Dog walkers in the area can enjoy warm weather for strolls with their pet most of the year as winters are mild with temperatures well above freezing. Some wet weather occurs in the winter and spring, but does not generally impede pedestrians and their pups. Summer temperatures can soar to uncomfortable heights and can be dangerous for people and pets that overexert themselves or become dehydrated. Avoid the heat by walking early or later in the day and packing lots of water for you and your dog on longer treks.
Most of Mountain View is a well developed residential area. Homes are situated relatively close together and on well-landscaped properties with lots of trees and attractive yards. The neighborhood is hilly and you and your furry friend will experience some up and downhill climbs while walking in the region. Sidewalks are prevalent along the streets, so people and pets do not have to share the road with local traffic. Parks, schools, and commercial areas are well distributed in the residential area.
Mountain View Park is centrally located in the Mountain View neighborhood and is easily accessible for dog walkers and their canine companions. The park is an open area with a few trees and a great place for a local stroll with your leashed pup. Recreational facilities and amenities in the greenway include basketball courts, tennis courts, a shade pavilion, and picnic tables. A paved walking path provides a walkway for pedestrians and pets. There is also parking adjacent if you choose to drive with your pup to the park.
Greenways are also situated in the community around the Mountain VIew Beckwourth Library and the Willie Henderson Recreation Center. These greenways have open grassy areas, shade trees, and paved walking paths looping around their properties. Leashed pets can enjoy the greenways with their owners. Remember to bring supplies to clean up after your pet in community parks and local greenways to ensure that the parks are pleasant for everyone.
