Wag! Walkers know Lakeshore (Lake Vista)

Lakeshore-Lake Vista is a neighborhood located on Lake Pontchartrain, a 20-minute commute north of the New Orleans central business district and is a subdivision of the Lakeview District Area. Greenways and waterfront properties abound in this region for walking with your dog, but there is also some commercial activity in the southwest corner at the Robert E. Lee strip mall where pedestrians and pets can reach necessary shops, local eateries, and other services. The Metairie Small Animal Hospital is also situated within walking distance on the south side of the community. 

New Orleans locals and their furry friends enjoy warm weather year-round for outdoor ventures with mild winters that rarely see sub-freezing conditions or even rarer snowfall. Hot, humid conditions in the summer can hamper your outings with your pet if heat becomes extreme. Many dog walkers plan to take their pets out earlier or later in the day when temperatures moderate somewhat and conditions are cooler.

What is the terrain like in Lakeshore (Lake Vista)?

Lakeshore-Lake Vista is bordered by Lake Pontchartrain on the north border, Robert E. Lee Boulevard on the south, Lakeshore Drive on its western border, and Bayou St. John along the east border. The area consists of two subdivisions, Lakeshore and Lake Vista, which are divided by the Orleans Avenue Canal. The area is built on reclaimed land from the lake and has an elevation of zero feet above sea level.  

This neighborhood is mostly residential with predominantly mid-century homes. Because there is no historic district designation, some older homes are being replaced by new builds. Properties are large, well landscaped, and well maintained and the area is very attractive with mature shade trees along streets, providing shade. The community has separate pedestrian paths along roads and many areas also have grassy berms, creating a safe place for pets to stroll in the neighborhood. The terrain is flat and there are no hills to climb when walking with your dog in the area.

How many greenways are there in Lakeshore (Lake Vista)?

The New Basin Canal Park extends from the southwest side in a long strip to the south with open areas and walkways and Tourmaline Park is an open grassy area with some trees providing shade in the greenway. Orleans Avenue Canal greenspace follows the canal and the Bayou St. John greenway on the east side contains historic sites, grassy areas, and some shade trees with walking paths. 


Lakeshore Park is situated along Lake Pontchartrain and the Lakeshore Trail runs between the water and the park, providing an excellent multi-use trail for dogs and dog walkers. Watch out for cyclists and joggers on the popular paved trail. 


 Other great greenways in the region include Floral Park, Zephyr Park, Ozone Park, Breeze Park, Harlequin Park, and Foliage Park. To the west, along the Lakefront Trail which can be accessed in the adjacent Bucktown neighborhood, you and your dog can take a jaunt to the enclosed off-leash dog park at the Bonnabel Boat Launch for some play and socialization.
