Corktown is a Detroit neighborhood listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The area, located just minutes west of downtown where multiple amenities and services are located, also has its businesses within easy reach. Trendy restaurants, bars, live music, boutiques, and unique shops are located, mostly along Michigan Avenue, where residents can stroll.


The City Bark Pet store, a highly rated pet supply shop, is located downtown about a 30-minute walk for Corktown pups and their people.  


Detroit experiences all four seasons, so you will need various outdoor gear to be comfortable. Winters are cold with snow and wet weather can occur all year round. A rain jacket and umbrella are recommended, so your daily walks with your pooch don't get rained out. Summers are warm and occasional heat waves can make walking strenuous. On very hot, humid days, choose to walk earlier or later in the day or take multiple short jaunts instead of one long one.

Corktown is a historic urban neighborhood bounded by the Fisher Freeway on the north, the Lodge Freeway on the east, Rosa Park Boulevard on the west, and Bagley and Porter Streets on the southside. 


Corktown is a mixed-use area with light industrial activity, including a Ford Motor campus, commercial businesses, and residential dwellings. Residential homes consist of a variety of structures such as row houses, loft apartments, and detached homes. This historic district features a variety of distinct architecture dating back to the 1800s. The residential areas are well landscaped with beautiful mature trees. Commercial and industrial areas are more open with less landscaping and more trafficked areas.  


The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills or inclines. There are separate sidewalks for pedestrians throughout the district, so people and pets don't have to share the road with vehicles. The freeways on the north and east sides create an impediment to on foot travel, but can be crossed on overpasses with pedestrian ways.

A little to the south, you can take your dog to the West Riverfront Park where access to the Detroit Riverwalk is provided. The Riverwalk is a 3.5-mile multi-use trail which is a great place for a walk with your pup. 


If you are looking for off-leash fun, you can walk to two fenced off-leash dog parks and one designated unfenced dog park. The Detroit Dog Park is located about a 20-minute stroll to the west and has a double gated enclosed area. To the northeast is the Grand Circus Dog Park. This large enclosed dog park has many events and activities and is open from 6AM to 10PM. Another local dog park is Capital Dog Park, however, it is not fenced.
