Downtown Sacramento is bordered by the American River on the north side, the Sacramento River on the west, 16th Street on the east, and the Golden State Highway on the southern border. The streets in the downtown area are numbered, running east-west and lettered, running north-south for ease when navigating the area. The terrain is level and there are no steep hills to trek up on hot summer days in the downtown areas.  


The north side of the region is light industrial and commercial with low rise buildings and little landscaping. The central section around Capitol Mall has multi-story and high rise apartments as well as office towers with retail space at street level. The southern section of the downtown area has single-family homes and apartments, many of which have historic architecture and are beautifully landscaped. 


Interstate 5 runs parallel to the river and can be crossed on pedestrian ways. Some downtown streets have rail tracks on them for public transportation and there are bike lanes on many roads.

There are many local greenways in downtown Sacramento to enjoy with your canine companions. Crocker Park is situated on the east side near the river and provides three acres with picnic tables, large shade trees, and an open grassy area.

The Southside Park is just under 20 acres in size and has amenities like an amphitheater, fishing piers on the lake, a fitness course, picnic sites, and play areas. There is a jogging track and paved walkways in the park which create an ideal spot for downtown residents to walk with their furry friends. The State Capitol Park-World Peace Rose Garden is a beautifully manicured park with large shade trees, paved walkways, and the scent of the magnificent rose gardens.

For off-leash fun, visit the Truitt Bark Park which has separate enclosed areas for large and small dogs. There is a water supply in the park which is open from sunrise to 10 PM every day.
