Summerhill is a centrally located neighborhood just southwest of the main business district of Atlanta, Georgia. A large baseball stadium is located here and there are hotels and businesses located near the stadium with some grocery and convenience stores also situated near the residential areas. There are also schools, parks, and churches within easy walking distance for pedestrians and pets. 


The weather in Atlanta is warm with cold temperatures being very rare. Fall weather tends to be beautiful for walking and a light jacket is usually sufficient for cooler temperatures with snow being very uncommon. Summer temperatures, however, can be very hot and humid and you will want to avoid activity in extreme heat as heat-related illnesses can occur if you and your pet are overexposed. Severe storms can also occur with high winds that present a hazard to dog walkers. Check the forecast and your daily walks with your pup accordingly.

Summer Hill is bordered by two large freeways on the north and west sides and these areas are not pedestrian-friendly with lots of traffic and noise. The west side is home to a baseball stadium and large paved parking lots which are exposed with no trees and dog walkers should opt for quieter, more sheltered residential areas to stroll. 


The neighborhood has a higher than average population density with some close-set homes and multi-family complexes and apartment buildings. The terrain has some hills which, although they are not especially steep, have some long inclines that can be strenuous to walk up during hot weather. Plan your walk according to you and your dog's abilities. 


Single-family homes in the area vary in architectural style with some older historic homes fronting residential roads that lend character and interest to the neighborhood. Residential sections have lots of trees and well-landscaped yards providing greenery and vegetation in the neighborhood.
