Buena Vista West is a moderate community located just south of Little Haiti in Miami. It is mostly a residential neighborhood with many of the homes dating back to the 1920s. Despite being an older section of the city filled with historic homes, the residents here take pride in keeping the town clean and safe. There are plenty of sidewalks for you and your pup to take your daily walk on. There are several restaurants within the community offering a wide range of cuisines for you to sample.
Being a residential neighborhood, going for a walk can be a pleasure and give you a chance to meet many of your neighbors along the way. The weather in Buena Vista West is gorgeous all year long with January lows in the 60s, summer highs in the 80s to 90s, and over 250 days of sunshine. You and your pup should find time to walk on most days.
Buena Vista West is bordered on the west side by the I-95 Express and by 195 to the south. The terrain within this community is flat and somewhat uninteresting, at least from a dog's point of view. Most of what you will find here for the two of you to walk on will be the many miles of sidewalk running through the community. While these run adjacent to the streets without a grass berm, it's still better than having to walk on the streets.
The good thing here is that there are dozens of residential blocks for you to add into your daily strolls. You can use them to create different walking patterns that will help keep your dog from becoming overly bored and complacent with your daily strolls. Bear in mind that during the hottest months, the pavement can reach high temperatures during the heat of the day which are hot enough to severely damage your pup's paws.
While the yards here are large and there are plenty of sidewalks, the one thing lacking is green spaces. There are two small parks up against the Expressway, but these are small enough that only small dogs are likely to get any real exercise.
Over on the shores of Biscayne Bay sits Morningside Park that runs alongside Biscayne Bay for a full five blocks. Not only does this park have tennis courts, a swimming pool, a baseball field, and a playground, it also offers picnic tables, benches, plenty of walking trails for you to explore, and plenty of grass and trees. You can't ask for a nicer place for you and your dog to go for a nice day out in the sunshine! Why not pack everyone a picnic and take the whole family for a day of swimming, picnicking, and fun while letting your dog stretch their legs and get in some much-needed exercise?
