There's even a pet supply shop located in the Ludlow Centre area, Dave's Soda and Pet City, where you can walk your dog for a treat or get your pet supplies. This area has a strong Portuguese community and several festivals are held in the area throughout the year celebrating the town and the Portuguese culture.

Ludlow is transected by the Massachusetts Turnpike which creates a barrier for pedestrians traveling in the district. If you are walking down the Center Street, there is a sidewalk along the road that intersects the turnpike at an underpass, allowing pedestrians to safely cross. A cemetery and country club are located in Ludlow and the main commercial corridor of Center Street is lined with businesses and has heavier traffic than surrounding residential areas, so it's important to keep your dog leashed in these areas.


There are some hilly areas in the neighborhood that will require a bit of a climb when walking but they are not too steep and usually do not present a major problem for pedestrians and pets. 


The north of Ludlow Centre features rural farmland and there are large natural areas to the east. The Chicopee River and Wallamanumps Falls are located on the southern border. Haviland Pond has residences backing onto it and a public beach.
