Wag! Walkers know Holmesburg

Holmesburg is located in Northeast Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Residents of this area can find plenty of commercial businesses nearby along main thoroughfares and well distributed in the community, usually within a reasonable walking distance of most homes. Frankford Avenue runs east-west through the northern section of Holmesbury and is an important street lined with shops, restaurants, and services. There is also a recreation center, many schools, and churches in the neighborhood.

 

The weather in Philadelphia can be a little on the wet side! Philadelphians gets more than the national average of precipitation. Rain can occur in any monthand good rain gear for walking is a must for residents that frequently travel on foot. Summer days can be hot and humid and residents should avoid exerting themselves or their pets in muggy weather as dehydration can be an issue. Winter months are relatively mild, although cooler days and snowfall does occur, requiring warmer outerwear and proper footwear to traverse the neighborhood.

What is the terrain like in Holmesburg?

Holmesburg is bordered by Pennypack Park and the Pennypack Creek which wrap around the north and east sides of the neighborhood. The Delaware River borders the community on the south side and there is plenty of coastline. Most residences in the neighborhood are two-story, single-family homes, although there are also apartment complexes, buildings, duplexes, and triplexes in the region. 


The Delaware Expressway runs from east to west through the southern section of the community. The expressway is surrounded by commercial and industrial activity and several correctional facilities. The entire region around the expressway is not designed for pedestrian travel and should be avoided when walking your dog as fast-moving traffic, train tracks, and large trucks servicing the local institutions create plenty of noise, making this an undesirable walking location. The Holmesburg region has some inclines and slopes to traverse, but they are not steep and do not usually impede pedestrian traffic.

How many greenways are there in Holmesburg?

Pennypack Park is a large natural park stretching for 9 miles and covering 1,600 acres with wetlands, meadows, and woodland that provide homes to many birds, mammals, and other wildlife in the area. The park also has some historical sites and a working farm located within its boundaries. The Pennypack Creek winds through the park and so does the Pennypack Trail, a 15-mile long greenway that runs along an old rail line. The trail is hard surfaced and accessible to wheelchairs, cyclists, dog walkers, joggers, and horseback riders who all share the path, so be vigilant for other users and keep your dog on a leash.

Russo Park is located in Holmesburg and provides a playground, basketball courts, ball fields, open and treed areas, and paved pedestrian paths. Alternatively, Pleasant Hill Park is situated on the river and there is a boat lunch nearby. This 35-acre park has walking trails to enjoy some river scenery with your pet.
