Locate in north Spokane, Hillyard is a mixed-use neighborhood which was previously a separate town dating back to the late 1800s. As such, this is a historic district with older buildings. A unique commercial strip, Market Street, is situated on the west side of the rail tracks and lined with local stores and restaurants, antique shops, and pubs that are easily accessible on foot.  


There are murals and a railroad museum located here and a larger commercial and light industrial area situated east of the train tracks that is less walkable. The Hillyard Aquatic Center and nearby schools are also within reach for pedestrians walking in the area.  


Pet owners that enjoy walking with their furry friends year around will need warm winter gear as winter months experience sub-freezing temperatures. Be careful of slippery walkways where you or your pet could become injured. Summer months are warm and more pleasant for walking with little rain.

This is a developed neighborhood with a long history and there are many older buildings and historical structures in the area that give the region a unique vibe. Train tracks run north-south through the region and divide the neighborhood into two sections, a light industrial and commercial area on the east and residential area on the west with some local businesses near the tracks on the old main street.  Be careful crossing the train tracks and choose marked, controlled pedestrian crossings. 


The residential area has older character homes that are modest in size but have large properties with lawns, trees, and backyards backing onto laneways. Most streets have separate sidewalks and grassy berms for dog walkers and their pets to travel on, creating safe walkways where pedestrians do not have to share the road with traffic. The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills to negotiate for dogs and people with mobility issues.

There are several neighborhood parks in the Hillyard area. The Jim Hill Park is centrally located in the residential section and has a playground, lots of shade trees, and walking trails to stroll with your dog.  Near the tracks is Harmon Field which has athletic fields and a skateboard park. There is a paved path with circular features and shelters. Basketball courts are also located here. 


Kehoe Park is located to the south. This park is mostly open without a lot of shade trees, so may not be as desirable on a hot day, but it has open areas to play and run. To the west, Hillyard residents can reach Rochester Park which has open and treed spots, rolling hills, basketball courts, and paved pedestrian paths. 


Hays Park is in the adjacent community to the south and this slightly larger park provides just under 8 acres of greenery with trees, trails, and amenities for dog walkers in the region.
