West 11th St Park: A Hidden Adventure

My pack and I have been Heights residents for a couple of years, and less than a month ago we stumbled upon a new spot less than 5 minutes from my house.

Near White Oak Bayou and TC Jester is W11th St.Park. Shelterwood and Shirkmere seem to be the best spots to park so as not to bother the quiet neighborhood’s residents. The park also meets on W11th, but your car will be towed if you park there.

Grab your pup, leashed, and head towards the woods. There are numerous entries into the woods, and the trails are clearly marked. The nature trails wind and bend, but it is a small trail. My pups and I take every turn, trying to stay in the wooded area as long as possible, and we’re able to stretch the walk to about 30 minutes.

We highly recommend W11th St Park. Walking on nature trails is both physical and mental exercise for city dogs. Their noses are planted on the ground, and they all listen to every noise in the trees. A dog needs time to be a dog, and nature trails help them do just that.

Enjoy this hidden adventure in the city!
