Wag! Walkers know Gowanus

Gowanus is an old industrial area surrounding the canals in south Brooklyn, New York City. Nowadays, there are residential homes, bars, restaurants and even co-working spaces in the area, giving it the hustle and bustle that the rest of Brooklyn holds. Its eastern side is flanked by 4th聽Avenue as it borders Park Slope. To the north, you have Boerum Hill divided by Baltic Street. Smith Street runs along its western boundary with Carroll Gardens as its neighbor while to the south, you have the Prospect Expressway and, of course, the Gowanus Canal.

This bustling neighborhood has plenty of amenities. Bark Slope Pet Groomer can be found on 7th聽Street for when your little friend needs a good old pamper and Brooklyn Roots Veterinary Clinic is on 3rd聽Avenue. But it doesn鈥檛 stop there as you鈥檒l also find a variety of pet stores including Court Street Pet Food which sells all the doggie treats and everyday meals your pooch could ask for.聽

What is the terrain like in Gowanus?

Gowanus itself is incredibly low lying since it was created as a hub for the canal access. If you鈥檙e wandering around the old industrial canal system, you鈥檒l have no trouble traversing the terrain. Whatever attire you choose to wear will be fine for walking in these parts. The neighborhood slopes up towards South Slope and Park Slope, so you are likely to encounter some inclines when heading to these destinations.

Since this was an old industrial area, the terrain is nothing short of purely artificial. You鈥檒l be walking along bridges, sidewalks, and busy streets. However, the canal waters will give you a little sense of freedom. In the summertime, they can feel bright and beautiful despite their industrial past. For something a little more natural, you鈥檒l have to head to one of the city鈥檚 greenways, such as the nearby Prospect Park. Here, you鈥檒l find enough open space for your pooch to feel right at home.

How many greenways are there in Gowanus?

There are no real greenways within the borders of Gowanus. The canals are about as close to nature as you鈥檒l feel. Luckily, some of Brooklyn鈥檚 most popular parks are incredibly nearby. Prospect Park is a favorite among locals. Although it鈥檚 a little far from Gowanus for a daily walk, it has enough space to provide you with incredible weekend walks for when your pooch and you need a little time with nature. Let your doggie pal feel the grass under their feet and run around with other pups to their heart鈥檚 content!

On the western side of the聽canal,聽you鈥檒l find Red Hook Recreation Center. This is mostly home to sports fields, however, you may be able to take your pooch to the green when they are not in use. In the north, you鈥檒l find Thomas Green Playground. This is a small park in an industrial area, but it鈥檚 worth a look in you鈥檙e in the neighborhood.聽
