Bryant is a tiny neighborhood sandwiched between busier neighborhoods. It is known for being a slice of quiet in an urban area. Almost the entire neighborhood is residential with the exception of the perimeter running along Sandpoint Way.
While you won’t find much in the way of amenities for either you or your pooch, neither will you have far to go to get to them. What you lose in terms of convenience is more than made up for in walkability. You luckily have access to a local vet and there are a few restaurants, but if you are looking for a place to get treats for your pup, you will most likely have to hop in the car.
The weather in Seattle allows for walking most of the year. Even winter weather will not stop you from getting some fresh air. Temperatures stay moderate except for a few days each year and snow that sticks around is even more rare.
All the streets in this neighborhood have sidewalks and some of them are nicely shaded. Most of them also have grassy shoulders to give your pup a place to explore and do their business.
The neighborhood is very quiet in terms of traffic, so you won’t find yourself hung up by lights or lots of cars unless you stray near the main roads at the perimeters of the neighborhood. As long as you keep to the north of this area, you can expect little in the way of traffic to be concerned about.
There are two official greenways that you have access to in Bryant. One of them is a small park just off NE 65th Street called the Bryant Neighborhood Playground. Lots of trees, grass, and picnic benches make this a nice place to stop and give your pup a place to explore. More significantly is the Burke Gilman Trail and playground Park, located at the south end. The playground itself features 7 acres of park with jogging trails and large open grassy areas. This area provides you access to a large swath of greenway that runs along most parts of this trail.
Widely used by many of the locals, this is a popular trail for exercise of all kinds including exercising your pup. Not only is there more than enough space to keep you busy for as long as you want, but the trail also intersects with other trails, ensuring that your pup will run out of energy before you run out of places to roam.
