Wag! Walkers know East Kensington

East Kensington is a rough neighborhood and is the traditional home of working-class Irish immigrants. There are a number of places here listed on the National Register of Historic Places including the 26th District Police and Patrol Station, the Kensington High School for Girls, and the Beatty's Mills Factory Building. Beyond this, many of the homes are older and in a state of disrepair, much like the streets and sidewalks. There are dog-friendly parks, pet supply stores, and more, all within driving distance. Most of the sidewalks here drop straight onto the street, further compounding the problem of finding somewhere green for your dog to walk on.聽

One issue that comes with so much pavement is that of burned paws in the summer. Keep in mind that when the temperature outside is in the eighties, the pavement is in the high 130s. This is hot enough to severely burn your dog's paws in seconds.聽

What is the terrain like in East Kensington?

Beyond slightly rolling hills, the only remarkable thing about East Kensington is its complete lack of grassy areas for you and your hound to walk or play on. It seems that no matter where you roam in the community, the one thing you never seem to run out of is pavement. Efforts are being made to change this by planting more trees, clearing out abandoned properties, and building more parks.聽

The good part is that the district is big enough that, with a little creativity, you should never have to hike the same route twice. In fact, the more varied you make your walks, the less bored you and your pup are likely to be. For better terrain, you need to take a drive out to Fairmount Park or Tacony Creek Park. Both of these offer acres of grassland and trails for the two of you to explore on a warm summer day.聽

How many greenways are there in East Kensington?

Unless someone paints the sidewalks green,聽you better be ready to drive from this concrete jungle to find聽green grass and trees. To the west is Fairmount Park, covering over 2000 acres of gently rolling terrain with several trails to hike along, bike along, and even horseback ride along. The trails lead deep into the woods where you will find more than a little peace and quiet communing with Mother Nature. During the summer months, the park is a part-time home for the Philadelphia Orchestra.聽

To the north is Tacony Creek Park that extends from the Melrose Country Club and runs all the way through Juniata Park. The creek itself forms an important part of a vast watershed that is vital to the health of the area. In recent years, there has been a notable move to improve the quality and safety of the park and attract more families and their pets.
