Named after the traffic circle at Roosevelt Boulevard and Oxford Avenue, Oxford Circle is a bustling neighborhood in northeast Philadelphia. The region features a mix of residential, retail, and dining and is also home to the Old Trinity Church, one of the oldest churches in the country dating back to the 17th century. With historic landmarks and plenty to do around Oxford Circle, you and your pup will love a stroll through this neighborhood. Check the weather before you head out, though! Summers and winters in Philadelphia bring extreme temperatures and changing weather patterns. Fall and spring are fairly mild, making them the best time for a long walk in the city. 

In case of emergency, the Castor Animal Hospital is conveniently situated in the middle of the neighborhood. While there aren't any pet stores within the community, there is a pet supply store in the Roosevelt Mall which borders Oxford Circle to the northeast.

The majority of Oxford Circle consists of flat street blocks, but you may encounter a hill or two. Castor Avenue, one of the neighborhood's main business streets, sits on a hill. Don't let it deter you from your walk, though! If your pooch is older or you're just looking for an easy walk, there are plenty of areas throughout Oxford Circle that offer just that. There's also green space throughout the neighborhood if you need a rest. Look out for one of the large community parks or find a tree-lined sidewalk to enjoy your day. 

Whether you want to window shop or explore parks, Oxford Circle has a little bit of everything, including busy roads. Roosevelt Avenue is a wide road with several grassy dividers and, while you're protected from cars with a verge, crossing the street might be difficult. Avoid this, PA-73 or Cotton Avenue, and Castor Avenue if you want a more peaceful walk.

With several greenways within neighborhood boundaries, Oxford Circle offers plenty of exploration opportunities for you and your pup. There are a lot of tree-lined sidewalks and grassy spots along the way if you need a rest. While there aren't any off-leash areas within the community, the parks still allow leashed dogs to enjoy. The Tarken and Jardel playgrounds feature grassy spots to sit and relax while the Max Myers Recreation Area features 12 acres of land with several sports fields and courts, a pool, and grassy spots with benches where you can rest with your pup on a warm afternoon. 

If you're willing to venture out of the neighborhood a little, Pennypack Park to the northeast features miles of trails through a natural creekside setting away from busy roads. To the northwest is Tacony Creek Park, another creekside greenbelt with trails perfect for a long walk with your pet. Both of these are great options.
