Wag! Walkers know South Philadelphia

South Philadelphia is a region of, you guessed it, South Philadelphia. There are residential, commercial, and industrial activities present in the region and these areas are highly walkable. Many nightclubs, restaurants, bars, and other entertainment venues lie along South Street. Famous local eateries, delis and open markets , and a street festival are located throughout the area as well as multiple cafes and coffee houses. Schools, churches, libraries, a museum, and recreational facilities and fields, including a stadium, are also located in South Philly.聽For pet owners, there are several unique pet stores in the region.聽


Most residents can walk to commercial services easily, but pedestrians should remember to take rain gear as rain occurs frequently. In summer, hot, humid weather can make walking uncomfortable. Don't forget to check that your pet isn't becoming overheated when it is very hot outside. Make sure your canine companion has lots of water and is not overexposed to direct sun or overexerted.

What is the terrain like in South Philadelphia?

South Philadelphia is bordered by South Street on the north, the Schuylkill River on the west, and the Delaware River on the east and south. The northern sections of South Philadelphia are mostly residential with row houses on narrow residential lots. The residential areas do not have a lot of landscaping and streets in the area are narrow and often one-way. A golf course is also located in the southwest corner of the district.聽


The southern section of South Philadelphia contains more commercial and industrial activity including a naval shipyard and large sports facilities including a stadium. These areas are not as pedestrian-friendly. There are also railyards on the southside and an interstate which pedestrians should avoid when walking with their dogs. Many local streets have bike lanes and pedestrians crossing busy roads need to keep an eye out for cyclists as well as vehicles. The area is flat and pedestrians do not need to climb steep hills.

How many greenways are there in South Philadelphia?

There are several parks in the South Philadelphia region. Marconi Plaza is an urban square plaza divided into two halves by Broad Street. The park features paved pedestrian paths, raised terraces, and sculptures. The borders of the park are lined with 30-50 foot maple trees and there are lots of trees throughout as well as benches and reflecting pools. There are even some recreational sports facilities here.

FDR Park is also located in South Philly along the Delaware River. This 384-acre park has a 146-acre golf course and about 77 acres of natural park land including ponds and a lagoon. Plenty of local wildlife including wildfowl make this area their home, so it is important to keep your dog leashed in the park and avoid disturbing local wildlife. Other activities in the park include a skate park, tennis courts, soccer fields, a model boathouse, playgrounds, baseball fields, and fishing.
