This residential community is all artificial terrain, but there are still plenty of mature, large trees to provide shade during those sunny Carolina summer days. Unfortunately, only certain streets have sidewalks in Barclay Downs, so you and Spot may need to share the roadways with other pedestrians and pups, cyclists, and any oncoming traffic. 

Additionally, Barclay Downs is a rather hilly neighborhood. There are plenty of unexpected and steep hills throughout this community, so you and Spot are guaranteed to get a great workout in while exploring this Charlotte suburb. 

The boundaries of Barclay Downs include Brandywine Road and Lorene Avenue to the north, Colony Road to the east, Sharon Road and Fairview Road to the south, and Park Road and Little Sugar Creek to the west. The majority of shopping complexes are in the southern part of the neighborhood along Fairview Road, Sharon Road, Barclay Downs Road, and Morrison Boulevard, so these streets may have more high-speed or congested traffic.

Unfortunately, there is only one greenway located in Barclay Downs. Symphony Park, located in the southern part of the neighborhood, is a large greenway known for its outdoor concerts and festivals. Unfortunately, there is no off-leash area in Symphony Park, but the large grassy field may be the perfect place for a quick pit-stop if Spot needs one. Just be sure to always clean up after your pup's visit!

Other nearby greenways include Park Road Park, Marion Diehl Park, Madison Central Park, Little Sugar Creek Greenway, and Carmel Road Neighborhood Park. Most of these parks have playgrounds, benches, and paved walking paths. Little Sugar Creek Greenway, however, has a well-maintained walking trail that runs through it and connects to other Charlotte neighborhoods. 

Unfortunately, the nearest dog park is seven miles to the south. William R. Davie Regional Dog Park, located in William R. Davie Park, is a five-acre, fenced-in park with separate areas for both smaller and larger breeds.
