Byberry is in the outer northeast part of Philadelphia. This neighborhood has a history of a strong abolitionist presence and may have been an important stop on the Underground Railroad. This area has been settled since the 1670s when four brothers came from England and chose the land near Poquessing Creek, which later became Byberry. They named it Byberry after their home town near Bristol.
There are lots of businesses to serve the canine in your life in this historic area. Offleash K9 Training can teach you to communicate with your dog even when they are off-leash. Philadelphia Dog Training University provides you with more options in dog training. If you are looking for your new best friend, Victory Dog Rescue may be the place to find them! You don’t even have to leave your house, much less your neighborhood with Dog Gone Clean Mobile Pet Grooming. Put your mind at rest in case your dog needs medical care with the VCA Knightswood Animal Hospital.
This is a wonderful neighborhood to explore with your dog. Gorgeous, stately townhomes sit on large lots that are almost never fenced. Queen Anne and Cape Cod homes are both common with smaller ranch style or Craftsman single-family homes as well. Landscaping is beautiful and the wide expanses of grass can almost make you feel like you are walking through a park.
Many yards are dotted with lovely mature trees, but there is not much tree cover along the road. There is a sidewalk that is separated from the road by a grassy divider on both sides of the road, so you will feel comfortable walking your dog on a loose leash throughout this area.
If you are craving some wilderness after the well ordered streets of Byberry, just find your way into one of the many fingers of Montgomery Lorimer Park. This gorgeous park provides all kinds of wilderness experiences for you and your dog to enjoy.
Byberry is fortunate enough to be nestled into the expanse of Montgomery Lorimer Park. This gorgeous forested park follows the winding path of the charming little Pennypack Creek. The Pennypack Trail runs along the creek so you can enjoy views of the creek throughout your experience in the park. Your dog will love smelling the wildlife along the water as well as exploring the dense forest.
This huge natural area extends up to Pennypack Park and follows the creek all the way to the Delaware River, so even if you and your dog are dedicated, adventurous backpackers, you will find an incredible experience here. If you follow the park as far as it goes in the other way, you will find the Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust and the Masons Mill Park. With all of these wilderness areas to explore, you will never run out of new places to discover with your dog.
