Stanwick Glen is east of Philadelphia, north of Moorestown, and south of Delran. The Delaware River is to the northwest and Rancocas Creek is north of it. This area is completely residential with business districts to the southwest and to the southeast. Just to the east of Stanwick Glen, Swedes Dog Run Park is a huge dog park with thick and lush grass as well as sandy portions. Pump wells are provided on the park for your dog to drink. There is a separate area for large and smaller dogs so your dog will be able to find the appropriate playgroup for her. To find grooming for your pup, you will need to head a fair distance south to the Dog Gone Stylin dog groomer located just beneath Cherry Hill. Stanwick Glen is a more rural suburban area with lots of great walking opportunities for you and your pooch.
Blocks tend to be arranged in cul-de-sacs and lots of dead ends so that residential streets have very little traffic. Homes are large and stately, set well back from the road on huge lots. There is nary a fence to be seen and lawns are wide and grassy so walking through this neighborhood with your dog will feel like being in a large and beautiful park. There are sidewalks on both sides of the road although they are not really necessary with the sparse traffic and wide lawns, so you will feel very comfortable walking your dog on a loose leash or bicycling, rollerblading, or skateboarding with your dog within this beautiful neighborhood. As you wander through the streets of the neighborhood, you will stumble upon lovely natural places that are forested around small ponds and cute forested islands. This will be a great place for your dog to test their footing.
Exploring through Stanwick Glen feels like being in a large park with huge grassy lots and extensive tree cover. It is easy to find yourself wandering into a natural area from this neighborhood since so many little lakes and creeks exist around here. You can also find your way to the Swede Run River, an attractive and wide waterway that runs for miles with forest on either side up to the Stokes Woods which offers more extensive forested area. Houses tend to back right up onto this river, so be careful that you do not wander onto private property while you are exploring.
You can follow the Swede Run south to a huge undeveloped forested area that is great to explore with your dog. This is not a designated park area, so there will not be paths or amenities, but if you are looking for a real natural hike, this forest can meet your needs.
