The campus itself is walker-friendly with sidewalks around the circumference of the college. The artsy, eclectic atmosphere of the Buffalo State area makes every walk in this area an interesting one. 

During the spring and fall, the weather in this area is cool and temperate, although it can, at times, be rainy and windy. Sometimes the heat and humidity indexes rise substantially in the summer, so be sure that you and your dog are prepared for high temperatures. Winter is often snowy and sometimes bitterly cold due to Buffalo State's proximity to Lake Erie and the potential for lake-effect snow storms. Appropriate cold weather attire is necessary for you and your dog.

There are multiple greenways around the Buffalo State campus. Of particular note is Delaware Park just across the street from the college and behind the famous Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Delaware Park is a Frederick Law Olmsted-designed park and the area nearest to the campus borders Hoyt Lake, the Delaware Rose Garden, and multiple shady paths. It is dog-friendly, although canines need to be kept on a leash and cleaned up after when necessary. 

Smaller parks are also available to walk in including the Japanese Gardens, a six-acre section of Delaware Park located behind the Buffalo History Museum. The Scajaquada Expressway is a nearly five-mile-long pathway that connects Delaware Park to the Erie Canal Trail and is within five minutes walking distance from the campus.
