Atlanta weather is very amenable to on foot travel with warm springs and autumns and a few showers that will require a rain jacket. Winters are colder and wetter and a warm rain jacket will be an asset for dog walkers who like to take their dogs out regularly. Temperatures are rarely below freezing and snow is uncommon in the region. Summers are hot and humid, however, and when extreme heat and humidity occur, avoid overexertion or overexposing yourself or your dog.
Wesley Battle is a country residential area with well spread out homes on large rural properties. The area, including public and private properties, is heavily treed and well shaded in summer. There are three roads in the area with only 250 homes located mostly along W Wesley Road, Peachtree Battle Ave. NW and Bohler Road with a few short side spurs. Residential roads do not have separate pedestrian sidewalks and pedestrians need to share the road with local traffic. The terrain is heavily treed and hilly, so watch out for vehicles on area roadways.
Natural trails on and between area residential properties often have walking trails for locals and area canines, however, make sure you are aware of where private property lines exist and conditions on natural trails which vary with wet weather.
Maintained greenways can be reached near the Wesley Battle community. Atlanta Memorial Park is located a short drive to the east. This park has a large golf course and tennis center on the east side and lots of natural treed space to explore on the west. Hiking trails are prevalent in the park and can be enjoyed by you and your leashed pup. There is also a playground and sports fields in the park.
A trip to the south will take residents and their furry friends to the Westside Reservoir Park, a large natural area with a lake developed at the site of an old quarry. This park has acres of open space and miles of hiking trails to explore.
