The Marietta Street Artery is a unique, centrally located commercial district northwest of downtown Atlanta. The neighborhood contains historic buildings and areas with many industrial buildings and warehouses which are currently being repurposed as trendy eateries, art galleries, shops, and restaurants. The neighborhood is thick with services and businesses, all within easy walking distance for area locals. The region is quite commercial and was formerly industrial and not originally designed as a pedestrian-friendly zone. The development of the area has changed this somewhat, making the Marietta Street Artery more walkable. 

Atlanta weather is amenable to on foot travel with warm fall and spring seasons. Winters are relatively mild with few sub-freezing temperatures, but cool, wet weather does occur, necessitating rain gear and warmer outerwear. Snow and frigid temperatures are rare and rarely hamper dog walkers. Summers are hot and humid and you'll want to consider curbing strenuous activity when severe heat occurs.

The Marietta Street Artery is a highly developed urban neighborhood which was formerly an industrial area with buildings repurposed for commercial use. The rail line to the southwest impedes walking the area and should only be crossed at designated pedestrian crossings. There are no single-family homes in the community and locals reside in apartments with much of the area dedicated to commercial use. 

The terrain is mostly flat in the Marietta Street area with some hills on the outer boundary and adjacent neighborhoods. The Marietta Street Artery does not have a lot of natural landscaping. Cement surfaces that are not shaded can become very hot on summer days and burn your dog's sensitive paw pads. You can purchase doggie boots to protect your pup's paws from hot pavement if you live in a developed urban area. This neighborhood is very busy with lots of traffic and dogs should be used to noise, traffic, and other people.

These areas are within close walking distance for Marietta Street Artery residents and their pooches and make a good walking location.

Piedmont Park has miles of paved pedestrian trails for dog walkers to pursue with their pups. There are recreation areas and sports fields, playgrounds, and picnic sites in the park.  A lake provides fishing and an amphitheater is the site of park events. 

The Piedmont Dog Park is located under the Park Drive bridge, providing 3 acres of off-leash enclosed areas for pups to play. There are separate enclosures for large and small dogs with trails in the enclosure, seating, and restrooms for dog owners. Amenities like doggy-level water fountains provide hydration for park pups. There are even dog park concession stands that serve doggie popsicles on weekends!
