Flushing is a neighborhood with a long history dating back to pre-colonial days, which today has become an international melting pot. Situated off Flushing Bay and Creek and across from LaGuardia Airport, it is a busy hub of activity that is mixed residential and commercial. You will not want for places to go on your walk, depending on whether you want to wander the stores and international districts or are looking for someplace quiet to kick off your shoes and run in the grass with your fluffy companion. This neighborhood is rich with ethnic culture both in foods and shops, but it is also a dog lover's paradise and their needs and wants have not been forgotten. There are numerous pet stores and vets in the area for you to choose from and if you want to give Fido a clip and bath, you will find that there are even a few grooming parlors in which to pamper your favorite furry friend. Weather is cold, wet, and windy in the winter, with the possibilities of heavy snow, and in the summer,  there is likely to be some very hot and humid days that might necessitate you take your dog out in the early morning or evening.

The terrain throughout Flushing is flat and mostly concrete. In some areas, it is hard to even find a patch of grass or tree for your dog to sniff or do his business. The area also has two major interstates and a number of busy roads, so walking through this neighborhood can be difficult. Fortunately, there are some nice parks in Flushing and a larger space at Flushing Meadows Corona Park just to the west, so if your neighborhood is not the best place for walking you do not have far to go to find some soft grass or hiking trails. Some of the areas around Flushing, although busy, are a cultural treasure and make for a good stroll. Flushing Chinatown near Main street and Kissena Boulevard will be as much of a treat for you as your walking companion. This area is rapidly becoming one of the largest Chinatowns in the world and has much to offer for walkers.

The residents of Flushing are fortunate enough to have access to some nice parks and spaces to take their walks in, which more than makes up for the lack of green spaces on the roads and the overabundance of traffic. Because of the highways, unless you are lucky enough to be located right next to these parks you might find that you need to drive there instead of walk. Kissena Corridor Park is located along the southern edge of Flushing and Kissena Park is located right next to it just outside of Flushing. Both have large greenways and pathways to walk on as well as some large trees for catching a bit of shade. Flushing Meadows Corona Park located just to the south and west offers huge spaces of green, trails, and an off-leash area for your dog. A couple of smaller parks within Flushing might make for good alternatives if traveling is not an option. Weeping Beech, Leavitts Park, and Cadwallader Colden Playground all have places to walk and plenty of shade.
