Oakland Gardens is a beautiful suburban neighborhood in northeast Queens, New York. This parkside residential neighborhood features a top rated high school that attracts many families to the area. There are also some stores, services, and restaurants in Oakland Gardens for residents and students that can be reached on foot for nearby residents. Nearby neighborhoods with more commercial services can be reached via a short drive, and provide pet services such as grooming, veterinary hospitals, and pet supply stores for area residents with pets. 

This neighborhood is considered to be a very friendly, clean community and walking with your dog through the area is enjoyable, weather permitting. The climate in Queens, like most of the New York area, can be variable, although temperature is moderated somewhat by the proximity to the ocean. About 200 days per year of sunshine can be expected, and summers tend to be hot and somewhat humid. Queens gets slightly more than the national average of rainfall, no doubt due to its coastal location, and can be subject to Atlantic weather systems and some snow in winter. Check the forecast before venturing out on foot with your pooch, and dress appropriately.

There are plenty of greenways inside and out of this neighborhood for area residents to enjoy walking with their dogs. To the east is Alley Pond Park, a 655-acre park and green space that contains the largest, and probably oldest tree in New York City, the Tulip Poplar. The southern end of the park features large boulders left by a retreating glacier, both fresh and saltwater wetlands, and natural springs.  There are plenty of trails to explore with your pup and plenty of wildlife in this park so keep your pet on a leash.

Alley Park Pond is connected by a bicycle path, the Vanderbilt Parkway, which runs south of Oakland Gardens to Cunningham Park.  Teach your dog to run alongside your bike and you can enjoy this beautiful greenway and travel between these two large scenic parks.

Cunningham Park on the westside of Oakland Gardens is a 358-acre park with a variety of trails for different ability levels from beginner to expert. Trails are marked, so pick a trail that is appropriate for you and your dog, and enjoy the walk. Cunningham Park also features an off-leash dog park where your dog can enjoy some free play with other local canines.
