Residents that walk with their dogs in Jordantown will find that summers can be both hot and humid with muggy conditions that can make walking difficult in the heat of the day. Walking with your pup at different times of the day to avoid the heat is a good idea to avoid dehydration, especially if you have a long-haired dog. Winters are damp too, but cold, with some freezing temperatures, rain, sleet, and sometimes even snow to contend with. Dress warm and avoid stormy winter weather.
The area is mostly flat with some gentle inclines and curving roads that are easy to navigate. This developed residential area has lots of shade trees and greenery in summer to keep residents and their pets cool as well as parks and schools with open green spaces to enjoy.
The Merchantville Bike Path runs east-west through the southern border of Jordantown and residents that enjoy cycling with their dogs can travel through the community and visit adjacent neighborhoods served by this greenway. If you have a dog with a lot of energy, this is a great way to burn off some of that extra zip.
Other local parks include Stockton Park and Collins Tract Park. These green areas have paved pedestrian paths around them, so keep your dog on a leash and off playground areas in order to fully enjoy the walking trails!
