Located centrally in Yuma, adjacent to the Yuma Regional Medical Center, Westridge Estates is a well-established residential area with easy access to services and shops. There is a nearby elementary and high school providing recreational grounds and a large park to the west. A large shopping mall area to the south hosts a variety of stores and shopping opportunities and provides a walking destination for those inclined to shop on foot, just be careful not to buy more than you can haul home! 

The weather in Yuma is very hot and dry, with temperatures often reaching between 90 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the day.  Because of the desert climate, pavement can become very hot, be sure to wear appropriate footwear and protect your pooch's feet as well from hot pavement, with protective footwear. Also, you should consider taking water if you are venturing out in the heat of the day for you and your dog. Better yet, choose to walk early in the morning or later in the day when temperatures are more moderate.

Westridge is an older, well-established neighborhood in central Yuma, with mature landscaping. The terrain in Westridge Estates is typically flat, and many homes feature desert landscaping, which is common to the area, where little rainfall can be expected each year. There are some green landscaped yards and larger trees, which are not as common in some of the newer neighborhoods in this city. Many homes in this area feature swimming pools and landscaping features. There are some sidewalks in this residential area, which create a safer area to walk with your dog through this neighborhood and provide separation from traffic. Some areas, however, lack sidewalks and when walking on roadways you need to keep an eye out for local traffic. Remember, pavement can become extremely hot in the heat of the day, and appropriate footwear is required for you and your four-legged friend if walking on pavement on a hot day in Yuma. And they are pretty much all hot days!

Because it is a more established community, Westridge features more green space than many newer communities, with some lawns and mature green trees. Nearby schools also provide some recreational space and open areas for play and running with your dog. Desert landscaping is the norm in Yuma and desert-friendly plants, terrain, and features are more common than lawns and trees in Yuma. The neighborhood is bordered to the west by Ray Smucker Park. This large 15-acre park has a one-mile walking path, as well as open ground to romp with your dog. There is lots of grass and lawn, which is not as common in this desert city as in more temperate locations. Enjoy lying in the cool green grass under a shade tree with your pup! There is also a playground and picnic areas with grills and water supplies, great for picnics, and three ramadas that provide shelter and shade from the sun. The park provides bathroom families and a dog station, please clean up after your dog to keep the park nice for everyone. The canal that runs along the west side of the park features the east canal trail which runs for several miles north to the Colorado River and south to the Yuma City Municipal golf course. An ideal walking path for you and your dog along the canal.
