Wag! Walkers know Melrose

Melrose is an interesting neighborhood near Brooklyn and the East River. There are several natural areas offered in this location, including Maria Hernandez Park and the green spaces around the Bushwick Houses. Sternberg Park is not far away either, and if you are willing to go all the way towards the water you can find East River State Park which is a charming area with waterfront views.

Homes in Melrose are generally larger apartment-style buildings that are spaced very closely together or with no space between them. Most apartment buildings have no yards, but only front stoops that let out directly onto the sidewalk. Those homes that do have small yards are generally fenced. There is no green divider between the sidewalk and the street, although there are trees interspersed along the divider area. While walking down neighborhood streets in Melrose is not unpleasant, for the best experience with walking with your dog on a loose leash, head towards one of the parks in the area.

What is the terrain like in Melrose?

Homes in Melrose are generally large apartment buildings that are closely spaced. Grassless dividers and busy roads mean that this is not the best neighborhood walking you will find in New York. One exception to this rule is the Bushwick Houses neighborhood, which allows for public access to its pleasant walking paths. There is even a ball court in the center of this housing complex. You will find plenty of charming green space, large mature trees, and scattered playgrounds and benches on which to rest. While you should not trust the fence of this park to contain your dog off leash, it can be an extra security blanket if you are working on leash manners with your dog and are worried about potential escape.

Housing complexes like the Bushwick Houses and the nearby neighborhood between Park Avenue and Myrtle Avenue provide long stretches of sidewalks without streets dividing blocks, so these are good places to bike ride, skateboard, or rollerblade with your dog.

How many greenways are there in Melrose?

There are lots of little parks in and around Melrose for you to enjoy with your dog, as well as several housing developments that offer lots of tree cover over paths that are separated from roads. While many parks are largely devoted to sports fields, most also feature sitting and walking areas that you can enjoy with your dog.

The nearby Maria Hernandez Park offers lovely trails that lead to a wide-open courtyard with attractive paving and lots of seating. You can enjoy letting your dog run a loose leash or throwing a ball around with your dog in this open area. This is also a perfect place to skateboard with your dog, since there is no risk of running into traffic and the extensive paved space is perfect for this activity. Lots of grassy spaces in Maria Hernandez Park will also tempt you and your dog to rest and relax and recover in this charming little Park.

Nearby Sternberg Park also offers several sweet walking paths through wooded areas as well as a large ball court.
