Walk Score in LaSalle

The LaSalle district is located in the northeastern corner of Buffalo, New York. This neighborhood is densely populated with older homes and apartments, making it highly walkable due to easy access to sidewalks. The outskirts of this area along William L. Gaiter Parkway and Clyde Avenue are more commercial and industrial locations which are not the best places to walk a dog. 

Spring, summer, and fall tend to be the best seasons in this area for walking outside, although all three are subject to variable weather conditions. Spring is sometimes rainy while summer is often pleasant unless the humidity rises. In the case of sweltering weather, check surfaces such as concrete and pavement to make sure they are not too hot. Fall is generally pleasant with comfortable temperatures while winter is difficult for walking due to the likelihood of heavy snows, winds, and low temperatures. Wear clothing appropriate to the weather so you remain comfortable while walking.

The LaSalle neighborhood is urban and artificial surfaces dominate it. This layout is beneficial for walking a dog because of the number of accessible sidewalks located on each street in the area. There are traffic-heavy streets in the LaSalle district, including Main Street, Kensington Avenue, Bailey Avenue, and East Amherst Street. While walking on these streets, be aware of the volume of people around you and your dog. Have your dog on a leash and under your control and use caution when walking across these roads. Use crosswalks and obey the lights for your safety and the well-being of your pup on your daily outings.

There are few green spaces available in LaSalle, so be aware that the majority of your walking will be done either in residential neighborhoods or along the busy roads. Wear bright, reflective clothing whenever possible and enjoy the walk through this historic Western New York neighborhood.

LaSalle is a city-bound area and thus does not have many community parks available for walking. The central park in this area is McCarthy Park, a favorite spot for local families. It has playgrounds, baseball diamonds, tennis courts, and basketball courts. It also has plenty of room to walk a dog, although there are few trees and not much shade for a walk on a hot day. 

Just across the road is Shoshone Park. Again, family amenities are available, as are benches for sitting and a walking path that directly connects Shoshone with the North Buffalo Rails to Trails path. Plenty of trees and shade are available. 

To the east of LaSalle is a small neighborhood park called Roosevelt Park. Smaller than the previously mentioned parks, Roosevelt is used for athletics, however, there is a wonderfu tree-lined section at the rear near the expressway. It might make for a loud walk, but it will be a shady one.
