Wag! Walkers know Germantown Southwest

Germantown Southwest is a residential neighborhood located on the north side of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With a residential population of 6,867, this neighborhood is a subsection of the larger Germantown region. Germantown Southwest has a commercial corridor located along Wayne Avenue with many restaurants, shops, and services that area residents can access on foot. There are also schools, libraries, and historical places in the district to walk. 


The weather in Philadelphia varies with the season. Summers are hot and humid and dog walkers may opt to walk earlier or later in the day to avoid extreme heat. Rain can occur throughout the year in this coastal location, so rain gear should be handy for you and your dog's daily walks. Winters are cold, although most days reach above freezing and any snow that falls normally doesn't stick around. You should be able to pin-point some ideal walking weather year-round in this neighborhood. 

What is the terrain like in Germantown Southwest?

This residential neighborhood has a mixture of low rise apartments, single-family homes, row houses and multi-family housing units.  Many homes are older character homes or historic buildings as this residual urban area has a long history of development. The historic development of the area means landscaping is mature with plenty of greenery, hedges, lawns, and other features that give the area a suburban-like feel. There is a large highway and interchange on the south border that is not pedestrian-friendly with high-speed traffic, noise, and limited pedestrian access. This area should be avoided when walking with your pup. 


A train track runs along the west side of the neighborhood and creates a barrier to pedestrians in the region. The neighborhood has some hilly terrain and there are some gentle inclines and steep sections on some roads.  If you or your dog has mobility issues, you may want to avoid steep inclines that are difficult to hike up.

How many greenways are there in Germantown Southwest?

Fernhill Park sits adjacent to Germantown Southwest on its south side. This beautiful park has recreation and sports facilities, natural areas, open lawns, and treed areas, providing something for everyone to enjoy. There is also plenty of greenways throughout the park where you can walk your dog on a leash, providing your clean up after your pet. There are even picnic sites and barbecues so you can pack a lunch to enjoy with your pet.

Kay Park is located in the Germantown Southwest neighborhood. This 30-acre park has open spaces with shade trees. Enjoy a stroll under the trees in fall for some beautiful autumn colors or shade in the summer. It makes for a great place to walk, play, or rest with your dog. 

A large recreation center and grounds are located just north of Kay Park and paved walkways on the property provide greenways for residents and their pooches.
