Located at the confluence between the San Antonio River and the San Pedro Creek, Confluence Park is a destination for learning and recreation. For eco-conscious San Antonians and their dogs, Confluence is a beautiful place to learn about conservation efforts along the San Antonio River.

San Pedro Creek Culture Park

San Antonio’s newest park, the San Pedro Creek Culture Park opened in May 2018 and celebrates the culture, art, and nature of the city we call home. The first phase of the linear park is open to the public now and features a paved creekside trail adorned with largescale murals and art pieces.

Salado Creek Greenway

Head east towards one of the city’s hidden gems: the Salado Creek Greenway. Stretching from I-35 to Southside Lions Park, the greenway has paved hiking trails that your furbaby will love. With more than 22 miles of trails, there’s always something new to explore in this picturesque part of town.

Food and Drink

The Friendly Spot

As an all-outdoors ice house, The Friendly Spot is a dog owner’s dream. Walk up to the bar and order from their wide selection of beer or tasty bar food, take a seat in their large yard, sit back, and relax with your furbaby.

Candlelight Coffeehouse

Dogs and brunch don’t usually go in the same sentence, but at Candlelight Coffeehouse, your pup is more than welcome on their expansive patio. Sip on a mimosa and enjoy Eggs Benedict on weekend mornings, or savor a glass of wine on a weekday evening—the options to go out on the town with your dog are endless.

Shopping

Dogs love to shop! These San Antonio shopping districts welcome your pups in their open areas and some shops may let your dog inside, but be sure to check before letting them inside the building.

The Pearl

You and your dog could easily spend all day at The Pearl, complete with shops that sell everything from books to clothes to flowers. Several public spaces throughout the former brewery are perfect for you and your dog to relax while taking a break from shopping the boutiques.

It would be an understatement to say people were excited when La Cantera announced they were dog-friendly. The open-air shopping center has everything you could need in a mall—from everyday shops to luxury retailers, your favorite quick service restaurants to upscale restaurants, and everything in between.

Today, the downtown shopping and arts district is home to “San Antonio flare and creative curiosity.” Get your pup excited because you’re going to find some really authentic treasures at La Villita.
