Wag! Walkers know University Heights

University Heights is a mixed-use neighborhood, centrally located in San Diego, California. The neighborhood is just a 10-minute drive north of the central business district of the city. Many local restaurants, cafes, unique shops, art studios, and entertainment venues can be found throughout the region, although they are mostly concentrated along Park Boulevard and Adams Avenue. 聽


This is a highly walkable neighborhood with plenty of commercial activity and services that can be reached on foot. There are some eateries in the area that advertise that dogs are allowed on their outdoor seating venues, including Mystic Mocha, Live Wire, and Twisted Tap. Another local business, the Bow Wow Beauty Shop, sells baked goods and apparel for your pup. 聽


While walking with your dog in University Heights, you will both enjoy sunny weather most of the year with mild winters. Summer days can be very hot and may require you to adjust your schedule to walk earlier or later in the day.聽

What is the terrain like in University Heights?

University Heights is bordered by Interstate 8 on the north side, Highway 163 on the west side, Lincoln Avenue on the south side, and Texas Street on the east side. Canyons with natural terrain slope down on the north and west sides of the area where the community is situated on ends. Busy freeways on the west and north side create an impediment to on foot travel for people and pets that should only be crossed where pedestrian ways are found.聽


Dwellings in the area consist of single-family detached homes, apartments, and condominiums. There is a wide variety of residences in the district from cottages to large mansions and even a historic district at Shirley Ann Place between Madison Avenue and Montrose Avenue where Spanish Colonial homes dating back to the 1920s are situated.聽


The terrain in the developed area is flat with elevation changes on the borders in the natural areas.

How many greenways are there in University Heights?

University Heights canines can enjoy hikes in the natural canyons on the north and west borders of the community where hiking trails are present. These trails are dirt surfaced, have elevation changes, and are subject to weather conditions. The canyons have natural flora and fauna, so keep your dog leashed to avoid run-ins with local critters like rattlesnakes which pose a danger to people and pets.

A more developed green space is located on the north side of the community, just south of the natural area. The Trolley Barn Park hosts local concerts and events regularly. This greenway has an open grassy area and a paved walking path where you can stroll with your pup for a more relaxed walk on a level surface. There is a playground in the park as well for little ones. Keep your dog leashed and be prepared to clean up after them in both the natural area and the developed greenway.
