Gravesend is a lovely neighborhood in the South Central area of Brooklyn that borders the Gravesend Bay on one side and the neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay on the other. This is a large neighborhood with long straight streets composed of primarily single-family homes or duplexes, as well as low apartment buildings, along tree-lined streets. There is little if any space between housesĀ and most homes have only very small front yards or stoops. There is no divider between the sidewalk and street on most streets, and roads tend to be congested with vehicle traffic. You can walk your dog on a close leash on Gravesend, but you'll probably want to head for a nearby park if you plan to skateboard, rollerblade, or bicycle with your dog.

It isn't difficult to escape from the city streets in Gravesend, with several regional parks, as well as more extensive green space near the water. Regional parks like the lovely Scarangella Park with its wide grassy areas and lots of tree cover and the beautiful Calvert Vaux Park on the water can provide plenty of places for you to enjoy a natural space with your dog.

Because the closely spaced single-family homes tend to push onto the narrow sidewalks of Gravesend, this is not the best neighborhood to walk with your dog on a loose leash for the most part. While there are some planned communities in this neighborhood that provide grassy or walking areas that are separated from the road, for the most part, this is a neighborhood where you need to keep your dog on a close leash.

To get a little more room to explore with your dog and let her wander on a loose leash, you can visit Scarangella Park, with its lovely tree covered walking paths that surround the grassy sports fields. For more room and a beautiful walk, you can head towards the water of Gravesend Bay. The Calvert Vaux Park is composed largely of ballparks but also offers a lovely natural area that runs right up to the water so that you can explore a beautiful natural shoreline with your dog.

While you can find an escape from the city at regional parks in Gravesend like the lovely Scarangella park, for the best escape from the city and enjoyment of a natural environment, head towards the Calvert Vaux Park and its beautiful natural shoreline. You can walk on the extensive paths surrounding the ballparks of Calvert Vaux Park, or head towards the waterside for a natural walk beside the shoreline. This area is allowed to grow wild with all kinds of low shrubbery and grassy areas as well as a natural rocky shoreline and some beachy areas as well. Your dog will love to explore this natural shoreline and sniff around at the new discoveries that the water brings there every day. You will love letting your dog walk on a loose leash and enjoy the cool breezes coming off the bay, especially on hot New York days. You can walk along the shoreline for a surprisingly long way, as it changes from rocky shoreline to lovely sandy beach. Your dog will love running on the soft sand, and you will enjoy a chance to enjoy the beach as well.
