The 'downtown' region of Syracuse is an expansive area, stretching from New Court Avenue down past the 481. However, downtown proper is agreed upon as the region around Armory Square and along S. Salina St. The city itself is a huge hub of education, economics, and travel. As the 5th most populated city in New York, you can expect a good deal of hustle and bustle on the streets downtown. Speaking of the streets, you'll find brick and cobblestone bordering them along Salina from Fayetteville to Church St. 


Downtown hosts a myriad of attractions: museums, theatres, parks, and pubs. Despite its size, Syracuse still has a small town feel with historic buildings of stone and brick as opposed to steel and glass high rises. While it does get a little hot in the summer months, the climate sits at bearable temperatures most of the year. Be sure to check your forecast for rain, especially in the winter months.

The topography is pretty flat within the city of Syracuse, especially downtown. The terrain is mostly artificial in that there's not a lot of landscaping or greenways. However, Syracuse is pretty wide open. You won't feel enclosed by tall, towering buildings or stifled by crazy traffic and swarms of people. It is a busy city but the shorter buildings and historic vibes keep it feeling peaceful. There are occasional little trees peppered into the cityscape but you'll have to head to a park or walk along Onondaga Creek to find mother Earth. Along the creek, there are beautifully landscaped sidewalks with seating options and occasional public art to enjoy with your pup at your side. Check out Columbus Circle for some history, landscaping, and monuments amidst the downtown region and marvel at the beautiful Cathedral of Immaculate Conception. With all of these amenities, you might forget that you're sitting in the middle of New York City.

There are actually quite a few options for you downtown if you're looking for some grass to frolick in, the first of which is Leavenworth Park. Leavenworth is the northwest corner of downtown along Park Avenue. It's a beautiful two-block stretch of bright green grass and colorful trees, all surrounding a wonderful fountain in its center. If you're on the west side of Downtown, Lipe Art Park is pretty small and not necessarily ideal for your doggy to play in but it's a cool attraction to check out of you're nearby. 


Closer to the heart of downtown, you have Perseverance Park. This spot is small and is a good place to stop and rest if you get tired, as it offers shade and seating. 


The largest option for you downtown is the Firefighter's Memorial Park. Located at S. State St. and E. Fayette St., this park offers partial enclosure,  pleasant shade, and a quiet spot to chill out with your pup.
