West Roxbury is a mix of flat blocks of homes and winding hills. The neighborhood spans a little more than four square miles, so you're likely to encounter a small hill or two along your walk. If you're planning on going out for a long walk, be sure to wear comfortable shoes! It's a diverse community and you can choose to stick around Centre Street, explore the residential areas, or spend your time at one of West Roxbury's idyllic parks. 

Many of the roads in the neighborhood feature shady trees along the paths and Centre Street has benches along the sidewalk in case you need a rest. While it's a very walkable region, there are several busy parkways that travel through West Roxbury. While they have sidewalks protected from the roads by tree-lined verges, always stay cautious of your pet in such areas to avoid any serious incidents with traffic.
