Because this is an older, mature, developed neighborhood, there are plenty of mature landscaping features. Large older trees are common in yards, providing shade to passersby. There are also many business and services, such as schools and medical clinics, spaced throughout the neighborhood interspersed with residential areas, which provides a variety of walking destinations. The area is flat, and most streets have sidewalks to keep pedestrians and pets separate from traffic. There is a lot of traffic and activity in this heavily populated area, however, so take care when walking and crossing streets, especially near major arteries. Many residents take pride in their homes and have beautiful yards with flowering bushes, plants, and trees, and homes are varied in architecture and style. Because this older area features such a variety of homes, services, businesses, and properties, there is always something unique to see on walks through Westmont.

This well-developed area does not have a lot of natural spaces, however, there are several schoolyards in the area, providing playgrounds and sports fields. Ellington High School, which is centrally located in Westmont, provides large playing fields for students, local sports teams, and residents. This makes a great destination for you and your dog, and when fields are not in use, you can enjoy the open green space with your pet. There are also several parks in the area, and although they are not large, they are well distributed and usually accessible on foot. Parks include Jesse Owens Park, Circle Park, Darby Park and Little Green Acres Park. All provide green spaces, playground equipment, and benches for residents to enjoy. Check local regulations regarding access for dogs; most public parks require you to keep your dog on a leash at all times and aggressive or noisy dogs are not permitted.
