The Niagara Falls neighborhood is home to the American side of the famous Niagara Falls, a wonder of the world. It lies along the Niagara River, across from Ontario, Canada, and thirty minutes outside of Buffalo. The city itself, while densely populated in most areas, provides many small parks and accessible neighborhoods for dog walkers. Parks offer a variety of settings and engagement for your dog.

The weather is often dependent upon the season, although the proximity of Niagara Falls to the river must be kept in mind if walking or traveling during inclement weather. The winters can be bitterly cold and mixed with heavy snowfall and high winds, thus you should exercise caution. Spring and summer are often comfortable but can also be rainy or hot and humid. Autumn is a spectacular time of year to walk as it is often cool and pleasant and the changing foliage is a beautiful accompaniment to any walk.

Niagara Falls' residential areas are quaint and dense with plenty of shade offered by older, established trees and sidewalks for smooth passage. The majority of these walking areas are flat, although some sidewalks and streets are worn and cracked, so watch where you are stepping with your dog. The hillier areas of the city can be found in the parks and along a few side streets, but walking in these areas can be managed with ease. 


Many of the homes in the city are older colonials with landscaped yards and gardens. Walking near or around Niagara Falls Boulevard, closer to the main shopping, retail, and travel strip, should be carefully done as vehicles travel at high speeds along this roadway. Keep your pup on a leash and pay special attention to other pedestrians and traffic as you explore. In the summer, watch for hot pavement which can effect sensitive paws.

While there is no off-leash dog park in Niagara Falls, there are a few city parks that allow dogs on-leash that offer walking trails and gorgeous views. For a quieter walk, consider small parks like Jerauld Park or the Duck Island park, both of which provide areas to walk and observe wildlife. Larger parks like Hyde Park offer more room to run and walk as well as provide restrooms. 


The jewel of Niagara Falls parks is the Whirlpool State Park which has two levels to walk: the upper street level which includes plenty of accessible walking trails with incredible views of the whirlpool and rapids, and the staircase that leads down to the Whirlpool itself. It is recommended that dog walkers stay on the upper level for walks as the staircase is steep and too difficult for dogs to navigate. Despite the trickier layout, the area is fantastic for any outing.
