Located on the East Shore of Staten Island, Grasmere-Concord is a suburban neighborhood of New York. The area has always been one of the most respected parts of the Big Apple with the zone around Brady’s Pond remaining exceptionally affluent.
Brady’s Pond Park, Grasmere Lake and Cameron Lake, as well as Naples Playground, are all dog-friendly areas to take your pooch. There are plenty of pet-friendly cafes, as well as green initiatives to combine the community and green spaces.
The weather in Grasmere-Concord in summer is beautiful with highs of 85 degrees Fahrenheit and rain only seven days out of the month at this time of year. During the winter, there is little rainfall as well, however, the temperature can drop below 32 degrees and, therefore, also encourages plenty of snowfall. The snowy winters mixed with the reds and oranges in autumn make the area picturesque all year round.
The area remains mostly suburban with housing lining each street. With this comes vegetation and grass lining the sidewalks. This is a great area to walk your little pup as they will not only feel safe out of the hustle and bustle of Central New York, but they'll also have green spaces to run their little feet along. The buildings and houses are typically two stores high, therefore providing a relief from the big city.
The neighborhood is mostly flat with slight ridges and curves in the road, however, the area remains largely accessible for everyone. This neighborhood is a great example of combining urban with residential and hosts plenty of areas to walk your pup away from the roads. Walk along the sidewalks under the shade of the trees or find a bench to have a rest while watching the community go about their daily routine.
Brady’s Pond Park is the largest green space in the area and is a city sanctuary away from the bustling urban center. As confirmed in the name, there is a large pond at the center of the park and it's extremely inviting for you and your pup to take a stroll around. The area is a designated wildlife refuge, so sit back and relax while watching the protected birds and mammals.
Naples Playground is to the southwest of the neighborhood and is a great place to walk your pooch. The area is built so it is enclosed and is ideal for training your pup to play fetch or recall without the fear of them running away. It is also an ideal spot for a picnic as the area has benches and tables and is easily set up for a wonderful lunchtime. Trees line the park and also provide some light relief from the sun during hot summer.
