Clason Point is a neighborhood of the Bronx. It is a coastal community that sometimes includes the neighboring Shorehaven within its boundaries. To the east and across White Plains Road, you’ll find the neighborhood of Castle Hill. Just north of the area, with Lafayette Avenue as its defining boundary, you’ll find Sound View while south of Clason Point is the Bronx and East River.
You’re limited for pet amenities in the area. So you’ll have to head a little further afield in order to reach the grooming services, stores, and animal hospitals you’ll need to care for your pooch. The Cross Bronx Pet Shop is located on East 177th Avenue, just north of Clason Point. This is a well-stocked store that can provide you with grooming products, food, toys, and more. Maria’s Pet Shop and Grooming is located on White Plains Road in Parkchester. You know you're leaving your BFF in good hands with Maria.
Like most of the coastal neighborhoods in the Bronx, Clason Point has very level terrain. You won’t find many hills in the area or anywhere nearby, so if you’re looking for an easy walk, that’s certainly something you’ll find here. In fact, the highest elevation you’ll find in Clason Point is around 30ft above sea level which is pretty minimal and not likely to cause anyone any issues.
It is also a very built-up neighborhood. Again, this is very typical given its location in one of the five boroughs of NYC. You’ll find almost solely man-made terrain here and even the parks and greenways in the area are landscaped. Having said that, there are a few large greenways where a little natural terrain is allowed its freedom. You can find grasslands and wetlands in these areas. You’ll also find the coast of the East River to be pretty natural as well. There is no taming the waterways!
The largest greenway in Clason Point is Soundview Park. This expansive recreational ground offers a huge amount of grass and green space as well as views over the river. It is ideal for a classic game of throw and catch. On the other side of the neighborhood, you’ll find Pugsley View Park. This is another large greenway that features 84-acres of mixed habitats. Here, you’ll find grasslands and wetlands with the beautiful creek running through its center.
In fact, in Clason Point, you’ll never be far from a place for your pooch to run and play. Whichever direction you decide to head in, you’ll most likely stumble across somewhere to stop and take in the views.
If you head south to the tip of Clason Point on the coast, you’ll come to Clason Point Park. Walk along the coastline here for that fresh East River air. It will never disappoint!
