Kew Gardens is on the southwest part of Queens and is bordered by Briarwood to the east, Richmond Hill to the south, the Flushing Meadows-Corona Park to the north, and Forest Park to the west. Kew Gardens was one of the planned garden communities built in the late 1800s and early 1900s. This area was purchased along with the flatter parts of New York that were developed into Hollis Hill and several other low-lying neighborhoods. It was not developed until the 1920s when the first apartment buildings were built and the railroad station was opened. When the Grand Central Parkway opened for Kew Gardens the area grew rapidly.

The unique situation of this neighborhood between two large parks means that this is a quieter and more natural area than most of Queens. This is a primarily residential neighborhood with some small restaurants scattered throughout and some businesses clustered on Metropolitan Avenue.

There is a lot of variety in the types of homes in Kew Gardens. Historically, this area was filled with apartment buildings based around garden areas, but as time has gone on, many single-family homes have also sprouted up here along the terrain which is mostly flat, making it ideal for lower energy pups. Homes are set back from the sidewalk behind small yards that are usually not fenced. There is a good sidewalk on both sides of the road and it has a sufficient divider so you will feel comfortable walking your dog on a loose leash or being on wheels with your dog throughout most of Kew Gardens. That said, some areas are tighter than others, so plan your route carefully through this area. You don't have far to look for diversity from the typical neighborhood walk, as two huge and beautiful parks border this community.

Kew Gardens is extremely lucky to be situated between two huge parks. The large Maple Grove Cemetery also provides quiet green space, so while walking through Kew Gardens does feel like Queens, it feels like a quieter Queens than you might be accustomed to. The Forest Park that borders this neighborhood is one of the largest parks in the city of New York and is an old forest that has been maintained in its natural state. Well-maintained walking trails meander through this park so you can experience all of the beauty of nature. If you would like a more natural experience, you can easily wander off of the path to explore the deep wilderness.

North of Kew Gardens, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park has two large lakes for you to explore with your dog. While the most northernly lake is surrounded by golf course, the lower lake is surrounded by natural wilderness and shorelines.
