Forest Hills is a great mix of residential and commercial properties. Residentially, Forest Hills is largely composed of standalone, single-family homes, but there are also a handful of small apartment complexes. On the west side of the neighborhood, you will find the Forest Hills campus of Augusta University which also has collegiate residential halls. Beyond homes, Forest Hills also has chain restaurants, a convenience store, a shopping center, an elementary school, a tennis center, and a golf course, although, not the one of Masters fame!
Summers in Augusta can be quite hot and humid, while the winter months are more mild with a bit of rainfall. You're sure to find decent weather throughout the year.
Unfortunately, very little of this Augusta neighborhood has sidewalks. You and Fido will have to share the roads with cyclists, oncoming traffic, and other pedestrians. Always be aware of your surroundings and exercise caution while out walking. At night, it's also recommended to have some sort of reflective gear like a vest for you or your pup so you safely stand out to others in the dark.
Forest Hills is surrounding by a few neighborhoods including Westwick and Murray Hill to the north, Summerville to the east, Daniel Field to the south, and Tanglewood to the west.
Other local greenways include Tanglewood Park, Big Oak Park, Westover Memorial Park, Pendleton King Park, King Park, Wood Park, Minnick Park, and Hillcrest Memorial Park.
The nearest dog park is the Bark Park in Pendleton King Park. This is a great alternative to a routine walk, especially if Fido has some extra energy to work off or if you want your pup to socialize with other local dogs.
