Weather conditions in the region vary throughout the year. Dog walkers and their pups will want to have warm coats and footwear for sub-freezing temperatures during winter months. Light snow is the norm, but occasionally, heavier snow with storms systems occur. When severe winter weather is occurring, you should avoid long outdoor treks in favor of indoor exercise. Summer months see humid conditions that can result in heat-related problems. You and your dog should stay well hydrated and avoid overexertion. Thunderstorms are frequent in warmer months and can create dangerous conditions for exposed people and pets. Take shelter when severe storms are present.
When the neighborhood was developed, streets were built to curve around the hilly terrain and natural trees were preserved, making this a beautiful park-like setting for homes.
