There's plenty to do around Lake View East that your furry friend will enjoy. Bark by the Park is a pet boutique in the southern part of the neighborhood offering homemade pet pastries and private events for doggie birthdays or play dates. In the central part of Lake View East is Wigglyville, Inc., a pet store selling natural foods and toys. Paradise Pet Salon & Spa Too!, a groomer that also offers doggie spa treatments, sits just outside the neighborhood's northern border.
Lake View East sits directly on Lake Michigan, so it's naturally flat. No need to worry about steep hills on a walk in this neighborhood! The neighborhood is about a mile-and-a-half long, making it very easy to see the whole community in one walk.
On the east side of Lake View East is Belmont Harbor and its surrounding green spaces, from golf courses to grassy patches. Take your pet to Belmont Harbor Dog Beach where you can let them run leash-free through the sand and water. The beach is a popular spot for dogs and their owners on the weekend but is quieter on weekdays. A part of Lakefront Trail also passes by Lake View East. While it welcomes pets on leashes, the trail can get crowded with bikers, runners, and more, so watch your pet during busier days.
