Passaic is small in size but large in density. The city itself is relatively small but hosts a population of close to 70,000. Downtown Passaic is extremely central and runs along Main Avenue. It’s a pretty even split between local businesses and chains and there are a number of traditional spots that reflect the Latino and Eastern European populations such as Columbian, Peruvian, and Venezuelan restaurants. It’s a family-friendly area with a few schools and children’s shopping spots Downtown. Keep this and the dense population in mind as you set out on your walk. If you have a dog with anxiety in crowds or aggression towards children, it may be best to head to the outskirts of the city and into the more suburban areas away from Main Ave and Downtown. If that's not an issue, check out the underground pedestrian walkway, explore the locally owned businesses, or head south and take a walk along the Passaic River.

The elevated levels of Passaic are pretty tame. There are some multiple meter shifts in topography but it is very gradual. You'll very rarely recognize that you are on a slight incline or decline. As far as flora goes, this downtown is definitely urban. There's not a lot of spaces with rich landscaping but the city is really colorful, full of culture, and teaming with life. Those substitutes should suffice to satisfy your expectations of scenic views. If you head towards the river there are some natural and open areas with landscaping here and there. Not to mention, Passaic offers plenty of parks that you can venture to. 


The climate is nicest in the spring and fall but that's all subjective! Make sure you dress warm in the winter months, check forecasts for freezing and snow, and keep your dog in mind in all weather conditions. It rains about a week out of each month.

Pulaski Park is a wonderful place to visit and is located just a few blocks from the downtown area on the river bank between Monroe Wall Streets. Pulaski is only open from 7 am to 5 pm, so plan accordingly. Visit the park and grab a seat on the bleachers for a soccer game, watch the skaters do their thing, or post up under a tree for some playtime. Make sure you beware of the geese which can be a bit territorial! Don't let your dog off-leash, especially if they're a hunter or chaser. 


An even closer greenway is the Armory Park located at Main Avenue and Prospect Street. Armory Park is not as large or acclaimed as Pulaski but it is a revolutionary war site for all you dog-walking history buffs out there. There's a memorial to visit and plenty of nice shade trees around for you to enjoy with your pup at your side.
