With so much happening in the Alamo City, it makes sense that you want your four-legged friend to join in the excitement. San Antonio has a multitude of dog-friendly spots where you and your pup can enjoy our great city together.
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 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.
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.
Not only does The Cove happily welcome dogs, they also serve sustainable, organic, and local food. With a playground for kids, live music events, and a large outdoor patio where furry friends can hang out with their best friend (that’s you!), The Cove has something for everyone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It’s not often you get to spend an afternoon in a place with as much history at La Villita. Founded in the 18thcentury, La Villita has been a landmark of San Antonio for nearly 300 years. 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.
