The terrain in Marion is mostly flat with curving roads intersecting at a variety of angles. There are no steep climbs to contend with when walking with your dog, but be sure you know where you're going, as roadways can be confusing. 


Most of the area consists of single-family and multi-family homes. There is also a housing complex, the Marion Gardens Housing Project. Many buildings are character homes and older commercial buildings, however, there has been some new development as well. Historical buildings display architectural features from their respective eras. Residential areas have plenty of landscaping, usually behind homes, with residences placed closely together and relatively near street fronts. There are trees along streets to provide shade when walking.  


A major freeway lies on the west side of the neighborhood and should be avoided when walking with your dog. Some light manufacturing and commercial areas that lack natural landscaping are not desirable pedestrian routes.
