Wag! Walkers know Franklinville

For decades, Franklinville was a major industrial area. But like many other areas of Philly, when industry started to leave the area, so too did the money. Along with the jobs and money leaving the community, the people moved on for greener pastures, leaving Franklinville to fall into decay and ruin. Today, the area continues to decline and suffer from moderate urban decay. This is not the kind of neighborhood you should walk alone in, even if you take your pup on the walks with you.聽

The streets and sidewalks are poorly maintained, but at least they give the two of you somewhere to walk. The community has large areas where entire blocks of row houses have been demolished. Hunting Park sits in the middle of the community and offers trails and grass to walk on. There are plenty of eateries in the neighborhood to try, but if you want a decent pet supply store, plan to drive to Port Richmond or Brewerytown.聽

What is the terrain like in Franklinville?

The terrain here is mostly flat and paved but is, for the most part, showing some significant urban decay. The sidewalks are falling apart, cracked, and filled with weeds which makes for a tricky place to navigate during your daily walks. However, living in Franklinville leaves you with little choice in the matter. For your own safety, you should do your best to keep your walks to daylight hours and always try to take someone else with you. Remember to keep a very close eye on the pavement itself for anything that could damage your dog's paws like broken glass, cans, broken bottles, or even discarded needles.聽

A much safer and better option would be to hop in the car and cruise to Hunting Park. This 10-acre park offers numerous sports fields, a running track, a pool, and a walking track that goes all the way around the park for the two of you to get your exercise on.聽

How many greenways are there in Franklinville?

Franklinville offers more in the way of green space than many other areas of Philly. Unfortunately, many of these come from the demolition of entire residential blocks as the neighborhood fell into disrepair. However, these areas are not only private property, but may also not be the safest place for you to visit. Not only could one of you become injured, but you could get into trouble for trespassing.聽

Beyond Hunting Park, you are within easy driving distance of Fairmount Park where there are acres of forest and miles of trails for you to explore. This is an excellent and very safe place to go walking and a great way to get out in the fresh air together. The park is right next door to the Philadelphia Zoo and across the Schuylkill River from the other half of the park and the Please Touch Museum along with many more acres of grass and trails.聽
