Waterford is an upscale community with large homes and residential lots. Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the terrain is hilly and residents walking in the neighborhood will experience some steep climbs. If you or your pup has mobility issues, this can be problematic and you may opt to travel to more level terrain for daily walks with your furry friend. 


There are natural and rural areas bordering this community on the east side which have more open and less urban landscape. The Waterford neighborhood has lots of greenery and landscaping with mature shade trees including native oak trees. Most homes are large and well landscaped while the residential roads are windy and follow the hilly terrain. These residential streets do not have sidewalks and pedestrians have to share the road with vehicles. Be sure to walk facing oncoming traffic and keep your dog on a leash and close by your side to keep you both safe.

There are two parks within easy walking distance for Waterford residents. These are Lake Forest Park and Waterford Park. Waterford Park has a playground, open lawns, a paved pedestrian path, and lots of beautiful shade trees along its perimeter. Dogs are not permitted on the playground, so stick to adjacent pedestrian paths when walking your pup in the area. 

Lake Forest Park has some recreational activities and a larger natural area to walk through with winding paved pedestrian paths. 

The Folsom Lake greenway surrounds the lake and there are plenty of nature trails along the water to explore with your pooch. If you want your dog to enjoy some off-leash fun, there is a dog park located on the west side of New York Creek near the athletic fields located there. The park has separate enclosed areas for large and small dogs to play as well as toys, a drinking fountain, and waste facilities.
