The main thoroughfare, Myrtle Avenue, has many shops, restaurants, and services along it and is in walking distance for the majority of residents. There's even a unique pet supply store located here, The Myrtle Avenue Pet Centre, where local dog owners can pick up food, grooming supplies, toys, and other pet needs.  


The weather in Myrtletown and the surrounding Eureka area is mild during both winter and summer with few extreme temperatures which makes it perfect for walking.

Myrtletown occupies approximately 2.2 square miles with a population of 4675. The community has an elevation of 112 feet above sea level and slopes down to the east where there is cultivated farmland on the community's border. Most of the Myrtletown neighborhood is relatively level except at the eastern border and not difficult for dog walkers and their pets to navigate.  


Homes in the area were primarily built in the 1950s and 60s and reflect this period. Homes have large windows and low pitched roofs typical of the Pearson Building Company developer responsible for many of the structures in the area. Most of this suburban-like neighborhood has sidewalks running along residential and commercial streets for pedestrians and pups to walk on. Properties are well landscaped with lawns, ornamental shrubs, and trees on private and public property which make the district green and inviting for a stroll with your canine companion.

If your dog is craving some off-leash play, check out the Eureka Dog Park located near the Myrtletown area on its west side. The dog park is enclosed and has a separate area for small dogs. The park provides waste disposal facilities, toys, and even a doggy water fountain so thirsty pups can have a drink!
