Wag! Walkers know Southwest Schuylkill

Southwest Schuylkill is a small section of Kingsessing filled with row houses, narrow streets, and apartment buildings. While the community once had a reputation for high crime, large strides have been made in bringing it under control. There are a number of mom and pop businesses in the community, but if you want pet supply stores, plan on driving out of the neighborhood and heading north into Squirrel Hill.聽

For those who like the warm weather, spring and summer here are wonderful with gentle rains and endless sunny days. Of course, if cooler days are more your thing, then fall might be just what you need. The days are sunny with cool, crisp evenings that are perfect for sitting out on the porch. Winters, on the other hand, can be a bit rough with weeks in which the thermometer never goes above freezing. There is plenty of snow most winters with up to 15 inches of it every year.聽

What is the terrain like in Southwest Schuylkill?

With row houses comes pavement and miles of narrow sidewalks with very little in the way of grass to walk on. Not only are most places heavily paved, but at the same time, the ground here is relatively flat. So far, we have flat pavement to walk along and blocks of almost identical row houses. How on earth do you make going for walks with your pup any fun at all?聽

The trick when you live in an urban housing area like this is variety. To you, the blocks around you may all look just about the same, but your pooch sees things from a different point of view. By changing the directions in which you walk in and the blocks you go around, you give your pup more variety, making the walks more enjoyable. For a change of pace, you can easily head over to Bartram's Garden where there are plenty of trails to explore.聽

How many greenways are there in Southwest Schuylkill?

Southwest Schuylkill has very little in the way of green to work with. There are a few vacant lots around the community that many dog owners use to let their pups run around on. Beyond this, there are dog-friendly parks available聽

The Kingsessing Rec Center can be found on Kingsessing Ave. This park offers a public pool, basketball courts, and plenty of grass for the two of you to run around on and get in a little exercise. At 48th & Woodland, the playground offers a pair of baseball fields, lots of parking, and even more grass to run around on. A

long the riverbank is Bartram's Gardens, a National Historic Landmark park covering 45 acres. Walk along the trails as they wind through perfumed flower gardens, the upper kitchen gardens, and along the river through delightful meadows. You can also reach the park via boat as the park offers free docking, a very popular feature for boaters in the area.聽
