This tiny community of fewer than a thousand residents has the tree-lined streets and sidewalks a person conjures up when they hear the words "small town". It is a tight-knit community. The center of the community is the dedicated space to fallen veterans. A brick walkway to the marker and flag hearkens to the patriotism in so many small towns.
People with a four-legged family member will have to go to the surrounding larger communities for routine and emergency care. Such care and even more specialized veterinary services can be found within a fifteen-mile radius of the borough. Philadelphia, with all of its big-city services, including veterinary care, is less than fifteen miles west of Hi-Nella.
In addition, nearby communities satisfy all the outdoor recreational needs of a person and pup. Strafford Woods Trail is located five miles east in Voorhees Township. A 0.65-mile trail winds through a canopy of large trees and across big green meadows. Benches here and there along the way give a weary hiker a chance to stop and take a breather.
In Mount Ephraim -- just six miles east of Hi-Nella -- is Shining Star Park. This little gem of a park has open green spaces, a decorative gazebo, plenty of benches, and a walking path. The walking path is paved and makes for an easy stroll for outdoor exercise with your leashed pup. Ten miles north in Cherry Hill is the Downs Farm Trail. This well-marked earthen trail offers you and your pup a secluded hiking experience. This easy walk in the woods has some dense forest and takes a hiker past a small pond and across creeks.
