Bookseller's Row is a small section of Bainbridge Street running from South Clifton Street to S. 6th Street. It is home to the largest collection of used booksellers in the city. If you can't find the book you are looking for here, it probably can't be found. Many of the stores along the street have upstairs apartments and lofts. Living here can be a lot of fun, especially with Philadelphia's Magic Gardens in the area. The Gardens offer a sculpture garden maze, mosaicked galleries, and educational programs. This a very eclectic area to live in and is filled with fun neighbors who love calling Bookseller's Row home.
If you are a warm weather lover, sit in the shade with a good book! You will love Philadelphia summers. The temperatures are in the 80s with plenty of sunshine. Or you can head over to the Seger Dog Park where your pup can play while you enjoy relaxing in the shade.
Like the rest of Bainbridge St., Bookseller's Row is flat and has nothing much besides sidewalks for you and your pup to go hiking on. The good news is that the sidewalks are wide enough for the two of you to walk on without getting in the way of other pedestrians.
While flat terrain may not seem like it would be much of a challenge, you'll want to remember that this type of terrain is only going to be as challenging as you choose to make it. For instance, you can choose to go around different blocks on each of your walks. The more variety you can build into each of your walks, the more enjoyable they will become. The only way to add more challenge to your walks is to increase the number of blocks you choose to walk around or how far you go on any given day.
When it comes to green spaces around Bookseller's Row, you have a choice of three. The first is the Palumbo Recreation Center which is a large sports field with plenty of room for you and your dog to run around on, providing you keep them on a leash.
The second is Cianfrani Park which is a quiet little space with large patches of grass along with paved walkways. The nearest dog park is Seger Dog Park, a public dog park cared for by the non-profit Seger Park Dog Owner's Association. This park has separate areas for large and small dogs and is scheduled to be covered with artificial dog grass over the winter of 2019.
Outside of the dog park, there is a small water park for the kids, a couple of tennis courts, and lots of shade trees to relax under while your dog enjoys some time socializing and playing with other pups.
