Springfield Gardens is in a triangular neighborhood in the Southeastern area of Queens, bordered by Brookville on one side and Rochdale on another. On the third side, Springfield Gardens borders John F. Kennedy International Airport. Springfield Gardens is adjacent to the lovely Idlewood Park which leads into Hook Creek wildlife sanctuary.
Sidewalks in the area are divided from the street by wide grassy dividers studded with mature trees. You'll feel comfortable walking your dog on a loose leash through most of these residential streets, especially since traffic tends to be on the lighter side. These long, straight blocks are also a great place to enjoy rollerblading, skateboarding, or bicycling with your dog.
Springfield Park offers a pleasant place for you to walk with your pup, with the wide paths and its lovely walking trails. If you're looking for more adventure, you can cross the boundary of Springfield Gardens into Idlewild Park, leading you into miles of a boggy landscape.
Walking through Springfield Gardens is quite pleasant, with the historic homes set behind well-manicured yards and sidewalks well separated from the streets.
