Downtown Eureka is the central commercial district of the town, located along the Eureka Channel which is part of Arcata Bay along the Pacific Coast of California. The area has lots of walking destinations including museums, hotels, coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and other shops and services.  


This neighborhood is a highly walkable district and the weather in Eureka is ideal for on foot travel all year around. Temperatures are moderate with mild winters and cool summers. Winters can be wet and rainy, so a light rain jacket and umbrella will keep dog walkers dry. Your pup may even appreciate some rain gear. Summer temperatures do not get too hot, so pedestrians and pups do not need to go to extreme lengths to avoid the heat. This coastal region can, however, be foggy and reduced visibility can be an issue for motorists and pedestrians who need to be extra vigilant for each other when crossing roadways.

The downtown commercial area of Eureka is located between A and I streets along the Redwood Highway. This is a developed urban area with lots of single and multi-story buildings. Many of the structures in the Eureka downtown are historic and give unique character and beauty to the district. 


The Old Town district is located north of the downtown business district and there is some overlap between these two regions. There are multi-story apartments and commercial buildings in the neighborhood, but they are mostly low rise buildings and there are no skyscrapers. There are some single family homes on the east side of the downtown area and plenty of commercial activity throughout the region. 


Natural landscaping is sparse, although some greenery is more common on the east side where homes and historic buildings reside. The neighborhood is situated along the waterfront and is relatively flat with some slight inclines that do not present difficulty for travelers and their pups.

There are some small urban parks to the south of the downtown area that residents can enjoy with their furry friends. The Jefferson Community Park is an open park area with paved pedestrian paths and a play structure while Hammond Park has an informal ball field and tennis courts.  


Cooper Canyon is located to the southeast and is a naturally wooded greenway along a ravine that stretches for many city blocks. There are some developed recreational areas with sports fields and facilities along the greenway and lots of natural trails through the forested area. The dirt trails in this greenway can have treacherous footing and should be used with caution. It is also possible to run into some small local wildlife in this ravine. Keep your dog leashed, so your pup does not take off after a woodland creature. 


Farther south, the Ryan Creek Community Forest is a large forest preserve with lots of trails to explore with your energetic pooch.
