Dog owners in the area can enjoy walks with their dog all year round without being concerned about extreme cold or snow which is rare in the San Antonio region. Summer temperatures can be extremely hot and humid, resulting in dehydration if you and your pup overexert yourself. Take them for walks early or later in the day to avoid the heat. Watch out for severe thunderstorms which can have high winds and heavy rain. Flash floods can also occur with these storm systems and can create hazardous conditions. Exercise caution during these weather conditions.
Most of the area is residential with single-family detached homes on well landscaped and maintained properties. Yards have large trees and lawns that create an attractive backdrop when strolling with your pet through the area. There are sidewalks throughout the neighborhood, providing safe, separate pedestrian ways for people and pups.
The terrain is flat and there are no steep grades to hike up and down in hot San Antonio weather. A large apartment complex borders the neighborhood on the east side.
To the south, the large Mcallister Park has sports fields and facilities for area residents and paved trails that make great paths for walking with your dog. The longer “Red” trail is just under two miles in length and connects to the shorter “Blue Loop” trail. There is a dog park in this greenway where your pup can enjoy some off-leash fun. The park does not have separate areas, so if you have a small, senior, or shy dog, you might want to check the park out at non-peak hours. There are doggy water fountains in the park and some agility obstacles for fun.
