Kerr Park is a local green space associated with the nearby elementary school and features an open field with some trees on the perimeter that is easy to get to on foot.

There are also facilities here for recreational activity, a golf course, and an arboretum in the greenway.
