Located just to the east of the Los Angeles Downtown core, Boyle Heights is an area with multifamily and single family residences. Commercial and industrial areas exist along main roads with multiple schools, churches, and recreation centers. Residents can walk through quieter residential sections or stroll along main roads such as Cesar E. Chavez Avenue and Soto Street where restaurants, services, and shops are prevalent.

This neighborhood enjoys warm, sunny weather all year round and traveling on foot with your dog is rarely hampered by poor weather. This highly urban area can be quite hot in summer and you may choose to take your dog out earlier or later in the day to avoid the midday heat. If you do venture out in the middle of the day, you should bring water for you and your dog, and consider specially designed doggie boots, available at local pet supply shops, to protect your pup's paws from hot pavement and hard surfaces.

The Boyle Heights neighbourhood is a well established, highly developed urban neighbourhood. There are many single family homes and properties back from main streets and a large cemetery and park located in the area. The neighborhood is bordered on three sides by large freeways, so if you are traveling on foot, the only easily accessible regions are to the east. This area has many older homes, some with unique architectural features and interesting properties. Architectural styles vary widely and there are lots of different buildings to see while walking in the neighborhood.

The terrain is flat and streets are straight, making it easy to travel the area on foot with your pup. There are trees and drought tolerant landscaping in residential areas. Commercial areas have more traffic and less greenery to provide shade and there are sidewalks to provide safe pedestrian ways throughout the neighborhood. However, main roads have lots of hot pavement and parking lots and can be very hot on summer days.

The 21-acre Hollenbeck Park sits on the west side of Boyle Heights. This large, beautiful park features a man-made lake that is stocked with fish. Many locals enjoy fishing in this lake and the water attracts birds and other wildlife to the area. There are plenty of winding greenways and paths in this area to enjoy with your dog, but keep your pet leashed so he does not interfere with other visitors' recreational activities. There is a bridge over the lake which provides a unique perspective of the park and water, but some dogs may be leery of crossing a bridge if they have not experienced one before. The park has plenty of trees, lawns, grassy knolls, picnic areas, and playgrounds.

Boyle Heights is also graced with several recreation centers, both in and around the community. Evergreen Recreation Centre, Boyle Heights Sports Centre, and Ramon Garcia Recreation Centre all provide green spaces and properties with sports facilities and fields in the neighborhood.
