Innis Arden is a 20-minute drive north of the coffee-coveting city Seattle in a township called Shoreline. Shoreline offers its residents stunning views of both Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountain range, easy access to the city, and an award-winning community of golf courses and public schools. 

Due to the number of dog grooming and dog boarding businesses that are all within a 12-mile radius, this area makes a great spot for dog lovers. And you and Fido are sure to never be bored with the natural wonders the Pacific Northwest promises. Beaches, forests, mountains, waterfalls, the PNW has it all and this cozy neighborhood is no exception. Innis Arden rests west of Shoreline's center, hugging saltwater shores and boasting many local parks and nature preserves. 

However, while access to surrounding parks and walking trails is easy, getting to local businesses is certainly not a quick trip on foot. Trips to the grocery store, gas station, or shopping mall will be at least 10-minute car rides and at most 30 to 40. Due to both the poor infrastructure and large population Seattle and its suburbs are known for, you may want to be prepared for a little traffic.

This neighborhood was born in the 1940's and due to strict local laws, little to no infrastructure improvements have taken place since. Much of the residential areas may have bike lanes, but sidewalks are rare, unless along major roads. Despite this, there aren't any sharp curves and stop signs are at several intersections, so even without sidewalks, it is a relatively safe place to walk a dog. 

Due to its decline into sea level, a fair amount of the area is flat, or at least, not steep, but hills do exist, making Shoreline homes look as if they are stacked on top of each other from a distant view. If you weren't up for a hill, or your dog either isn't a fan of them or is healing from an injury that would make it difficult for them, you can just as easily choose a nearby path that'll take you on a decline rather than incline. Any hiking done within greenways of this area will be a little more challenging, however, as they all contain some form of steep inclination. 

A majority of Innis Arden residents are either retired or young families, so you'll find that people tend to lead a quieter suburban lifestyle. There's also a local community college in the area, so it's not unlikely during your walks that you'll stumble upon fellow walkers, as a fair amount of citizens may not prescribe to 9-to-5 jobs.

Innis Arden Reserve Park has two trailheads and each trail is about a mile and a half. There are a number of bluffs in this reserve, giving you a chance to enjoy a view of ocean or mountains, but there can also be considerable flooding at lower points of elevation due to its proximity to the shore. The trails can be a little primitive, with some parts being wild and overgrown, however, some may see this as a strong point, calling it lush and natural. 

Even less tidy is the Strandberg Preserve, which is simply a nature preserve plopped in the middle of a residential area. Moderately defined paths take you through abundant greenery. 

Richmond Beach Saltwater Park is what some may call a hidden gem. Much like the Strandberg Preserve, its main entrances can only be found in the Innis Arden neighborhood, which is on top of the shore's bluffs. A sloping bridge or concrete stairs take you down to the beach. There's a small picnic area, with a table or two, trash cans, and restrooms. No bonfires are allowed, but dogs are welcome, as long as they're leashed!

If untamed forest and steep stair climbing isn't your cup of tea, we recommend Sunset Park. Also in the center of a neighborhood, Sunset Park is a partially fenced area which has a playground, a community garden, and short, easily-walked pathways. 

Lastly, there are Shoreview and Boeing Creek parks. A lot of this land was once owned by William Boeing - the aircraft mogul - in the 1920's. Initially utilized as a spot for him to fish and hunt, both parks are now funded and preserved by the Shoreline township. It offers mountain views to any adventurers ready for a moderate yet doable climb. Dogs are allowed as long as they are leashed and there's even a man-made lake (put there by Boeing for fishing).
