Bankhead is a mixed-use neighborhood located centrally in Atlanta, Georgia on the west side of the downtown area. There are businesses located on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard that are within walking distance for area residents including a service station, grocery stores, local eateries, and several other services. 


Atlanta pedestrians and their pups experience peasant walking temperatures in the winter, spring, and fall. Winters are mild with temperatures usually well above freezing and little chance of snowfall. Summers are hot and humid and severe storms are a possibility. Temperatures in the Atlanta area often reach well into the 90-degree Fahrenheit range and, coupled with humidity, can be uncomfortable. Avoid walking with your dog during the height of the day when extreme heat occurs. Be aware that severe tornadoes and tropical cyclones are possible and do not venture out with your dog when these storms are imminent.

Bankhead is a mixed residential, commercial, and industrial neighborhood. The area is a long established and historic district located centrally just west of the business core and downtown area of Atlanta. 


The west side of the neighborhood has industrial and city services located throughout it and there is some undeveloped land along the Proctor Creek ravine. Natural areas usually make good places to stroll with your dog, but the industrial activity in the area may impede the walkability of this section of the neighborhood. There are very large shade trees throughout the neighborhood and properties have plenty of vegetation and greenery which provide shade and create a cool canopy for dog walkers on hot, humid summer days.


There are some gentle inclines in the neighborhood, but they do not usually present a problem. Retail streets do not always have separate sidewalks for pedestrians who must share the road with vehicles. Keep your dog leashed and walk facing oncoming traffic.
