Milo-Grogan is a large mixed-use community bisected by I-71 and bounded by I -671 to the south. While a large percentage of the homes here are older single-family houses, the area also includes many apartment buildings both old and new. The neighborhood also supports a large number of light industrial and commercial businesses.
There are several restaurants in the community and many more within a few minutes' drive. While there is little in the way of green space in the area, there are parks within driving distance. Should you need dog food or other supplies, there are pet stores nearby.
If you are someone who loves all four seasons, you'll enjoy living here as the seasons are quite well-defined. Summers hover in the 80s with the occasional rainy day and winters hover around the freezing mark with plenty of snow and ice to deal with. However, spring and fall are glorious with temperatures in the 70s and gentle rains.
If you like your terrain flat, you are going to love living in Milo-Grogan because that is all you will find here. The residential areas have been carefully laid out in a near-perfect grid. Set up like this, the streets could make for some pretty boring walks for you and even more so for your pooch who explores with their nose. Luckily, with two main roads and several smaller roads that criss-cross throughout the neighborhood, you'll have plenty of options to mix things up.
Keep an eye out for patches of grass and trees here and there throughout the area. These small spots, especially around businesses and public spaces, make for good places to take a quick pit stop or potty break, providing you clean up after your pet. There are also some parking lots here and there that may be ideal, as long as the weather keeps things nice and cool.
If there is one thing missing from the Milo-Grogan area, it would have to be any kind of sizeable green space. Fortunately, at least as long as Fido doesn't mind a short ride in the car, there is the Goodale Park just a few blocks to the west. The park offers lots of grass to play on, a walking trail, sports courts, floral displays, gardens, and plenty of room for you and your pooch to run around and have fun!
A little further to the west is Wheeler Memorial Park in which you will find the Wheeler Dog Park. This is a fenced-in dog park with sections for large and small dogs. Each of the sections offers lots of room for the dogs to run, water fountains, and plenty of shade trees to cool off under.
To the north, Natural Resources Park provides another great place to visit with your pup, any time of year.
