San Diego has warm weather for walking throughout the year. Summers can be very hot and dry and you may need to schedule your daily walks to avoid the midday heat. Winters are mild with temperatures well above freezing and little risk of icy conditions or frigid temperatures. During the spring, some rain, fog, and overcast days occur. Clouds and fog usually dissipate as the day wears on and wet weather should not hamper regular outings with your pet.
The neighborhood streets are laid out in a standard urban grid pattern and it is easy to find your way around the area. The terrain is flat with no steep hills to climb up on hot summer days and the streets have separate pedestrian sideways along them, so you and your pup won't have to share the road with local traffic.
Residential dwellings in the area are mostly smaller single-family detached homes and multi-story or low rise apartment buildings. Properties are closely set and landscaping is limited, although some drought tolerant trees and plants provide vegetation.
Teralta Park is located on the west side of the neighborhood. This community park runs over the freeway which crosses underneath it via tunnel. The greenway has a grassy area for play and is ringed by a paved walkway where you can enjoy an outing with your leashed pooch. There are gazebos, picnic tables, basketball courts, and a playground to enjoy.
If you are looking for an opportunity to let your dog play off-leash, you can walk 20 minutes north of Teralta Park with your pup to the Ward Canyon Dog Park. This enclosed dog park has separate areas for large and small dogs to enjoy some freedom. Unfortunately, the surface of the dog park is shredded bark which can be hard on pups with delicate paw pads and there are no shade trees or shelters. In addition, you should bring your waste supply bags and water for you and your pet.
