Wag! Walkers know Francisville

Francisville is a small, triangular neighborhood north of Philadelphia. Fairmount is to its south, North Philadelphia East to the north, and Fairmount Park to the west. This area was settled before the uniform streets of Philadelphia had extended north to it, so it has a unique street grid compared to the rest of the area. The neighborhood was probably a little village along the route from Philadelphia to East Falls.

While there are still many historic buildings in Francisville, in some areas, old buildings have been destroyed to build modern apartment buildings. There are plenty of businesses to cater to your dog just to the west of Francisville. A pet supply store provides affordable pet supplies and grooming to the busy pup while Best in Show Grooming will get your pup ready for the show ring or the dog park in style. The Green Street Dog Park is the perfect place for your dog to play off-leash.

What is the terrain like in Francisville?

This tiny neighborhood provides a varied walking experience with newer apartment buildings across the street from historic old buildings with ornate details. Some homes have a strange effect with the homes on either side of them having been razed, so they stand alone, narrow and with no windows on the now exposed sides.

This is clearly a neighborhood in transition with historic fighting with modern aesthetics. This can be a fascinating walk and more open lots make for more grassy areas than nearby parts of Philadelphia. There is no divider between the sidewalk and the road and in most areas, the sidewalk isn’t wide, so you will keep your dog on a close leash. 

The Francisville Playground has a wide grassy space that is a perfect place to play an on-leash game of fetch with your pup. The obstacle-free grassy space is a great place for all kinds of training and sports. 

How many greenways are there in Francisville?

There are a few regional parks in this area like the Francisville Playground and Roberto Clemente Park, but for some real natural exploration, head towards the Schuylkill River. This lovely river winds through the sprawling Fairmount Park which has forested areas to explore as well as grasslands along with the lovely riverside.

The Philadelphia Zoo offers interesting new stimuli in the sounds and smells your dog may hear or smell from within. It is important that your dog has experiences with novel stimuli like new animals and water from an early age and this river park is a wonderful place to create this positive experiences. Plenty of trails throughout the park make it easy for you to navigate while your dog enthusiastically follows their nose. Choose to stick to the river or hike through deep forest. This park offers a varied and exciting walk for you and your dog.
