Howard Beach is a largely residential neighborhood located in Queens, New York. Most of the neighborhood is home to upper-middle-class families in standalone, single-family homes. There is also a prominent strip of restaurants and local businesses on the east side of the neighborhood. There, you will find a gym, a national coffee chain, a grocery store, a hotel, and local restaurants. There is also an animal clinic located on Cross Bay Boulevard, just in case your furry friend is due for a check-up! The west side of the neighborhood is home to a large greenway. 

Howard Beach, like the rest of coastal New York, experiences all four seasons. Unfortunately, winter can be a bit brutal with several long and cold months with significant snowfall. The summers can be extremely hot and humid. This is particularly important to watch because those hot summer days can lead to burning hot pavement which may hurt your pup's sensitive paw pads.

While there is only one greenway in Howard Beach, it takes up at least a fourth of this coastal neighborhood! Spring Creek Park is most well-known for being home to undeveloped wetlands and for being a great location for bird watching! This large park also has public cricket fields and a biking and running trail. This would be a perfect spot for you and Fido to explore when you're looking for a more adventurous or longer walk. You'll want to exercise some caution in this area, however, as some of the park's terrain can be a little rough. 

Other nearby parks include Charles Memorial Park and Hamilton Park, - both part of the larger area known as Gateway National Recreation Area- Starrett City Park, Fresh Creek Nature Preserve, Linden Park, Centreville Playground, and Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. The closest enclosed dog park is three miles to the north of Howard Beach, located in Forest Park.
