Located next to the central hub of Buckhead is an affluent neighborhood named Peachtree Heights West. This community is just a walk away from Buckhead’s business district and is in close proximity to classy bars, restaurants, and clubs. The surrounding area prides itself on the stylish and modern art galleries, designer lofts, shops, and workspaces.
The neighborhood is home to lots of doggy-friendly amenities including Pet Supermarket, a specialist pet store within the eastern boundary.
During the long summers, bathe in the subtropical sun of Georgia and, throughout the short winters, enjoy the cool and mild temperatures. The ideal times to go walking is during the spring and autumn when the temperatures are cool enough to enjoy a sunny walk. In the winter, get prepared and bring some rain boots for splashing around in the few days that bring rain. In the summer, keep hydrated by visiting one of the many puppy-friendly cafes around Bennett Street.
Although a residential neighborhood, the community of Peachtree Heights West feels predominantly rural. When winding through the community’s network of roads, tall trees tower above the wide set streets and small patches of plants and flowers lay on the ground. The houses sit so far back that they are invisible to see from the road, making the neighborhood feel rather secluded. This adds to the natural sense and makes it a great walking location for your pup.
Although the roads bend and curve up and down the hills of the community, there is no particular point at which it gets very steep. Only small pockets of gradients are sprinkled over the neighborhood, making it extremely easy to walk around. Most of the streets do not have sidewalks, so particular care should be taken when walking along here. A helpful tip is to keep your pup on the leash until you get to an open green space.
Peachtree Heights West is home to Sibley Park. This is a small green space to the south of the community. It hosts plenty of great woodland trails, safe from the busy roads. This makes it perfect for taking your pup off the leash.
If you fancy a bigger park, Parkside Drive is only a ten-minute walk away from the area. This park not only holds large fields and footpaths, but also a pond. During early spring, the baby ducks and geese migrate to live here, creating a scenic and beautiful backdrop to your daily walk.
For a more substantial walk, Atlanta Memorial Park is only a ten-minute drive away. This is a whopping 200 acres of parkland full of hiking trails, picnic benches, and even the Peachtree Creek riverside walk. The whole space can take up to an afternoon to walk around, so it is great for a long weekend stroll.
