Mid City is a fifteen-minute commute west of the central New Orleans business district. The area is mostly residential with many commercial thoroughfares on the borders and transecting the neighborhood that is home to local businesses, shops, restaurants, and bars that cater to residents who can reach these venues on foot. 


There are two pet stores and several veterinary clinics in the area for pet owners to walk to. The neighborhood also has greenway trails and is considered very walkable. 


Dog owners in Mid City do not have to bundle up in winter months as sub-freezing temperatures are rare. New Orleans does have some rain and rain gear should be kept handy for wet days. Heat and humidity factor into physical activity in summer months and can result in heat-related illnesses if precautions are not taken. Make sure you and your pup stay hydrated, find shady locations for longer treks, and walk at cooler times of the day.

Mid City is bordered by the Pontchartrain Expressway on the south side, Orleans Avenue on the north, City Park Avenue on the west, and South Broad Avenue on the east. The area has an elevation of zero feet above sea level and was adversely affected by flooding during Hurricane Katrina. Since then, much of the area has been redeveloped and rebuilt, but some initiatives are still ongoing. 


This is a historic district with much older vintage homes with attractive architecture and beautiful private properties. Huge mature trees line streets and create a shady canopy over local roadways, providing both shelter and beauty. Local streets have sidewalks along roads, so people and pets don't have to share the road with traffic and the terrain is flat with no steep hills to climb when walking with your dog. 


Several main commercial thoroughfares transect Mid City including Canal Street which bisects the community and has a streetcar route along it. Carrollton Avenue and Tulane Avenue also run through the region.

City Park is situated on Mid City’s north side and provides 1,300 acres of beautiful greenway. Developed in 1854, this historic park is home to 600-year-old oak trees and local flora and fauna. There are waterways and ponds stocked with fish with boat rentals available for the water. There are miles of intersecting trails for walking with your leashed pet. 


An enclosed dog park in City Park has separate areas for large and small dogs and occupies 4.6 acres of the greenway. There are pools for pups to cool off, drinking fountains for people and pets, waste disposal facilities and supplies, and shady seating areas with walking paths in the enclosed area. Your dog must be permitted to use the park and visitor passes are available to ensure that your pooch is fixed and vaccinated. 


The Lafitte Greenway runs east-west through the area and provides a hiking and biking path in the neighborhood that leashed pets can use as does the Jefferson Davis Trail which extends north to south.
