Wilmington is a large neighborhood with residential, retail, commercial and industrial areas and complexes. This neighborhood comprises 9.14 miles and is located on the south end of Los Angeles, California in the Los Angeles Harbor Region. There are also ten schools in the area and waterfront access with a public park located on the south end of the neighborhood. Walking in residential and retail areas is an activity residents can enjoy, especially if they have a canine companion to join them. Industrial areas are less pedestrian friendly. Wilmington is bordered by several large thoroughfares and freeways, that run through and around it, which provide good access for residents by vehicle but can impede foot traffic, and pedestrian ways in industrial areas are limited, and access may be severely restricted to some of these areas. Walking through residential areas and parks can be enjoyed year-round, as California's coastal weather is very cooperative, even in winter. The weather in Wilmington is hot and dry, with little rain, and few cold days, no matter what time of year it is!

The Wilmington neighborhood is flat and easily negotiated on foot in retail and residential areas, where sidewalks and pedestrian ways are present. Industrial areas are less accessible with fewer pedestrian ways and freeways and overpasses that impede foot travel. This area is home to the 3rd largest oilfield in the US, and Wilmington is sparsely populated due to the industrial activity in the area. The waterfront along the south edge of the community can be enjoyed from a waterside park, however, much of the waterfront is dedicated to commercial and industrial endeavors, and only certain sections of the waterfront are publically accessible for locals and their pups to enjoy ocean breezes. Residential areas have single family homes with fenced yards, gardens, and mature trees providing shade and some more climate-tolerant landscaping. Residential neighborhoods and parks in the area provide some shade and rest areas with greenery for those enjoying the area on foot with their dogs.
