Wag! Walkers know Wakefield

Wakefield looks much like your typical residential neighborhood in New City. Mostly city streets with sidewalks make for safe, if not natural, settings to take your daily walk with your fluffy companion. Wakefield is situated in North Bronx, NY and is a mix of single-family residential and mostly small business buildings. This makes it easy to find all of the amenities including Fido’s favorite treats and veterinarians to tend to their health, but if you would rather spend your time out in nature, you may have to travel a bit to find the perfect spot for your walks. 

Fortunately, walking trails and parks are never very far in New York and Wakefield is no exception. If you do decide to walk in the neighborhood, there are plenty places to grab a bite to eat or a drink, and lots of store windows to browse in along may of the routes, so your trip need not be boring. Being in New York City, Wakefield is subject to the same cold winters with rain, snow, wind, and cold temperatures. Summers are usually hot and humid, but mornings and evenings make perfect times to take a long walk. Often, the best walking times are in the fall and spring so be sure to make a point of getting out there. 

What is the terrain like in Wakefield?

Mostly tightly packed housing and small businesses, you will be traveling on a lot of sidewalks throughout the neighborhood if you choose to stay in Wakefield for your walk. There is some grass and trees along the sides of roads in some areas, which provide a place to your dog to explore and do his business. The terrain is mostly flat, so expect easy walking for you and your pup. There are some hills in the neighborhoods to the west such as Riverdale, so if you are looking for a bit more of a workout a short trip over near the Hudson River might make for a better walk. There are also parks close by that have trails that may be easier on your dog’s feet, especially during the hot summer when concrete is brutal on your pup's paws. Expect hot and humid conditions mid-day in the summer so plan your walks accordingly. Winter is the only time when you may find it very difficult to get out, due to snow, ice, rain, or very cold temperatures. 

How many greenways are there in Wakefield?

Wakefield itself does not have much to offer in the way of greenways, with a couple of small playgrounds and one park along Bronx River that does offer a path to walk on. The path has some shade and grass but if it is grass your dog is craving, Seton Park is just to the east of Wakefield and offers plenty of grass and trails as well as a manmade waterfall that makes a perfect pit stop on a hot day. For an even bigger adventure, hop across the Bronx River Parkway to Van Cortland Park just to the west of Wakefield. This 1,146-acre park is home to some of the last vestiges of New York City’s native woodlands. In addition to acres of grass and woods, there is a lake and a dog park for your four-legged companion to really stretch his legs in. With plenty of paths and nature trails, it will be hard for you and your dog to get bored.
