Jackson Heights is located in the northwestern section of Queens, New York and was founded in 1859. The name is not due to its elevation but eludes to a certain highness of being or exclusiveness. As you stroll down the street, you will pass many residential areas, consisting of single family homes, multi-family homes, condos, row houses and apartment buildings. You will also pass many area businesses and several area theaters such as the Eagle theater that was opened in 1936 between 73rd and 74th Streets. Are you and your pup hungry? There are so many places to choose from, from Indian to diners to Cuban to Italian. If you are in the mood for some fresh veggies or fruit and you are nearby Travers Park, check out the year-round green market open every Sunday. With so many amenities as well as the Jackson Heights Historic District to explore, there are always things to see and do while you're on your daily outing with your pup.

Jackson Heights is about as flat as they come. With no changes in elevation, the neighborhood makes for a poor location for hiking or any real extensive exercise. However, with its grid layout and urban feel, you can certainly look forward to taking long walks with plenty of things to see and do while you're out for the day. However, you'll want to be a little bit cautious, as New York weather in the summer can mean that the pavement can get too hot for sensitive paw pads. 


Thankfully, Jackson Heights' artificial terrain can be broken up here and there by some of the smaller green spaces that act as small playgrounds or tiny fields which are good for a quick break from the hard asphalt and concrete. Just be sure to check the local rules and regulations, as you may need to keep your dog on his leash while visiting.

Jackson Heights' Travers Park was dedicated in 1949 and named in honor of Thomas J. Travers, a renowned community leader. There are plenty of places for you and your pup to rest after your day of exploring the big city! The park can be found between 77th and 78th Street on the north side of 34th Avenue. The park is tree-lined and has plenty of perennials, shrubs, and many benches to rest on while you soak in all that fresh air! Be sure your pup stays on his leash while inside the park and you clean up after any messes he/she may leave behind. Besides basketball, tennis, handball, and a playground, Travers Park also offers a variety of free musical concerts known as Summer Sundays in the Park as well as a year-round farmers market on Sundays. Plenty to do and all day to do it - it's up to you and your furry friend!
