Wag! Walkers know Nicetown

Nicetown is an older neighborhood of north Philadelphia that is sometimes referred to as Nicetown-Tioga. There is a hospital on the eastern border, schools, a library, and a college. There are shops, restaurants, and other services that are well distributed and residents of Nicetown can reach many local businesses on foot.聽


There is plenty of pleasant walking weather in Nicetown with mild temperatures throughout the year. Although winter days can be cool, the temperatures usually climb above the freezing mark in the day, melting any snow that accumulates during cold snaps. Philadelphia has plenty of wet weather with rain and precipitation falling several days throughout the year and necessitating rain jackets and umbrellas. If you are walking with your dog in Philly and your pup does not appreciate the wet weather, you can purchase a waterproof jacket and even a doggie umbrella to keep your furry friend dry. Summer heat is often accompanied by humidity and extreme temperatures.聽

What is the terrain like in Nicetown?

Nicetown can also be defined as a smaller area bounded by Broad Street, Hunting Park Avenue, Clarissa Street, and Wingohocking Street. The Wayne Junction Station on the northern edge is the future site of a natural gas power plant and will not be an accessible area to pet owners and their pups in the future. La Salle University has a campus that extends into the northern area and there are large historic schools located nearby that are dominant landscape features.


The train tracks run along the west border and present a barrier to pedestrian traffic. When walking with your dog in Nicetown, be sure to cross the tracks at designated crossing points to ensure your safety. There is a retirement community, multi-story apartments, and beautiful townhouses and duplexes with unique architectural features like bay windows that add character to this older developed neighborhood. The terrain is relatively flat and easy for a pedestrian to traverse.

How many greenways are there in Nicetown?

Nicetown Park is situated on the north side of the community and this small triangular park has play structures, benches, trees, and open lawns along with paved pedestrian paths to enjoy with your canine companion. Fernhill Park is a larger park also situated on the north end of Nicetown. The Roosevelt Expressway runs on an overpass through the park which allows the park's trails to provide uninterrupted walking paths through this green space. There are some recreational facilities and fields in the park and lots of large trees and grassy lawns with pedestrian ways winding through them, providing an ideal dog walking location.

Hunting Park lies a short distance to the northeast and provides 87 acres of recreational and natural green space. This large urban park has plenty of pedestrian paths to stroll with your pup and enjoy the trees and lawns while checking out the many sports and other recreational activities taking place nearby.
