Wag! Walkers know Washington Heights

Washington Heights has the distinction of being home to one of the most significant developments of single-family homes. Those who live here work in the suburbs or the heart of this city. Today, there are single-family homes and condos in the area. For the foodie in you, the area offers a wide range of Jamaican and Eastern European dishes. If you want a dog park or pet supply stores, you have no choice but to put your dog in the car and take them for a ride. 

Like all of Greater Chicagoland, the winters here are perfect for those who love the cold weather. Sitting on the shores of Lake Michigan means living with lake effect snows and winds. The temperatures can spend weeks hovering below freezing with the wind chill. Along with the cold temperatures, you can count on plenty of snow to drive and play in.

What is the terrain like in Washington Heights?

If you are looking for hills to add challenge to your walks, you won't find any in this section of Chicago. What you will see here are flat streets that offer very little in the way of challenge. But, at the same time, just because you are faced with nothing in the form of hills to up the ante, you just have to be ready to think outside of the block. 

For example, if you live on S. Emerald Ave. and you typically walk down to W. 101st St. and turn left, next time go north on S. Emerald and turn left on W 100th. Even the simplest changes can go a long way towards making your daily strolls more interesting. 

During the summer months, be sure you take walks in the early morning. The reason for this is that when it is that hot outside, the pavement is going to be hot enough to cause injury. 

How many greenways are there in Washington Heights?

Despite the size of this community, there are only a few small community parks. The only one of any consequence is Robichaux Park in the northeast corner. This park measures a little over 13 acres and has a gym, a playground, numerous athletic fields, and features multiple walking trails. At the same time, there are acres of grass for the both of you to run around on and burn off some of those extra pounds. 

If you're up for a bit of a drive, to the northwest of the community is Dan Ryan Woods. The woods cover over 250 acres and include numerous playing fields, a sledding hill that is very popular, and a long, paved walking trail to explore. 

Finally, like most of the communities in Chicago, there are a number of vacant lots scattered throughout Washington Heights. While it can be tempting to take your pup out in these lots, they are still someone's private property, so exercise caution.
