Wag! Walkers know Franklintown

Franklintown is located centrally in Philadelphia and is a short distance from the city's business district and historic landmarks. The neighborhood is accessible to cafes, eateries, shops, and services and locals can easily stroll the neighborhood and reach a variety of destinations.  


While traveling on foot, it is useful to have an umbrella handy as it frequently rains in Philadelphia. In winter, precipitation can turn to sleet or snow with cooler temperatures making footing treacherous. Fortunately, snow does not remain long as daytime temperatures usually warm up above the freezing mark, but pedestrians should have warm jackets and good footwear for cold snaps and snow. The temperatures in spring and fall are usually ideal for walking with your pup, but summer temperatures can become excessively hot and, coupled with humidity, can make walking uncomfortable. Try planning your walks earlier or later in the day so your pup doesn't miss out on their daily excursion.

What is the terrain like in Franklintown?

Franklintown is located north of Vine Street, south of Callowhill Street, and is centered around the vicinity of 17th and 18th Streets. Franklintown is a highly developed urban neighborhood with high rises, multi-story, and low rise buildings. Residents reside in apartment buildings, but there are also commercial buildings and office towers in the region. 


There is little green landscaping in this central urban area except in the nearby parks and the Callowhill Cut which is a former open brick-lined subway running just north of Franklintown. Dog walkers can cross this unique historical feature via bridges running over it. 


 Because there is a lot of traffic, busy streets, and parking lots in the district, pet owners should keep their furry friends on a leash and watch for vehicles at intersections. The terrain is flat, there are no steep hills to climb, and sidewalks that run beside busy streets provide safe pedestrian ways.

How many greenways are there in Franklintown?

There are several historic parks in the Franklintown region. Sister Cities Park is located directly south and has a ten geyser fountain, a children's garden, and a toy boat pond where kids can wade about. Paved trails in the park are a good place to walk your pup. 


Adjacent to Sister Cities is Logan Square, a unique historic park with historic buildings and high rise towers lining its borders. There are interesting sculptures in the park to check out when strolling the paved paths. Aviator Park is just west of Logan Square and is home to public artwork and memorials. 


Just north of Franklintown, Matthias Baldwin Park sits just north of the Callowhill Cut. This park has 2 acres of landscaped areas designed by a renowned artist. It is comprised of an oval center and cut into wedge-shaped, curved terraces. The park is beautifully landscaped with perennials and shade trees and is a lovely place to take your dog.
