Wag! Walkers know Roxborough

Roxborough is a large neighborhood located in the northwest region of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Ridge Avenue, which runs through the neighborhood roughly north-south, is the main commercial corridor with shops, services, and restaurants. There are also schools and libraries in the Roxborough district. Most residential areas are within walking distance of commercial services.  


Dog walkers in Philadelphia need to be prepared for the wet weather as rain occurs several days each month. In winter, sub-freezing temperatures can result in snowfall which makes pedestrian ways treacherous. Since daytime temperatures usually rise above freezing in winter, wait for snow and ice to melt off sidewalks before venturing out with your pup to avoid slips and falls. Summer is humid and hot and heat-related illnesses can occur in animals and people. Avoid walking with your dog during the hottest part of the day and make sure you and your pet stay hydrated.

What is the terrain like in Roxborough?

Roxborough is a large neighborhood region which contains several sub-neighborhoods. The area is hilly with high elevations and many television and radio stations have their transmission towers located here. There are many architecturally interesting bridges crossing the adjacent waterways. 


The region is physically separated from surrounding urban Philadelphia neighborhoods by the Wissahickon Creek, giving the community a suburban feel. Homes in the community consist of duplexes, condominiums, a seniors community, single-family homes, and row houses. Many structures date back to the late 19th and early 20th century which provides some historic character to the district. 


The terrain varies in this large region with some areas being relatively flat while other locations have more elevation changes. Streets tend to wind and follow terrain in hilly areas, so inclines are not too steep for pedestrians. There are golf courses, a reservoir, recreational facilities, sports fields, and cemeteries in the Roxborough region creating varied green spaces.

How many greenways are there in Roxborough?

Roxborough canines are fortunate to be sandwiched between two prominent waterside greenways: the Wissahickon Creek Trail and the Schuylkill River Trail. The Schuylkill Trail extends for over 60 miles and the Wissahickon Trail for 20 miles. These greenways run along their respective waterways through natural urban wilderness areas and there are plenty of footbridges, connecting trails, and parkland to explore. Cyclists, dog walkers, joggers, and even horseback riders use sections of these trails, so watch out for two-wheeled traffic and keep your dog on a leash.

Gorgas Park also provides a beautifully developed green space in the Roxborough region and this beautiful park hosts concerts, festivals, and events throughout the year. On non-event days, you can enjoy playing with your dog in the park or walking along one of the paved pathways. When scheduled events are taking place, you and your pup can take in a live performance or enjoy people watching from the sidelines.
