Wag! Walkers know Art Center

The Art Center is a mixed-use district, a short 10-minute drive north of Detroit's central downtown district. This area is the location of several museums including the Michigan Science Center, the College for Creative Studies, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, and many unique art galleries. Local eateries and shops are within walking distance for area residents and this neighborhood is highly walkable.

Pet owners can travel on foot to the Cass Corridor Pet Store which is located 25 minutes south of the Art Center community. 

When walking with your dog in the Art Center district, you will need to be prepared for subfreezing temperatures during winter months. A warm jacket will allow you to venture out for daily walks, even during cold weather. Summer temperatures are usually warm, but can be hot and humid. During hot spells, avoid walking during the height of the day to avoid heat-related illness.

What is the terrain like in Art Center?

The Art Center District is bordered by East Edsel Ford Freeway on the north side, John R. Street on the west, East Warren Avenue on the south, and the Chrysler Freeway on the east side. The freeways in the region are not pedestrian or pet-friendly and should be avoided.  

The museums and institutions occupy large sections of the neighborhood, however, residential housing is also predominant. Dwellings are comprised of various townhouses, single-family detached dwellings, duplexes and condominium complexes. Residential areas have mature trees on communal properties and private landscaped properties. 

The terrain in the area is flat and there are no steep hills to climb up and down which makes the area easy to hike about for people and pets. There are plenty of sidewalks in the area, so you and your dog do not have to share the road with traffic on daily walks. Some open, undeveloped tracts of land exist in the region.

How many greenways are there in Art Center?

Peck Park is conveniently located in the Art Center neighborhood and can be reached on foot by area canines and their handlers. This park has a circular feature with lawns, trees, shrubs, gardens, and a play structure. Paved walking paths intersect at the central feature and this park is a desirable walking location in the community. 


There are also some open, undeveloped green spaces, playfields, and communal properties around complexes that create additional greenways in the area. 


The Midtown Dog Park is located to the south. This dog park has an enclosed area for your dog to play off leash at Cass Avenue and West Canfield Street. There are picnic tables in the park for dog owners to sit at while supervising their pets. Your dog should be well socialized to play in the park. If your pooch is shy, senior, or smaller, you may want to visit the park at off-peak hours when it is quieter.
