Mantua is a small West Philadelphia neighborhood bordered by railroad tracks and the Schuylkill River to the east with Lancaster Avenue to the west. It's one of West Philadelphia's neighborhoods that is slowly rebounding from years of decline. During a walk in Mantua, you'll find that the area is comprised mostly of residential buildings and most commercial establishments sit along Lancaster Avenue, including West Pets, a local pet supply store. 

When you're planning a walk in the Mantua area, be sure to keep the weather in mind. Philadelphia operates on four seasons with sweltering days in the summer and cold, icy nights in the winter. Plan morning walks in the summer to avoid damaging puppy paws on hot sidewalks. In the winter, watch the forecast for snowstorms and head out during a sunny afternoon when most ice has melted off the streets in order to avoid any frostbitten toes.

Mantua is comprised mostly of blocks of classic Philly rowhomes and, thanks to recent revitalization, you'll find some modern, upscale buildings in the area. Your walk will take you down tree-lined sidewalks on fairly quiet streets. A walk in Mantua is perfect for older dogs who enjoy leisurely strolls or for the pups who enjoy exploring city streets. This is a unique neighborhood to explore and you might discover a mural painted on a building or public lawns to take a rest. 

It's always important to exercise caution when walking Fido on city streets. In Mantua, some sidewalks are narrow and some roads don't have a pedestrian pathway. Try to avoid those roads and keep your pet on a tight leash on the narrow paths. Lancaster Avenue is one of the busiest roadways in the neighborhood so always keep an eye out for other pedestrians, bikers, and fast-moving cars.

Although the neighborhood mostly features concrete sidewalks and brick buildings, you'll find several parks in Mantua and just outside the neighborhood borders. In the north is Miles Mack Playground. While you won't find a lot of grass here, it's a place to stop and watch a basketball game or admire the murals that surround the area. There is a small field next to the courts where you and Fido can relax. Southeast of Mantua, you'll find Drexel Park, a small area with walking paths and great city views. 

From Drexel Park, you can access the West Bank Schuylkill River Trail which offers a pathway separated from the roadways that also provides a scenic view as you walk along the river. If you're up for an adventure, consider crossing the river to Paine's Park where you'll find miles of walking paths and areas to rest and enjoy the day by the river!
