Lexington Park is a residential neighborhood of northeast Philadelphia. Locals in the area will find some commercial activity along the thoroughfare of Rhawn Street where restaurants, shops, and services are located. There is also a hospital in the district and a beautiful park within walking distance for residents. 


Dog walkers in Lexington Park need to be prepared for the wet weather, as it rains several days out of each month in Philly. On summer days when it is not raining, it is sunny, hot, and usually humid! Plan your excursion for earlier or later in the day to avoid extreme heat. Winters are cool but rarely below freezing for an extended period. A warm jacket will keep you snug on crisp winter days. Snow occurs in the area, although infrequently, and residents who walk their dogs regularly should be prepared for slippery conditions. Fortunately, snow does not stick around long in the neighborhood as daytime temperatures melt snow cover.

Lexington Park is bordered by the busy Roosevelt Boulevard on the north and the tranquil Pennypack Park and Pennypack Creek on the west, south, and east. This large natural space is a prominent feature of the area and is highly visible. There are some slopes and inclines in Lexington Park, but they are not steep, and pedestrians with pets usually do not find them a challenge to climb. 


The neighborhood streets have sidewalks and grass berms providing safe, cool walkways for dog walkers and their pups. Cool grassy berms make for softer footing and protect your pup's paws on hot days. The area is neatly landscaped with attractive homes and properties. Some areas have large shade trees while other sections are more open. Homes in the neighborhood were mostly built post-World War II and consist mainly of duplexes and single-family homes with some apartment complexes in the region.

Lexington Park canines are fortunate to have the beautiful and spacious Pennypack Park and Creek surrounding their home neighborhood. The Pennypack Park greenway has 1,600 acres of natural landscape with the Pennypack Creek flowing through it. The Pennypack Trail runs through the park and provides 5.4 miles of hiking path that is used by dog walkers, pedestrians, joggers, cyclists, and even equestrians. The trail runs from Rockledge to Byberry Road and follows an old rail line. On its course, it passes over several bridges and makes its way past historic sites in the park. 


Pennypack Park has many attractions including playgrounds, a historic church, a working farm, and the oldest stone bridge currently in use. The park has rolling hills, open spaces, great trees, and a multitude of trails to explore. When strolling the park, keep an eye out for wildfire. The park is home to 150 species of birds and the remnants of old mills and railroad grades.
