Glassell Park is located in Northeast Los Angeles in the San Rafael Hills. This mostly residential neighborhood has some commercial areas in its northwest corner and along main roads, such as Eagle Rock Boulevard, which runs through the neighborhood on its western side.  Residences in the western residential areas can access services, shops, and restaurants on foot while the eastern sections of the neighborhood may find access to the same businesses can be difficult to reach, but they can enjoy the views from elevated residential sections of the neighborhood.

Walking in Glassell is something residents can enjoy with their dog all year long, as winters in Los Angeles are mild and there is rarely rain in this sunny climate. Summers can be hot and dry in Glassell, and if you are traveling on foot on hot pavement in the height of the day, you may need to consider protecting your dog's feet with doggy boots.

Glassell Park is a 2.75 square mile neighborhood located in the San Rafael Hills. The terrain is very hilly, with many abrupt changes in elevation, especially in eastern sections of the district where private homes are built on hillsides. These provide spectacular views, but also necessitate steep climbs for residents and their canine companions when traveling the neighborhood on foot.   

There are many natural spaces in hilly residential areas, where the terrain has made buildings impractical. Streets in the area do not follow a traditional grid pattern. Instead, they wind and curve to negotiate the local terrain. Most residential streets have well-maintained sidewalks for pedestrians and their pups. However, hilly residential areas may have narrow roads, and limited pedestrian space and vegetation. Inclines and curving roads may impede visibility, so exercise caution when walking your dog in these areas. Be aware of approaching vehicles and keep your dog leashed and away from traffic.

There is quite a bit of natural area in Glassell, especially where hilly terrain has inhibited development. Residents can enjoy walking in, or near natural areas, but they are often steep with rough terrain that is difficult to walk in. Native animals, including rattlesnakes, can be present in these natural areas so keep your dog leashed and out of terrain that is too difficult or dangerous.

The Glassell Park Recreation Centre is located in Glassell Park and features a large property with green spaces and sports fields. Juntos Family Park features playground equipment and shady rest areas for residents enjoying a walk through the neighborhood.

Just south of nearby Cypress Park is the Rio de Los Angeles State Park. This large park provides plenty of pathways and trails for locals to enjoy with their canine buddies. The area features natural wetlands, wildlife, and native plants. There is also a playground, recreation building, and sports fields in more developed areas.
