Broadway Heights is a neighborhood of San Diego, California, located a 12-minute commute east of the central business district. There are no local businesses or services in Broadway Heights, however, there is a commercial area to the northeast along the Martin Luther King Jr. Freeway that is an under a 10-minute drive where a large chain pet store and several veterinary services are located.
Dog walkers enjoy sunny, dry, warm weather in San Diego most of the year. Winters are mild with temperatures above freezing most of the time and little wet weather. May and June in the San Diego area are known for having cloudy, rainy, foggy conditions on occasion, however, fog in this inland location usually burns off earlier in the day. Summer days can see extremely hot temperatures. Make sure not to overexert yourself in hot conditions. Walk your pet earlier in the day and take lots of water on longer hikes.
The residential streets are quiet and pleasant for strolls with your pup, offering sidewalks that provide safe, separate walkways for you and your dog to use. The natural area on the north side provides a greenway and there is a natural area through the southwest corner as well. The terrain slopes quite sharply to the north, so you and your pup will be hiking up and down some steep grades in some areas.
Homes in the region are moderately sized, mostly single-story dwellings on landscaped properties. Drought tolerant and traditional lawn surfaces and trees are common in the neighborhood.
Broadway Heights canines can enjoy walks in the natural ravine behind the homes on the north side of the community. There is a creek in the ravine and you and your dog should be careful during flooding or wet weather when this local waterway can flood. Walking trails in the greenway are naturally surfaced and not maintained, so they can be rough, at times.
Dog walkers can trek a few blocks to the east to reach the Berry Street Park. This community park has facilities, including a restroom, playground, picnic tables, and a paved walking path. The greenway is home to a small enclosed dog park where your furry friend can play off-leash. The surface can be muddy in wet weather and dusty in dry, so you may need to wash your pup's paws when you get home. There are doggie waste bag stations and waste facilities here, however, it is always a good idea to bring your own in case park supplies are depleted.
