Fernhill is a small residential area bordered by Fernhill Park and the Roosevelt Expressway on the south and Germantown on the north. There is a large rail yard and train tracks along the east side of Fernhill and these areas along with the expressway are not pedestrian-friendly areas and should be avoided when strolling through the neighborhood with your pet.


The terrain is a well developed urban landscape with narrow streets densely packed with row houses, duplexes, and single-family homes. Many homes in the area have historic architecture and add character to the neighborhood. Narrow streets are often one way and there are some brick roads in the community adding varied texture and interest.

The community is flat and there are no steep hills to hike up. There are several small urban parks in the area as well as the Fernhill Park, providing natural landscaping to the area that is otherwise limited due to the densely packed residential properties.
