Wimbledon is a small community in the north of Bella Vista. It lies on the Springfield Plateau of the Ozark Mountains, making it a unique place in terms of its terrain. Chelsea Road runs along its eastern border, creating the main access to the community. Otherwise, the area is small and consists of only a couple of roads here and there.
Since the neighborhood of Wimbledon is made up of only a couple of roads and has a small population, there are no pet-centered amenities directly in the area, however, Bella Vista Animal Shelter is located just north of the Golf Club on Bella Vista Way. It provides a safe-haven for any pooches that don’t have owners, so it’s a great place to pick up a new family friend via their amazing adoption service. Viva La Pooch Salon is located on Forest Hills Boulevard on the other side of Lake Avalon for all of your bathing and grooming needs.
Wimbledon has terrain that is indicative of the Ozark Mountain region with steep inclines and sharp drops which form the lakes in its surroundings. This can mean there are tough walks in the area. While there are no cliffs or San Francisco-style hills, the area is most definitely not flat, so please be prepared for this when you begin your walk.
Wimbledon is a small area which is surrounded by forest, lakes, and other natural terrains. While it can be described as a residential area, there are a lot of great places for walks that will take you off the sidewalks and into the wilderness. This is great for your pooch who will have lots of space to roam free off-leash. The area is described as incredibly dog-friendly, so be prepared for the excitement your puppy pal will experience when he hears the clutter of the leash and the nearby sounds of other dogs.
Wimbledon is surrounded by great greenways that are perfect for long walks. Right nearby, you have the Tanyard Creek Nature Trail. This beautiful walk takes you past waterfalls and a stunning creek that will help you breathe, relax, and take in the fresh air. Your dogs will love padding around in the numerous water pools and there are a number of picnic spots along the way that will give you a chance to sit and enjoy the view.
Just south of Wimbledon, you have Lake Windsor. This is another place with great views that is perfect to take the pooch. The Tanyard Creek Meadow Loop off the trail gets incredibly close to the Lake Windsor Boat Ramp and water’s edge, so why not combine the two while you’re on a walk? Lake Avalon is just to the west of the walking trails, so you’re close by to a number of great natural spaces.
