Glenwood Place is located in the northern part of Siloam Springs, Arkansas, a city that sits on a plateau dotted with dogwood trees. A large creek, Sager Creek, runs through the city. One of its tributaries runs directly south of the Glenwood area. This quiet residential neighborhood is characterized by a “U” shaped road that loops in and out. With only two access points the neighborhood is peaceful and a relatively traffic-free area. There are several pet supply stores, groomers, and businesses in the city center to the south of Glenwood.
Glenwood experiences hot humid summers, and mild cool winters. Summers and winters are fairly dry, with rain more likely to occur in the spring and fall. For walking with your dog in this neighborhood you will usually experience fair weather and only need a jacket in the winter and possibly a rain jacket in the rainiest month of May, but mostly you can count on comfortable dog walking weather and staying relatively dry and warm.
This residential neighborhood has many ranch style homes and well-kept yards, with native trees. There is an absence of well defined, paved, sidewalks, making it necessary to walk your dog along the street. Be sure to keep your dog on a leash and walk facing traffic with your dog away from passing motorists. Because this secluded neighborhood features homes along a loop with only two access points, traffic is usually not an issue as there is no thru traffic only residents. The area is flat, and can easily be walked wearing casual recreational footwear. Most homes are not fenced in the front so your dog can access front yards. You will want to keep dogs on a leash to discourage them roaming onto other people's property, though, and carry doggie doo bags, to clean up any messes and keep yourself in good with the neighbors. Siloam Springs Intermediate School is located to the north, and a small creek and green space border the community to the south.
There is a large green space bordering Glenwood on the south side. This area features a creek and many natural trees as well as open areas. If your dog is a mud monster, he may enjoy the creek; be prepared with a towel at home to wipe off mud! There is a school with large playing fields on the north side of Glenwood that can provide after-hours space for running and playing with your dog as well. The area is near the edge of the city and many rural properties and farms are within a short distance of Glenwood with cultivated lands and pastures. Most farmers do not appreciate you trespassing on cultivated land or where livestock are pastured, however, walking alongside these rural properties to enjoy the country feel of the area will no doubt be enjoyed by you and your dog.
