Pike Place is located just north of Seattle, Washington's downtown central business district. This neighborhood is a popular tourist destination and is highly walkable. The Pike Place Market is a year-round farmers market that attracts foot traffic to the area. Restaurants, shops, coffeehouses, pubs, and taverns dot the area and are easily accessible on foot. 

Seattle is known for being rainy much of the year and good rain gear is a must for dog walkers in the region. Winters are cool, wet, and precipitation sometimes falls as snow or sleet when the temperature drops, making surfaces icy. Fortunately, this does not often happen nor do icy conditions persist as the temperature warms up, however, slippery walkways should be avoided to prevent injury to people and pets. Summers are warm and not quite so rainy. Extreme heat and storms are also rare, making this season ideal for foot travel and long treks with your furry friend.

Pike Place is located on the east shore of Elliot Bay adjacent to the central business districts. The neighborhood is located in the few blocks around the popular Pike Place Market. This is a highly developed urban landscape with high rise and multi-story buildings. Streets are well shaded by the tall buildings and there are even some shade trees planted along the busy city streets. There is lots of traffic, trolley lines, and bicycle lanes along roads. Your dog should be acclimatized to traffic, so they are not spooked by all the activity in this neighborhood. 

Residents of the neighborhood live in apartments, condominiums, or in living spaces above retail stores which are located at street level. The waterfront has parks, piers, and an aquarium located along it. The terrain slopes down to the waterfront and pedestrians navigating the region will face some treks up and down hills, so be prepared with good footwear.

Victor Steinbrueck Park is located near the waterfront in Pike Place, adjacent to the market. There are picnic sites and open lawns in the park and sunbathing or relaxing in the shade are popular activities here. Two 50-foot cedar totem poles make interesting sightseeing destinations.  

The Waterfront Park is just a little south and is located on the water with piers jutting out into the ocean. The park is lighted with attractive lamps, benches to sit and enjoy the waterfront are available, and there are curved railings on observation platforms to view the bay, mountains, or the Seattle skyline. There is an aquarium located at the north end. A unique fountain is also located here made from bronze with cubical structures providing an interesting art installation that is a popular site for locals.

The Elliot Bay Trail connects the parks along the waterfront and provides a great place for a stroll with your canine companion.
