Wag! Walkers know Fox Chase

Fox Chase is a mostly residential neighborhood of northeast Philadelphia. The Fox Chase Cancer Center is located here and many residents who work at this major employer in the community can walk to work. Fox Chase also has an elementary school, a library, several churches, and historical buildings located in its boundaries. The area around Oxford Avenue and Rhawn Street has a dense concentration of commercial activity with plenty of shops, banks, fast food outlets, restaurants, and services. The renowned Pennypack Park borders the community and is accessible on foot. 


 While traveling around Fox Chase, pedestrians will encounter a variety of weather conditions throughout the year. Winters are relatively mild with above freezing temperatures, however, cold snaps can bring snow and icy conditions. Summers are beautiful and hot with high humidity. Make sure to take plenty of water for you and your dog on your excursions, seek out shade, and avoid the height of the day. 

What is the terrain like in Fox Chase?

The terrain is Fox Chase is relatively flat with only a few gentle inclines that are not taxing to climb. The area has some small walk up apartments and duplexes but is mainly comprised of single-family homes on large lots which are well landscaped. Homes in the district offer a variety of architectural styles, so there is plenty of variety when walking in the areas. Private properties with large trees provide welcome shade to streetscapes on hot summer days. Areas with single-family homes have sidewalks with grass berms which provide cool, soft footing for walking your dog. 


Public transportation train tracks run through the area and along the southern border and should be avoided while walking your pet and crossed only at designated pedestrian crossing points. The large Pennypack Park and Pennypack Creek are a prominent landscape features and several parks and green spaces in the area provide more natural landscaping.

How many greenways are there in Fox Chase?

Pennypack Park is a large natural area with Pennypack Creek running through it. The Pennypack Trail is over 5 miles long and takes pedestrians  over bridges, along the creek, and past historic sites. There is lots of wildlife in the park to spy and, if you look closely, you can make out old mill sites and long out of use rail lines. The Fox Chase Playground is centrally located and this recreational area is encompassed by a ring of trees. The park has ball diamonds, sports fields, and pedestrian paths to stroll with your pup.

Montgomery Lorimer Park is situated to the northeast and Burholme Park is situated in the northwest corner of Fox Chase.  Montgomery Lorimer Park surrounds the Fox Chase Farm and provides a large natural area with a creek. This large natural area provides plenty to explore if you exhaust Pennypack Park's resources, although that would be a challenge!
