Wag! Walkers know Schuylkill

Situated in the neighborhood known both as Southwest Center City and Graduate Hospital, the Schuylkill neighborhood is a small South Philadelphia neighborhood aptly named for its western border, the Schuylkill River. Once named the Devil’s Pocket, the neighborhood’s prime location gives visitors access to the riverside as well as the bustling neighborhood of Southwest Center City. Schuylkill is a pretty, well-maintained area with a variety of residential buildings, restaurants and shops, and public and private industry buildings.

If you want to take your furry friend shopping, you’ll have to head north a few blocks outside of the neighborhood. Along South Street, you’ll find an Unleashed outlet. South Street features many shopping and dining options with outdoor seating as well. If you run into a pet emergency, PAWS Wellness Clinic is all the way south along Grays Ferry Avenue, close to the Grays Ferry Shopping Center.

What is the terrain like in Schuylkill?

Schuylkill offers a perfect area for a short, easy walk down city streets. You can add the neighborhood to a long walk around several neighborhoods or stick around Schuylkill to explore or stop and admire the scenic river views. The neighborhood is also home to the Roberts Center for Pediatric Research and several industrial companies. You’ll find the southern part of the community is mostly an industrial area with little to do. 

While there are sidewalks, there are a lot of large trucks moving around and much happening that isn’t ideal for a leisurely walk with your pup. Try to stick to the central and northern parts of Schuylkill for the ideal trip. Some of Schuylkill’s streets are very narrow, so be sure to keep your dog on a tight leash and take care when crossing the road. Keeping that in mind, there is still much to admire in the area.

How many greenways are there in Schuylkill?

Schuylkill's prime riverside location gives visitors easy access to many parks along the Schuylkill River. Right from the neighborhood, you can walk by the river on a paved pathway. Walking north, you'll come along the Schuylkill River Boardwalks which take you on top of the river for some breathtaking views of downtown Philadelphia. From there, you can head to Schuylkill River Park where you'll find athletic fields, paths winding through shady trees, and best of all, a dog run where you can set Fido free to run around. There's also a community garden where you're tempted to really stop and smell the roses. 

If you're up for the adventure, cross the river at the South Street bridge and head to the University City area where you'll find sprawling lawns of lush grass. The closest is Penn Park, a greenway with places to rest, athletic fields and facilities, and great city views.
