Northcrest Park is located in the neighborhood to the west and within an easy walking distance. This 18-acre park has recreational facilities like tennis and basketball courts, sports fields, picnic tables, and a playground. A paved walking trail loops around this open park and makes a great dog walking destination.

A longer walk to the east will take you to the Olentangy River and the parkland located along the river banks. There are multiple greenways along the river connected by the Olentangy Trail. This trail is over 17 miles long and follows the river through wooded areas, over bridges, and through beautiful parks. The trail provides plenty of opportunity for exercise and sightseeing for you and your energetic pooch. It is hard surfaced and used by cyclists and inline skaters in summer and cross-country skiers in winter, so be considerate of other users, keep your dog leashed and off ski tracks, and clean up after your pet.
