Wag! Walkers know University Place

University Place is located in central-southwest Houston, Texas. The neighborhood is the location of Rice University, museums, and a busy commercial area with shops, restaurants, and services that residents of the neighborhood can walk to easily. The region has a diverse population which includes students of the learning institutions located here and foot travel is a frequent mode of transportation. 


Houston has warm weather with pleasant springs and fall temperatures for hiking with your hound. Winters are relatively cold with temperatures usually above freezing and a light jacket is generally sufficient for winter months. Occasional freezing rain episodes make conditions treacherous, so be careful when icy conditions occur. Summer temperatures can be extreme with very hot conditions. Walk your dog early or later in the day to avoid extreme heat. Severe thunderstorms and even tornadoes can occur during summer months. High winds and flash floods present a real hazard to pedestrians and pets strolling the region.

What is the terrain like in University Place?

University Place is a triangularly shaped neighborhood with Interstate 69 on the north border, Kirby Drive on the west, and Main Street on the southeast border. The University campuses and museums are dominant landscape features with large grounds and recreational facilities associated with them. There is a commercial area west of Rice University which has less green landscaping and more noise and traffic.  


Residential areas have beautiful older homes with various architectural styles. Private properties have large trees, lawns, and gardens and are attractive and green. Many homes even have large backyards with pools. Streets in the community are narrow and well shaded which is ideal on hot summer days.  


Most local lanes are laid out in a grid pattern except where the college campus is situated. Some roads have sidewalks and grassy berms which provide cool, safe walkways for people and pets. The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills to contend with.

How many greenways are there in University Place?

The entire University Place neighborhood is heavily treed and very park-like, creating a beautiful green area to walk with your dog with grassy boulevards and lots of shade. There are also large green spaces associated with the school and other institutions in the neighborhood. Access to this property for pets may be restricted, so check local regulations.  


Several parks are also available in the neighborhood. Fleming Park has tennis courts and an open area surrounded by large trees which makes an attractive green space. Bell Park is a small park in the University Place region with a circular paved walking path. Local canine companions are nearby to a designated dog park to the north. 


Across Freeway 69, the Ervan Chew Park has separate enclosed areas for large and small dogs. The park is shaded with drinking fountains available. Access to the park on foot from University Place is available on the pedestrian path along the Dunlavy Street overpass.
