You and Fido should have a wonderful time walking through Humboldt! This urban neighborhood has plenty of sidewalks, so you and your pup won't have to share the roadways with traffic or other pedestrians. Additionally, many sidewalks are lined with mature trees, which offer the promise of shade during those sunny, summer days.
Humboldt is also a relatively flat neighborhood, so there shouldn't be any steep hills during your daily walks. Finally, since Humboldt is a more urban neighborhood, there is no natural terrain. This can be a bit dangerous during hot, summer days as sidewalks and roadways can heat up and potentially burn your pup's sensitive paw pads.The boundaries of Humboldt include North Ainsworth Street to the north, Rodney Avenue to the east, North Skidmore Street to the south, and Interstate 5 to the west. Other major roadways that cut through this neighborhood include North Killingsworth Street, North Albina Avenue, North Alberta Street, and North Vancouver Avenue.
The second is on the corner of North Albina Avenue and North Mississippi. This greenway is really just a few manicured shrubs and flowers, with a very small paved path and a place to sit.
