The city of Tonawanda is north of Buffalo, New York along the Niagara River. It is home to multiple parks and unique neighborhoods that are perfect for walking with a dog. Bordered by the city of Buffalo and North Tonawanda, the Tonawanda neighborhood lies along the waterfront and extends out into a series of older neighborhoods with tree-lined streets. The city is known for its many parks with walking trails including Niawanda Park, Gateway Harbor Park, Veterans Memorial Park, and Isle View County Park.

Because of Tonawanda's proximity to the Niagara River, spring, summer, and fall are comfortable and sometimes cooler along the water. If you are walking in the early morning or evening, a light jacket might be necessary. Winters can be harsh on the water with the impact of lake-effect snow which can make driving problematic. Make sure that you and your dog are wearing warm clothing appropriate for heavy snow and windy conditions.

Tonawanda offers highly walkable neighborhoods that are mostly flat and easy to navigate. There are no real avenues for a proper hiking challenge, so you may need to mix your walks up a bit each day to keep them varied and provide ample exercise for you and your pup if you are particularly active.


The surrounding homes are older buildings and are quaint with some artistic properties. There are also older colonials that are wonderful examples of Western New York architecture. The streets are lined with well-established trees which make these neighborhoods the perfect places to walk a dog on a warm day. Many of these houses also feature lovely gardens and landscapes. Along the river, there are well-maintained walking trails with both shady and sunny spots. The natural walkways provide a beautiful view of the river, local wildlife, and local flora for any nature enthusiast looking for scenic places to travel.
