Brainerd is a neighborhood in South Central Chicago. This residential neighborhood has an industrial area associated with the train tracks running through it that is not a pedestrian-friendly area. However, further to the west, Ashland Avenue features a commercial area with shops, services, and restaurants which locals in the western part of the area can travel to on foot. Another main road in Brainerd, 95th Street to the south, also has some services that are within walking distance for residents. Walking the neighborhood with your dog will require keeping an eye on the weather and being aware of the season. Chicago has all four distinct seasons and weather conditions and temperature vary depending on the time of year. Winter is cold and snowy, spring can be wet, and summers tend to be hot and humid. Thunderstorms are possible, especially in spring. Be prepared for weather conditions, dress appropriately, and avoid extreme weather when traveling on foot.

This neighborhood is bordered by 95th Street to the south, Beverly Boulevard to the west, 89th Street to the north, and Robichaux Park on its eastern border. The 'L train' tracks run along the northern border and there are train tracks along the busy thoroughfare of Vincennes Avenue which runs through the community. The terrain in the area is artificial, developed, and mostly flat, with streets following a predominately grid pattern. Residential regions have beautiful homes, grassy boulevards, sidewalks, shady trees, large lawns, and gardens on private properties of single-family residences. There are a few main thoroughfares running through and bordering Brainerd with commercial areas, churches, schools, a library, and other services. Traffic in these areas is more substantial than in the quiet residential side streets of Brainerd and requires more vigilance when walking your dog to ensure that motorists see your much shorter four-legged friend at crosswalks, intersections, and when traversing parking lot exits.
