East Tremont is a neighborhood in the Bronx between West Bronx and Van Nest and near the Bronx Zoo. The neighborhood is primarily composed of five to six-story apartment buildings. A large park is located near the center of the neighborhood and many other regional parks exist along the Bronx and Harlem Rivers.
There are a variety of businesses in this area that cater to your dog’s needs. The Dog Boutique is a charming pet store with all kinds of luxurious products for your dog to enjoy. The Armory Dog and Cat Hospital is nearby and can put your mind at rest in case your dog needs medical attention. Dog Star Grooming will have your pal looking their best in no time.
You can go to the coast in either direction and find a variety of interesting parks and walking areas and the Botanical Garden provides interesting exploration for you and your dog as well.
East Tremont is slightly hilly. Tall apartment buildings are spaced flush together and the buildings push right against the sidewalk, so walking along these city streets feels a little tight. Some areas have wider sidewalks and long straight streets with gentle hills, so if you plan your route, some areas of this city can be fun for being on wheels with your dog.
Crotona Park is primarily ballpark, but there are some nice walking trails through the forest around Indian Pond. This little pond is a gentle way to introduce your dog to water for the first time.
The New York Botanical Garden isn’t far and is a lovely place to stroll around with your dog. You can’t go into the Bronx Zoo with your pup, but they will enjoy being able to hear and smell the exotic wilderness if you walk near the perimeter.
While East Tremont itself may feel a little tight, there is plenty of natural area nearby for you to enjoy with your dog. Crotona Park is mostly a ballpark, but it also has a lovely little pond and forested area for you and your dog to enjoy. Claremont Park has lots of walking trails winding through a forest with intermittent clearings and it is only a couple of blocks away so you can easily incorporate both parks into your walk.
A little further on, you will come to the Harlem River. The charming Harlem River and Highbridge Parks cover many blocks along the water. This is a perfect place to enjoy being on wheels with your dog since you will get breezes off of the water.
Another ten blocks towards the Hudson River will take you to a long series of parks including Fort Tryon Park and Inwood Hill Park, all of which provide gorgeous forested exploration along the river.
