The region of Central City is just south of the Los Angeles business district. Central City is a very populated and busy neighborhood with lots of busy streets, commercial corridors, freeways, residential areas, and industrial spaces. Most residences are within only a few blocks walk of a main road where services like shops, grocers, and restaurants are available to pedestrians on foot. 


Because the weather in this region is characteristic of the Los Angeles area Mediterranean climate, it is not cold in the winter but can get hot in summer. Rain is rare and there is little concern that you and your dog will get rained out on your daily walk through Central City. On sweltering summer days, however, residents with dogs may want to consider protecting their dog's paws from the hot pavement with doggie boots or plan daily walks early in the morning or later at night when pavement cools off.

Located just south of the Los Angeles central business district and downtown area, this is a very urban, highly artificial, and developed neighborhood. The terrain is flat and although there are some gentle inclines, these do not present much of an impediment to pedestrians walking with pets in the area. Streets in Central City run in a variety of nonstandard urban patterns with linear roads intersecting at a variety of angles. Residential areas consist of single-family homes, walk up apartments, and housing complexes. 


Central City is a densely populated neighborhood with many busy streets and businesses interspersed throughout the region. The northwest corner has a large commercial area that is worth visiting and there are warehouses and industrial activity along the two freeways that border the district. These industrial and freeway areas are not pedestrian friendly and main thoroughfares and residential communities are more hospitable to pedestrians and pets.
