Wag! Walkers know Kingsessing

Kingsessing is a large neighborhood located in the southwest region of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The neighborhood is well serviced by shops and restaurants, businesses, a recreation center and a library, churches, and schools that are located along the main thoroughfares. Residents can reach a variety of destinations on foot and the area is highly walkable. 


Dog walkers and pedestrians in Kingsessing experience variable Philadelphia weather. There are plenty of hot sunny days and almost as many rainy days throughout the year! Winters are cool, although temperatures usually reach above the freezing mark, so snow cover does not linger long. Spring and fall are generally pleasant although frequent rain requires rain jackets and umbrellas to stay dry. Avoid taking your dog out in extreme heat during the summer months so that you and your pup do not become dehydrated or suffer from heat-related illnesses. Morning and evening may be more comfortable times for daily walks with your pooch.

What is the terrain like in Kingsessing?

Kingsessing is bordered by Cobbs Creek on the west and the Schuylkill River on the south. This is a large neighborhood region with varying terrain and there are some areas with inclines although they are not usually steep and do not impede pedestrian traffic. 


Train tracks run along the south and east sections of the district and create barriers for pedestrians that must be crossed at designated crossing spots. There are trolley tracks along Chester Avenue and, when crossing this main thoroughfare, pet owners should check for cars, trucks, and public vehicles. Most homes in the area are duplexes and townhouses closely set on narrow lots. There is plenty of landscaping with mature trees and lawns and the area is very attractive. 


Green spaces and industrial areas are situated along the river. The industrial areas are not pedestrian-friendly and should be avoided in favor of more amenable recreational and garden areas in this section of the neighborhood.

How many greenways are there in Kingsessing?

Bartram's Garden is located along the Schuylkill River and features beautifully manicured gardens and a visitor's center. It is the oldest botanical garden in North America and has historic trees on the river. There are walking trails through the picturesque grounds and along the riverfront to stroll with your pup on a leash. 


The Cobbs Creek Park borders Kingsessing to the east. This park is a large natural area with Cobbs Creek winding through it. The Cobbs Creek Trail also runs through the park with many smaller connecting greenways. The main trail is 3.7 miles long and asphalt covered. Cyclists, dog walkers, and joggers share the tree-lined trail that takes visitors to historic sites and educational venues. When following the trail in its entirety, hikers will encounter two historic bridges that cross the creek and there are restaurants and cafes accessible for those looking for a quick snack. Grab something on the go to share with your furry friend!
