Be sure to check the weather before you head out for a walk with your pup, wherever you are. Philadelphia's weather changes with the seasons with the summer and winter months bringing the most dramatic temperature changes. Try to plan morning walks in the summer before it gets very hot and humid to protect doggie paws from the hot sidewalks. Afternoons are best if you want to walk your pet in the winter as the sun has melted some ice and you're able to see the icy patches.
Belmont's roads are mostly flat with a few small inclines here and there, so you shouldn't tire out too quickly on a walk. There aren't a lot of grassy areas throughout Belmont, but a few community parks and grassy lots offer a spot for a quick stop if need be. You can find some green along the sidewalks of North 40th Street, Belmont's eastern border.
Belmont doesn't have any large parks within its neighborhood boundaries, but you will find a few small grassy spots around.
