Dog walkers in Regis should be prepared for sudden changes in weather. Because of Denver's high plains location, daytime low and high temperatures can vary significantly requiring different outerwear throughout the day. Severe storms can also occur suddenly. Winter is cool and snowy, so Regis residents who like to walk their dogs in winter should have warm coats and good footwear to negotiate icy walkways. Summer is generally warm and pleasant, however, can become extremely hot. When the temperature rises, take shelter and avoid overexerting yourself or your pet.
A large golf course situated on the west side of the neighborhood provides manicured green space in the community. Most of the streets in Regis are laid out in a traditional grid pattern and lined with single-family homes with neatly landscaped yards, lawns, and trees. Roads mostly have separate sidewalks for pedestrians and pets and grassy berms separate paths from roadways, providing cool footing.
There are some hills but they are not overly steep and most pedestrians can get up and down the slopes without too much difficulty. A mobile home park is located on the northwest corner of the community and there are several parks in the region.
Inspiration Point Park is located on the west side of Regis and provides an elevated greenway with open areas, views, and a great paved walking trail for you and your pup to check out that is about 1 mile in length. A short trip to the southwest lies the Berkeley Lake Park which can be accessed on Tennyson Street. This park has a trail around a lake to stroll with your pup and a dedicated dog park of about two acres where your pooch can play off-leash.
To the south is the Rocky Mountain Lake Park. This park has a large lake with a paved 1-mile trail around it to walk or run with your canine companion. Tennis courts, baseball fields, athletic fields, horseshoe pits, restrooms, and a playground are other amenities available here.
On the north side of Regis is the Lowell Ponds State Recreational Area which has several ponds and the Clear Creek running through the area.
