Wag! Walkers know Dyker Heights

Dyker Heights is a gorgeous neighborhood in Brooklyn. It is slightly raised up on a hill between BensonHurst, Bay Ridge, and Borough Park, with its southwest border on Gravesend Bay. This neighborhood has a much more suburban feel than many areas in Brooklyn with large lots and imposing homes.

Dyker Heights was originally a Dutch town known as New Utecht, settled in the mid-1600s. The area was too sloped for farming and so it was used by the villagers as common woods for firewood and building materials. The area was developed in the 1890s and rapidly became a favorite of the affluent due to the raised position of the neighborhood and views of the water.

This gorgeous neighborhood has a range of services catering to your dog. La Bella Pooch Dog Training and Grooming is an all-in-one, one stop shop to get your dog looking good and behaving well.

What is the terrain like in Dyker Heights?

Walking through Dyker Heights is very enjoyable, although you never forget you are in a city, despite the suburban appearance. Homes are large and imposing with gorgeous stately landscaping and features like topiaries, fountains, and banisters. Yards are small and due to the sloped nature of the area, the ground is terraced behind walls. There is no divider between sidewalk and street, so walking along these streets can feel tight.

Architecture is beautiful in this neighborhood, so you will likely enjoy the walk for that reason. For more loose leash walking, just head towards the coast. Almost a quarter of this neighborhood nearest the coast is taken up by a sprawling golf course, but past this is a gorgeous natural area and a walking and biking trail along the water that you and your dog will love whether you want to let them run on a loose leash or enjoy cycling, skating, or rollerblading. 

How many greenways are there in Dyker Heights?

This is a beautiful neighborhood with attractive landscaping and beautiful shrubbery, trees, and topiaries, but space is limited and you will feel constrained in most of the neighborhood. The largest green area is not available for you and your dog to enjoy since it is a golf course, but if you go past it, you can find a wonderful area to explore.

The Belt Parkway path runs right along the shoreline. A wide area of grass divides the path from the road along most parts so you can have some insulation from the noise. You will love exploring the shoreline with your dog. The rocky shorelines are fun to explore and your dog will find no shortage of interesting things to smell.

You can follow the trail up to the John Paul Jones Park with its lovely tree cover and on to the Shore Road Park and Parkway with trails winding between the extensive tree cover.
