Ridgewood Estates is a neighborhood split between Oak Park and Ferndale. It runs from Coolidge Hwy across to Central St. and from West Nine Mile Rd. down to Eight Mile Rd. Ferndale is a highly residential little city with an area just under four square miles. Oak Park has far more of the suburb feel. But you’re never too far from a city feel if you want to escape the burbs. 

Ridgewood Estates is a truly beautiful neighborhood. The houses are charming and have large, green front yards and sweeping shade trees. The majority of this nice residential area is in the most northern and southern sectors of the neighborhood. The center of the neighborhood is a commercial zone that doesn’t offer much in the way of accommodation for dog walking, so it would be best to walk east and west rather than north or south if you’d like to stay among the houses.

There's no need to fear being stifled by the city out here! Ridgewood Estates offers plenty of wildlife, wide open spaces, and fresh air. The topography of this area is quite flat so you can expect a nice relaxing stroll. Make sure to check your forecast for expectations of snow or rain as you don't want to be caught unawares. However, in the summer and fall, the weather should be near perfect and there are plenty of large trees to keep the sun off of you. The majority of grasses you'll be encountering are the front lawns of others, so make sure to remember your doggy bags and respect the residents of Ridgewood. Enjoy the oaks and gum trees, the classic American homes, and the peace and simplicity of the greater Detroit area as you traverse this flat, unimposing terrain which is perfect for walkers of all experience levels.

There aren't many greenway options within the confines of Ridgewood Estates.  RO TWP Park is a small lot near Wyoming and Cloverdale Avenues. It has a playground and is across the street from a school so walk with caution if you are walking a dog who doesn't do so hot around little ones. If you're looking for an enclosed lot to play in, Grant Park may be a better fit. It's just a few blocks East of RO TWP in between Glen Lodge and Westview on Cloverdale. 


There are a few other parks nearby that are outside of Ridgewood lines. The first of which is in Ferndale and is called Geary Park and sits two blocks north of W. Nine Mile along Central St. Geary Park is a simple, open grass lot but a great spot for fetch nonetheless. However, it is not enclosed, so you'll want to keep your pup on a leash.
