Residents with pets can enjoy strolling the neighborhood no matter what the season is. The temperature in Honolulu is hot and dry during the summer and occasionally rainy in the winter. The temperature does not vary much between seasons. Storms are relatively rare despite the tropical weather and location.
McCully Moiliili features flat terrain and can easily be traversed without effort by pedestrians and pets. Residential homes and commercial businesses are interspersed and well distributed throughout the area. The district is well built-up and developed, located not far from the ocean, and is situated between a canal on its southern border and a freeway on its northeastern border. The freeway area is not pedestrian-friendly. The region is built on top of a cave system with an underground stream but the system is not accessible to the public. Commercial streets and main roads have sidewalks, but not all residential areas do, so be careful when walking your dog in areas where separate pedestrian pathways are not present. Homes in the area consist of high rise apartments, walk up apartments, and single-family homes. Landscaping is limited on private properties due to the hot, dry weather, so you may need to wander a bit to find some nicer greenery.
Other small parks and recreation areas in the community include McCully District Park which has an outdoor swimming pool, a basketball court, and a playground. Mōʻiliʻili Neighborhood Park has baseball diamonds, as well as trees and open spaces while Honolulu Stadium State Park with its paved trails makes an excellent walking destination for you and your dog.
Three mini-parks in the area also provide small green spaces with lawns, trees, seating areas, and paved pedestrian paths.
