Hunting Park and the subsection of Franklinville is located in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This neighborhood is well supplied with schools and churches, some of which are listed on the Register of Historic Places and make excellent walking destinations to admire their architecture. There are commercial activity centers on the northeast and northwest sides of the region, and main thoroughfares in the area have many shops, restaurants, and services. The population is also served by a subway line. 

Summers in this area can be uncomfortably hot and muggy and walking at cooler times of the day, packing water, and wearing breathable clothing is advised. Rain frequently occurs in Philadelphia throughout the year, so a waterproof jacket and umbrella will keep your walks drier! Winters are moderately cold with temperatures around the freezing mark, so dog walkers will need a warm coat for themselves and maybe for their furry friends too.

The terrain in this neighborhood has some gentle slopes, but pedestrians walking their pups are usually not hampered on their excursions by steep inclines. The Franklinville area was once an industrial area, and some industrial activity remains on the northeast side of the community. Commercial areas are also concentrated on the northeast and northwest of the area and traffic, parking lots, and noise does not make these ideal places to stroll with your pet. 

There are many residential roads which tend to be narrow and have sidewalks including the Rising Sun Avenue which has shops and services located along it. A large cemetery sits on the east side and Hunting Park provides a green space on the north side of the district. Most residential homes in the area are single-family townhouses or row houses with historic architectures, bay windows, and covered verandas. Residences are closely spaced and residential properties have some mature landscaping but are not large.

Hunting Park is situated on the northern border of the area and this park features athletic fields, a recreation center, and sports facilities, but also has large open lawns and trees with greenways winding around the property.

A short drive east will take you and your pup to Tacony Park. This 300-acre watershed park features multiple trails and streamside property where residents can fish. This park has long trails to stroll, providing you keep your pup leashed and watch out for fishing lines near the creek.  

Fairmount Park is a short drive to the west. This huge park has more than 2000 acres of parkland and miles of trail to wear out your energetic pup. Cyclists and horseback riders share the trail so watch out for bikes or equestrians that may startle your dog. Your furry friend should be on a leash for safety so they are not startled by other users or become lost in this vast park!
