Interactions of this kind are bound to happen frequently in this small area, so keep yourself and your dog safe by staying alert and aware of your surroundings.
Shoshone Park on Main Street and Hertel Avenue is a favorite neighborhood spot for walkers and families. The park is medium-sized and has direct access to the North Buffalo Rails to Trails walking path that leads to the nearby town of Tonawanda. McCarthy Park, between Main Street and East Amherst Street, is home to multiple baseball fields for sports enthusiasts. The park features a walking path and plenty of green space, however, trees and shade are a rarity so have your sun gear ready and watch your dog for overheating and hot paws if you walk there on a hot day.
