Top dog walkers in Victory Heights
Wag! Walkers know Victory Heights
Victory Heights is a neighborhood that truly has a little of something for everyone. If you like living and walking in an area that has the feel of suburbia without being too far away from modern conveniences, then this area is truly the perfect neighborhood. Situated between Lake City Way and Northgate, there is retail and commercial businesses on nearly every side with plenty of food, drink, and amenities for your pup literally blocks away. There are also a fair number of apartments in the area, but most of these are towards the outer perimeters of the neighborhood.
The climate in this area offers little in the way of cold temperatures to slow you down. It will get below freezing at least once or twice a year on average. Rain and wind are the biggest barriers to walkers and their pups, but only really become a problem when the larger Pacific storms start to roll through.
What is the terrain like in Victory Heights?
A ridge runs north to south through the eastern side of Victory Heights, but there is plenty of flat terrain to walk if you are not up for climbing hills. Most of the entire west half of the neighborhood is flat and in the eastern half, the presence of a ridge means that you can still walk north to south if you are trying to avoid hills.
Sidewalks are not common in this neighborhood, so if you plan to walk, plan to walk on the streets. The only sidewalks you might find will be in the more heavily populated areas along the busier roads. Fortunately, once you get into the interior of the neighborhood, it is quiet and walking on the streets is generally not a problem. There are still shoulders on some of the roads for your pup to explore. Just be sure to clean up after them since these are private yards.
How many greenways are there in Victory Heights?
Victory Heights has a number of small parks scattered throughout it. The largest park in the north part of the neighborhood is Virgil Flaim Park. About a half of a block, this park has a walking path and a large field of grass. You will also find picnic tables, a public restroom, and a water fountain.
Albert Davis Park is a tiny place that is mostly playground, but it does have a small patch of grass and some trees. Pinehurst Pocket Park is farther south and really has little more to offer than a place to sit and a bit of grass. You might consider it if you are looking for a patch of grass for Fido or need to take a break.
At the south end of Victory Heights is Victory Heights Playground while just a bit farther south is the Kingfisher Natural Area, the real hidden gem of this neighborhood. This is a hiking area maintained by the city.
