Oakbrook is a great neighborhood on the northwest edge of Kannapolis. One of the great things about this neighborhood is the high number of veterinarians and pet hospitals in the area. This is great for residents with pets because they have the comfort of knowing that, should an emergency arise, their furry friend will be in very good hands. Some of the top hospitals in the area include Cabarrus Emergency Veterinary Clinic and Jenny Artman DVM. This area also has a large number of grooming options. Some great options include the Groom Shack and Paws Unlimited. 


Although this area is usually pretty moderate, hotter summer months may require some caution as the temperature can easily get up and into the 90s in the height of the warmer seasons. Rain may occur, but only rarely, so keep an eye on the forecast and take an umbrella with you if necessary to keep you warm and dry.

This area is, for the most part, very flat. Although it is possible to find some hilly areas within parks or suburbs if you really search, dog walkers in this region will primarily be on flat terrain. Although this can be unfortunate for those who love a hard workout or a good hike, there are perks to a more flat terrain. One of these perks is the ability to walk further distances than possible in a hilly region. Without the extra strain of hills, these walkers can travel to far away parks or their favorite walking path without worrying about overheating or becoming dehydrated. 


This area is also mostly artificial. Although there are some parks and greenways, most of them are man-made and surrounded by houses or buildings. Although this is, again, not ideal for serious nature enthusiasts, it can be a great place for anyone who is more accustomed to an urban or suburban environment.

Although there are not many options in this region, there are some amazing neighborhood parks that keep the community happy. The most unique of these locations by far is Village Park. This beautiful park features a splash pad with different age group separations, playgrounds, walking trails, picnic areas, and a cemetery that is separated from the rest of the park in a beautiful forested area. It is also home to the Kannapolis Parks and Recreation Department. 


Another great and more traditional option in this area is Baker's Creek Park. This park offers covered picnic tables, basketball and tennis courts, a creek, a playground, and even mini golf. 


A few final great options are Veterans Park, featuring a huge memorial for fallen veterans, as well as Walter M. Safrit Park which features walking and biking trails, picnic areas, and several large green fields that your dog will love running around in.
