Wag! Walkers know Lawndale

Located in North Philadelphia, the suburban neighborhood of Lawndale is a walkable neighborhood with both residential homes and commercial activity. Many businesses that can be accessed on foot are located along Rising Sun Avenue and there is a more heavily concentrated commercial region in the northern part of the district. The community also has several churches with landscaped properties and historic buildings that make interesting walking destinations. 


The weather in this section of Philadelphia provides variable conditions for on-foot travel. You will need a variety of outerwear to make walking comfortable throughout the year. Winter weather is moderately cold. Although daytime temperatures usually climb above freezing, sub-freezing temperatures can occur. If you have a short-haired dog or one that is not acclimatized to the cold, your dog may appreciate a warm, waterproof coat. In the summer, you may choose to walk your pup earlier or later in the day to avoid hot and muggy conditions.

What is the terrain like in Lawndale?

Lawndale is a suburban, residential community with commercial activity in some sections and along main roads with over 200 shops, restaurants, and services located in the district. The area is home to 29,791 residents and is located south of Cottman Avenue near Rising Sun Avenue and Oxford Avenue. There are a variety of residential homes with row houses, walk up apartments, duplexes, single-family homes, and some large estate-like houses all located within the community. 


There is plenty of mature landscaping in the district with large shade trees on properties and residential roads supplying much-appreciated shade on summer days. This neighborhood has many narrow streets, but there are sidewalks and grass berms along many of them that provide cool, soft footing for your pup on walks. Lawndale terrain has some sloping areas although hills are not steep and they are generally not difficult to walk around.

Tacony Creek Park is located adjacent to Lawndale on the northeast side of the community.  This 300-acre park has an accessible creek and is a large watershed and woodland area.

The park is the habitat of local wildlife that makes this natural area their home.
