The idea of a quiet, laid-back neighborhood anywhere in New York seems counter-intuitive, especially one that is convenient to the downtown areas ofthe city. But this is what residents say about Baychester and this, combined with quaint houses with actual yards, tends to bring credibility to the idea that Baychester is a special neighborhood. Shopping and restaurants are within walking distance and so are your pup's essentials as well as a grooming salon close by.

Weather in Baychester has four different seasons and walking is possible from spring to fall with the exception that walking on the humid days of mid-summer may take some extra care to protect your pup from the heat. Winters can go both ways. It can be very cold and snowy, making walking difficult, or it can be mild and pleasant. It just depends on the weather patterns each year! Most likely, you'll see a mix of days where walking is possible for part of winter.

Minor elevation changes are about all that you will see in Baychester. It really is the best possible walking terrain, especially if you are hoping that walking your dog will help you take off a few pounds as well. For people just starting out, if the terrain is too challenging, they will quickly get discouraged and stop walking. For dogs, the consequences are even more serious. They cannot tell you if the course you have set is too much and, if you are not watching for signs, they will faithfully follow you despite however much it might be hurting them. If your dog starts to lag behind, limp, or is panting excessively, you should give them a break, give them some water, and head home.

Fortunately, most of the streets here have sidewalks with grassy shoulders so Fifi can spend a bit of your walk time exploring the smells and maybe even stop for a roll in the grass.

To the southeast of Baychester is a huge complex of greenways that include many trails that are open to people, horses, and dogs. On the west side of the Hutchinson River is a large greenway called Pelham Bay Park that surrounds I-95 and the Bronx and Pelham Pkwy interchange. There are a variety of trails that run through this area and lots of green grass and trees. 

On the other side of the Hutchinson River, the park continues. There is a large area designated as an off-leash space where you can let your pooch run. They'll need to stay away from the playgrounds an on a leash outside of this space, however. 

Just north of Baychester is one final park for you to try out: Seton Falls Park. A man-made waterfall, walking paths, and lots of grass and trees make this a peaceful place to walk away from the crowds of the city.
