Cranbrook is a residential neighborhood located in northwest Columbus, Ohio. There are no local businesses, convenience shops, or eateries within walking distance and residents have to use a vehicle to reach stores and restaurants. There is, however, some health services and a school on the south side within walking distance and a hospital on the northeast corner.  


When walking your canine companion in Cranbrook, you may experience a variety of weather conditions and not all are pedestrian-friendly. Severe thunderstorms can occur during the warmer months and it is important to be aware of winds, electric activity, hail, and heavy rain. Summers, however, do not get too hot and heat-related illnesses are not an issue most of the time. Blizzards and winter storms with freezing temperatures and icy conditions are hazardous for pedestrians on icy walkways. When walking your dog in winter, avoid severe weather, dress warmly in good footwear, and keep outings short.

Cranbrook is bordered by Broadway on the north side, Kenny Road on the west side, Ackerman Road on the south, and the Olentangy Freeway on the east. The Slyh Run Creek runs roughly east-west through the neighborhood and has a small ravine associated with it. On the south side of the region, there are large agricultural properties and open, aerated fields which give this region a rural feel.  


Most of the Cranbrook community is made up of single-family homes in a variety of styles, with some older and some newer structures. There is a condominium complex on the south side. Private properties are well landscaped with green lawns, shade trees, and attractive gardens. Residential roads have sidewalks and grassy berms providing safe, separate walkways for pedestrians and their pets. The area is relatively level with only some gentle inclines that are not difficult to climb up and do not present an impediment to walkers.

The creek running through Cranbrook has a greenway associated with it and natural wooded areas. Dog walkers can walk their pets in the vicinity of the creek to enjoy the trees, water, and greenery.  


The Smith Nature Park is located a short walk to the west. This four-acre park has sports fields and facilities, picnic tables, and barbecue grill sites. There is a wooded nature trail for strolls with your pup. The park is a designated off-leash dog park after 8 PM and before 8 AM during the summer and after 5 pm in the winter. To take advantage of this off-leash privilege, ensure your dog has good recall and socialization. 


 A short drive south is a large recreational greenway with multiple sports fields and facilities. Fred Beekman Park has lots of open areas, however, dogs are not permitted on sports fields when in use. Pedestrian paths are good places for a stroll to take in the local activities.
