Branchwood is a quiet neighborhood in the western suburbs of Bella Vista, AR. Just six minutes from Bella Vista and its many restaurants and businesses, this sleepy neighborhood offers a quiet place to take your dog for a walk. The neighborhood has its own recreation center, but you won’t find anything in the way of strip malls or shopping centers in this quiet little area. If you are needing vet care or treats for your four-legged furry friend, it’s only about a 5-mile trip to take care of their essentials. What the area does have are its own walking trails as well as quiet streets to explore. For those who enjoy quiet walks in nature, there is plenty of room and lots of solitude. You can look forward to mild temperatures and, on average, 221 days of sun every year. Summer temperatures average in the 80’s and you will need to bundle up for winter walking since average lows are in the low to mid-twenties.
Because Branchwood is a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of the city you can expect plenty of trees and quiet spaces. The Branchwood trail weaves in and out of the trees along its length, a great bonus for when you go walking on hot days. The grounds around the trail are well maintained so go ahead and flop down in the grass for an impromptu belly scratch for your four-legged friend. The terrain through Branchwood is mostly flat with a few gentle hills, which is great for beginning walkers and elderly dogs and perfect for training your new puppy. The trail, like the roads, is paved, but your dog will find a lot of grass to roll on and bushes to sniff all along the wooded trail. There are also plenty of side roads and grassy shoulders so walking to the trail from nearby homes should not be a problem.
