Garden Court and the greater Philadelphia area definitely experiences all four seasons. The spring and winter seasons tend to be wetter than the rest of the year. Spring will definitely bring plenty of showers while winter will be freezing, icy, and with plenty of snowfall. Summers can get quite warm and humid while fall tends to be a bit more mild. As always, you and Fido should check the forecast before heading outside.
Thankfully for you and Fido, Garden Court seems to an easily walkable neighborhood. It is quite flat, so you and your pup shouldn't stumble into excessively difficult hills while out walking. Additionally, because this neighborhood is completely artificial terrain, you and Fido will have plenty of sidewalks to keep you safe from oncoming traffic. Most sidewalks are also shaded with beautiful, large trees, so you will have some shade during hot, muggy summer days. Thankfully, there are also two greenways in Garden Court and a few others nearby if you are looking for a new adventure.The boundaries of Garden Court include Locust Street to the northeast, South 46th Street to the east, Cedar Avenue to the southwest, and South 52nd Street to the west. Spruce Street and South 48th Street, other major roadways through Garden Court, seem to be home to more commercial areas and will likely have more traffic for you and your pup to watch out for.
The smaller of the two greenways in Garden Court is Barkan Park. This smaller greenway has a playground and a few places to stop and rest. Either way, this is a great place to stop if Fido needs a short pit stop while out walking around. Other nearby greenways include Walnut Hill Community Playground, Spruce Hill Bird Sanctuary, Clark Park, Hamilton Village, Lee Park, and Christy Park. Cobbs Creek Park, however, is the largest nearby greenway.
Unfortunately, the nearest dog park seems to be five miles away. Kent Dog Park is a small off-leash area for your pup to run off some extra energy.
