First named for the abundance of breweries that once dotted the area, Brewerytown stands as a primarily residential historic community in northern Philadelphia today. It's a neighborhood of history, arts, food, and culture, and provides an entertaining place to walk your pet. You'll walk past old architecture including former brewhouses-turned-businesses. Both you and Fido can enjoy some window shopping, especially along West Girard Avenue, where you'll find cafes and shops as well as a pet groomer and veterinary clinic. Just a few blocks north is another local pet groomer. 

Make sure to check the weather before you head out for a walk in Brewerytown. The neighborhood is comprised mainly of concrete sidewalks which can heat up during the hot, humid Philly summers. Hot concrete is not good for doggy paws. Try to plan morning walks in the summer before the temperature rises very high.

From admiring the buildings to checking out the shops, it won't be a boring walk in Brewerytown. While the neighborhood is mostly flat land, you might encounter a hill or two. However, Brewerytown provides you and your pup an easy stroll down city streets. As it's mostly made up of concrete sidewalks and blocks of buildings, there isn't an abundance of natural foliage in the area. You'd be lucky to find several patches of grass along your walk, otherwise, most of Brewerytown's natural splendor sits within its parks. 

Despite that, Brewerytown is still a unique and exciting place to walk your pup. As you stroll through the community, watch out for street-level train cars along West Girard Avenue. Many of Brewerytown's streets are one-way, but you'll want to look both ways when crossing the street, just in case. Practicing safety during your walk will ensure you and your pet have a fantastic excursion.

What Brewerytown lacks in random green spaces, it makes up for in its number of sprawling parks. The Athletic Square Park is a piece of land dedicated to athletic fields and facilities and makes for a great spot to sit and watch a game. The 30th and Jefferson Street Park is a small baseball field where you and your pup can watch the players on a sunny day.

The best part about Brewerytown's location is its proximity to one of Philadelphia's largest park systems. Fairmount Park makes up the neighborhood's western border, offering residents and visitors sprawling land to hike, play, and explore. You can head to the southern part of the park to explore the Azalea Garden or Paine's Park, a riverside space with a skate park and walking paths. In the northern part of Fairmount Park, you'll find the Glendinning Rock Garden as well as several miles of walking paths through expansive parkland.
