When walking with your dog in the Wyndmoor region, you will need to be “kitted up” for wet weather. Rainy days are frequent in the spring and summer and occasional thunderstorms should be avoided. Winters are quite cold with some sub-freezing temperatures and snow. Cold snaps will require warm outerwear for daily walks.
Wyndmoor is a rectangular shaped suburban neighborhood occupying 1.6 square miles. It is bordered by Cheltenham Avenue on the northeast side, Paper Mill Road on the northwest, Stenton Avenue on the southwest, and Ivy Hill Road on the southeast.
There is a commercial area on the southeast side with more traffic and shops, but most of the region is made up of single-family detached homes of varying architectural styles. Homes are set on well-spaced properties with large lawns. Yards are well landscaped and attractively maintained in the area, creating a pleasant backdrop for walks with your dog. There are some slight inclines, but no steep grades to walk up and down, so people and pets of all ability levels can get around easily.
Separate sidewalks are available throughout most of the neighborhood and there are some natural wooded areas in and around Wyndmoor with a creek running through the north end and a large forested area located centrally.
Wyndmoor canines are fortunate to have 117 acres of green spaces and parks located in their region. It's great for lots of play and walks! Veterans Park is a six-acre recreational park with ball fields and a pavilion located. The larger Cisco Park is located on the west side of the community and has a walking trail for strolls and a stocked fish pond to walk around. This greenway is 13 acres in size and has sports fields and facilities.
Laurel Beech Park is situated on 6.5 acres of greenway and provides an attractive recreational park with large open spaces worth a visit while trekking through the neighborhood while Wyndhill Park, also called Elephant Park, has an open field surrounded by trees.
A large natural wooded area located nearby is also a great place to explore with your pet. Remember to keep your dog leashed in parks that are not designated as off-leash and bring supplies to clean up after them!
