Wag! Walkers know Little Italy

Little Italy is a vibrant ethnic enclave located just north of San Diego's downtown core. The community is known for its nightlife, restaurants, and unique ethnic shops. India Street is the main commercial corridor, but many busy streets in the region are lined with local businesses which include art galleries, home design stores, and the Doggie Style Pets Little Italy where local dog owners can restock on food and supplies. The Amici Pet Hospital of Little Italy is also located here for pet owners who need to access health care for their pups. 

 This neighborhood is considered highly walkable and local festivals and a weekly farmers market are held in the district. If you're looking for a bite to eat while out with your pooch, there are pet-friendly restaurants in the region including Landini’s Pizzeria, Pappalecco, and Cafe Italia.  

Warm weather in the summer is ideal for strolls with your pet. May and June can be overcast and foggy with reduced visibility, especially in this waterfront neighborhood.

What is the terrain like in Little Italy?

Little Italy is a highly urban neighborhood occupying 48 square blocks and bordered by West Ash Street on the southside, West Laurel Street on the north, the San Diego Bay to the west, and Interstate 5 to the east. This region is adjacent to the downtown core of San Diego with multi-story buildings and busy streets. Your dog will need to be leashed, accustomed to traffic and pedestrians, and be trained not to step off curbs without direction. 

The terrain has some gentle hills, although grades are not steep and do not hamper on foot traffic. Most dwellings in the area are apartment buildings, but there are some single-family detached homes on the north side. Landscaping in this urban area is limited and there is not a lot of greenery or shade. The neighborhood has separate sidewalks along city streets that provide safe pedestrian ways and you and your canine companion do not have to share the road with local traffic.

How many greenways are there in Little Italy?

Waterfront Park is centrally located in the Little Italy neighborhood. The park has a splash and play zone that is not open to dogs. A large open lawn with walking paths makes a more appropriate place for walking with your leashed, furry friend and there are native plants and public art creating interest in the greenway. The Embarcadero Walkway along the waterfront offers views of the bay and extends along the waterfront to the north and south making a beautiful place for a stroll with your pet! 

The Little Italy Amici Dog Park is located on the east side. This great off-leash dog park is very popular and the surface of the park is green turf with some dirt areas. There are waste disposal supplies and dog bowls for water in the park. Shade and seating for dog owners is available to use while supervising your playful pup. The park is situated next to the Amici Park Bocce Ball Courts.
