Hello everyone!

My husband will be playing for the Syracuse Crunch hockey team this fall and we will be moving there in September. Could you recommend some safe areas? I have 2 dogs and we will be looking for a rental property with a yard, courtyard, or near a dog park. Most importantly, I would like a safe area, as he will be on the road alot and I will not know anyone in town. Peace of mind!

Also, we will have alot of visiting guests... anything to recommend to do around town?

What breed and size of dog? Most rentals have size or breed limits, so that would be helpful to know.
It sounds like Liverpool would be a good fit for you. They have a pretty good dog park out there. Wegmans Good Dog Park Onondaga County Parks

I'd say the Liverpool or Baldwinsville areas, as there is a big dog park off of Route 370 at Onondaga Lake Park. There is a dog park in the Tipperary Hill neighborhood at Pass Arboretum. That might work in terms of some things to do, as there are some pubs/bars in the neighborhood. That's if you are into that scene at all. Wegmans Good Dog Park Onondaga County Parks

Correction on Pass Arboretum. There isn't a dog park like the one in Liverpool, but it is a popular place for walking the dog and meeting others that walk their dogs as well. Burnet Park is right across the street too.

Tipperary Hill is a quick drive down West Genesee Street to Downtown and you would take a right onto South Salina Street, then a left onto Washington Street and a right onto South State Street to the War Memorial.

Liverpool would be a 10-15 minute ride on I-81 South to the Adams Street exit. Then, beer to the right and take Harrison Street to the War Memorial. Here are some websites that might help in finding a place: MapsKrieg - Syracuse, NY - Apartments, Rooms, Sublets, and Real Estate for Sale

I found that Jamesville Beach County Park has an off leash area for dogs too: DogFriendly.com's Travel Guide: Jamesville Beach Park Off-Leash Area

The War Memorial facility is about a 15 - 20 minute drive from most parts of the city as well as from the closer suburbs including Liverpool, Dewitt, Fairmount, Camillus, Jamesville and Fayetteville. Depending on traffic it's about five minutes more to Manlius and perhaps another five to Clay, Raddison and Baldwinsville. There will always be exceptions of course - depending on traffic and where within the suburb you are living. But traffic problems, apart from well publicized highway detours or delays (which can be avoided) during the summer construction season, are nearly non-existent.

I live in the Outer University / Meadowbrook area - which I absolutely love. It takes me 7 to 8 minutes to reach the War memorial area. It's quiet, the homes are lovely and well maintained, and it has the feel of a real neighborhood in the sense of a variety of style and vintages of homes. As you've seen - dog parks are far and few between but there are so many options. I see dozens of people walking dogs in my neighborhood every day. You just have to bring a bag to handle their stuff as you cann't leave it ont he neighbor's lawn. Many people in my end of town take their dogs to the areas around the athletic fields and tennis courts behind Nottingham High School where there's lots of room to run and also to the Hookway tract - a beautiful pond and semi-wooded and walking area adjacent to Barry Park on the city's outer east side. There are places such as this all over the city.

That is true. You see that around Upper Onondaga Park in Strathmore too.

Hello SofieMarion,

I would suggest an Apartment, Townhome or Single Family Home in the Liverpool area, Baldwinsville, Radisson, or Camillus; most areas in these suburbs are very safe, nice neighborhoods which you/your husband and your visiting guests would like, enjoy, and feel very safe there. Radisson is a nice/pleasant/quiet planned community and has meandering walking/jogging/bicycling paths throughout the large development, a golf course, lots of forested areas where you may see wildlife/rabbits/etc., ponds where you may see ducks/geese paddling around the water, more. Some rentals accept pet dogs especially if they are small size. Single Family Homes might be more apt to accept Large pet dogs.

You may want to take your visiting guests to the Armory Square area downtown Syr., Dinosaur BBQ Restaurant downtown Syr., The Retreat Restaurant in Liverpool, The Limp Lizard in Liverpool, and Coleman's Irish Pub & Restaurant in Tipperary Hill area of Syr.
