The weather in spring, summer, and fall is generally comfortable and pleasant. In spring and fall, a long-sleeved shirt or light jacket may be necessary due to cooler temperatures. Winters can be harsh due to heavy snowfall which may make walking or driving through the village slippery and difficult. Appropriate snow gear will be needed, as well as proper protection for your dog.
There are many green spaces to explore while walking with your pup. These neighborhoods feature older homes and period-piece mansions with carefully landscaped yards and gardens and gorgeous flowers to see when they're in season. Immediately outside the village are acres of farmland, and like the parks nearby, these areas are more easily accessible by car than on foot. Exercise caution when crossing major streets and pay attention to traffic signals and lights.
Majors Park is a small park with a boardwalk through a short nature trail. The real gem of East Aurora parks is Knox Farm State Park with 633 acres of land to explore. Better yet, there is a separate space in Knox Farm that is home to a popular dog park with separate sections for large and smaller breeds. Waste bags are available in stations around the park as well as a rinsing station for dogs who get muddy. This large park is used by the public, including other dog walkers, runners, hikers, and horseback riders, so keep your dog under control at all times.
