If you enjoy walking your dog around Glover Park, you should have some rain gear for wet spring and fall weather and a warm jacket for chilly winters. Summers are humid and it may be advisable to avoid the heat by walking earlier or later in the day.
This developed neighborhood has a lot of dead-end streets and the lack of thru-traffic makes it more peaceful than many adjacent neighborhoods. Most residences in the area are row houses built in the 1920s and 30s with some low rise apartment buildings that also feature vintage architecture.
Most of the neighborhood is level and dog walkers do not have any steep climbs to contend with, so even if your pup has some mobility issues, you can get around the area easily. There are separate pedestrian sidewalks lining streets, so you don't have to share the road with vehicles.
The Glover-Archbold Park is connected to the Newark Street Dog Park. This great off-leash dog park has separate enclosed areas for small and large dogs, tennis balls that collect here from the local tennis courts for playing fetch, waste disposal supplies and facilities, and drinking water supplies for people and pets!
To the east of Glover Park, the Guy Mason Park has some recreation space and is known as an unofficial dog park, popular with locals and their pets.
