Grandview South sits alongside the Scioto River and I-670. The bulk of this section of Grandview is commercial and industrial, but the Grandview Apartments sit right next to the lake and I-671, close to where it connects with I-70. Thanks to this, commuting into the city is short and sweet depending on the time of day.
Ohio State University is less than twenty minutes to the north and, as a result of being in university territory, there are plenty of places to eat and a number of bars and clubs to sample. There are dog parks within driving distance that are perfect for taking the family and your pooch to on a beautiful warm summer day.
With summers in the mid-80s and only the occasional rainy day, you and Fido can spend all summer long checking out the many different places to play in the area and hiking the trail running along the river bank.
The terrain is flat and a blend of residential, commercial, and open areas of scrub to play on. There are sidewalks running all through the complex and plenty of grass for your pup to enjoy. But once you get out of the apartment complex, you have nothing but roads underfoot. This brings with it the need to do everything you can to be safe including walking against oncoming traffic and wearing reflective and light-colored clothing.
Going for walks in the winter while there is snow and ice on the sidewalks can make them slippery and hazardous to walk on, even for your pooch. Since they still need their walks, try starting them out in doggy booties at a young age so that they know all about wearing them and are comfortable in them by the time winter sets in. Your dog's paws are sure to appreciate it!
While the nearest parks are a short drive away, there is a footpath leading to several areas of grass along the Scioto River. These make great places for you and your pooch to step off the path and have some fun together. The trail runs for many miles along the riverbank and, if you follow it far enough, it will take you to the Scioto Greenway where there are several trails and parks to check out.
If you are looking for an off-leash dog park, the nearest one is the Wheeler Dog Park inside Wheeler Memorial Park. This dog park offers two separate fenced-in areas. Each section is large with plenty of room for dogs to run around off-leash and water fountains for the dogs to help keep them hydrated while they play. Wheeler Park also offers room for you to relax in the shade while Fido runs around with their newfound friends.
