Aptly named after the creek that makes up its western border, Cobbs Creek is an expansive neighborhood with easy access to one of Philadelphia's largest hiking areas. Though it's located in West Philly, Cobb's Creek is also known as the "Southside" because of its southern location below Market Street. Recent construction projects are revitalizing the community and several transportation options make it easy to access. 

Residential buildings surround most of Cobb's Creek's streets, but there are a few areas with shopping and dining. While there aren't any pet stores in the neighborhood, South 52nd Street still offers a variety of local businesses. You'll find an art gallery, hair salons, and many different restaurants along this busy roadway. Cobb's Creek is a relatively large neighborhood with many streets to explore and you can easily lose yourself within its blocks. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the area and plan out a route ahead of time to avoid getting lost.

Cobb's Creek is a unique neighborhood because you can choose what type of walk you want. If you want a short, easy walk down city streets, the eastern part of the neighborhood is where you'll find most of the hustle and bustle of a typical city. The majority of Cobb's Creek is city sidewalks along busy roadways. If you're looking for some challenging hills or want to explore, the sprawling Cobbs Creek Park is just outside the neighborhood's western border. 

Because Cobb's Creek is so close to Philly's downtown area, there are several busy streets you should be aware of. To name a few, Baltimore Avenue, the neighborhood's southern border, has a trolley line crossing through the middle of the road and Chestnut and Walnut Streets in the north have multiple lanes of traffic and bike lanes. While they can be exciting areas to explore, make sure to keep your pet on a tight leash.

Cobb's Creek is renowned for its easy access to Cobbs Creek Park and its miles of trails that travel along the creek. The 3.7-mile paved trail starts by Market Street - the northern part of the Cobb's Creek community - and ends all the way near 70th Street in Elmwood. The trail runs through shaded areas and offers scenic views of Cobb's Creek, making it a destination for many nature lovers. You can also stop at the Cobb's Creek Community Environmental Education Center and learn more about the area that surrounds you. 

If you're looking for less of a hike and more of a stop along the way, there are several small parks in the neighborhood. Christy Park features a few athletic fields as well as places to sit and catch a game or two. Sherwood Park is a triangular greenway on Baltimore Avenue that has walking paths and shaded benches away from the busy road.
