Olney is a mix of residential, retail and dining, and parkland area. With so much to do, you and your pup will be able to see and discover a lot. Make sure to check the weather forecast beforehand though, especially during the summer when the pavement gets very hot. Hold your hand to the sidewalk for about five seconds and, if it's too hot for you, it's too hot for your pup!
You'll find wide streets with a lot of trees, but you'll also walk narrow sidewalks with no protection from the road. Keep your pet on a tight leash when you're walking near moving vehicles, especially if you're on a narrow pathway. Roosevelt Boulevard is one of Olney's busiest streets with many lanes of traffic, so make sure to exercise extra caution when crossing here.
If you want to do more hiking on your walk, head east. Olney's eastern border is Tacony Creek where you'll find a three-mile trail along the water. The trail is paved, welcomes leashed pets, and is a great place to escape and explore nature. You can walk all the way to the end of Tacony Creek Park where you'll find scenic views of the creek and surrounding foliage.
