Wag! Walkers know Haverford North

Haverford North is an older community of single-family and row houses that are definitely showing its age. The crime rates here are above average, making it challenging to feel safe going for walks unless you have another person with you. There are plenty of sidewalks for the two or three of you to stroll along, but like the area, they are in serious state of disrepair, forcing you to pay close attention to your every step. There are several open green spaces, but most of them are where the city has come in and demolished abandoned properties. 

The climate here is glorious in the summer with temperatures in the 80s and plenty of sunshine. On the other side of the coin, winters can be quite brutal with temperatures staying below freezing for weeks. Plenty of sleet, rain, and ice, and up to 15 inches or more of snow can be found here, so expect some harsh winters. 

What is the terrain like in Haverford North?

'Flat and crumbled' is a good description of the terrain in Haverford North. While there are sidewalks, they are broken, twisted, and ice-heaved, making it hard to walk in many parts of town. Your best hope of finding ways to keep your walks a little more interesting is to change routes frequently and go out of the community in search of new places to walk. While there are no parks in the city, there are several just outside of the neighborhood. The basic concept is to stretch out your walks until you find a few routes that work for you and your pup. 

Consider walking over to Mill Creek Playground and take the trail around the park or Lucien Blackwell Park where you can romp around on the grass. Just to the south lies Lee Park with baseball diamonds, tennis courts, a football field, and plenty of grass and trails for your pooch to explore. 

How many greenways are there in Haverford North?

If there is one thing lacking in Haverford North, it has to be public parks and green spaces. This really doesn't leave you much choice if you want a vast expanse of grass, trees, and trails to take your dog out for long walks in nature. The only real option you have is to drive north to Fairmount Park, the site of the 1876 Centennial Exposition with over 10 million visitors. Today, the park is split on the east and west sides of the Schuylkill River and covers over 2000 acres. This incredibly quiet oasis in the middle of a bustling city offers a relaxing waterfront, easy trails, and rolling hills. There is always plenty of shade under the canopy of the woods running throughout the park. You and your pup will enjoy the miles of trails that are also rated for horseback riding, deep-woods hiking with your dog, and off-road cycling.
