Woodlawn is a middle-class residential neighborhood with a strong Irish heritage. The neighborhood is sometimes referred to as Woodlawn Heights and is located on the northern tip of the Bronx. Many Irish restaurants, pubs, and clubs are located throughout the neighborhood, especially along Katonah Avenue which runs through the middle of the community and provides Irish community organizations for residents to access right in the heart of the community. McLean Avenue is the main commercial corridor nearby and is within walking distance of many residents. Like much of New York, many residents rely on public transportation or the ability to walk to access local businesses and Woodlawn is no exception. The weather in New York is relatively temperate due to its location near the ocean, however, winters can be cold and wet and you will need to dress for inclement weather when it occurs by using jackets, sweaters, and boots when necessary.

Woodlawn is a well-defined neighborhood with a commercial corridor to the north, the Bronx River to the east, and VanCorland Park on the west side. Woodlawn has some hilly terrain but most inclines are not abrupt or particularly steep. However, when walking the neighborhood with your dog, you both may experience some climbs with elevation changes. You may need to plan your route before you head out for the day in order to avoid any unnecessary strain or overexertion in these different areas. This neighborhood is mostly residential with single-family homes, duplexes, and multi-story walk-up apartments. Many homes feature unique historical architecture and houses may have covered verandas, balconies, and even turrets. Properties are well landscaped and there are plenty of trees along roadways. There are commercial corridors running along the north and south borders of the community, and the main thoroughfare, with unique Irish businesses in the area.

Woodlawn is bordered by Van Cortlandt Park. At more than one thousand acres, this park is the third largest park in New York City. The park has several main greenways, some of which are paved, and others are natural dirt paths. Trails include the 1.5 mile Putnam Trail, The Old Croton Aqueduct Trail,  the John Kieran Nature Trail, the John Muir trail, and the Cass Gallagher Nature Trail which extends through rocky terrain and thickly forested areas. Van Cortlandt Park also features an enclosed dog run where your pup can play and socialize with other dogs off-leash. 


As a unique hidden greenway, Muskrat Cove runs adjacent to the parkway and is named for its Muskrat population living in the stream located there. This park has pathways for residents to explore, but keep your dog leashed so they don't take off after a muskrat and end up soaked in the stream!
