Wag! Walkers know Squirrel Hill

Squirrel Hill is a neighborhood in West Philadelphia, bordering Cedar Park and University City. Its location in West Philly puts it at the center of a diverse community with surrounding working-class neighborhoods to the west and University of Pennsylvania students to the east. It is a few steps away from the main commercial drag in West Philly, Baltimore Avenue, which is home to hip cafes, bars, eateries, and shops that are frequented and beloved by the local community.

Philly tends to be a little warmer than east coast cities further north, but it's still prone to some chillier winters with snow and sleet possible on the coldest of days. Summers can be relatively pleasant, but shouldn't get as warm as some cities further south. Overall, Philadelphia is an ideal area for those who want moderate temperatures that don't dip into either extreme too far. Be prepared, however, for the occasional snowstorm. 

What is the terrain like in Squirrel Hill?

The terrain in most of the Philadelphia area is mild and flat and this is mostly true for the entire neighborhood of Squirrel Hill as well. You will find very few inclines or hills while on a walk with your dog, and if you do, they will never be drastic enough to cause any problems. The environment is mostly artificial, save for a few small parks around the neighborhood and it maintains the urban, bustling atmosphere of many areas in Philly.

This is a fairly high-traffic area of the city, especially on major commercial thoroughfares such as 47th Street, Springfield Avenue, and Woodland Avenue. These roads, combined with Baltimore Avenue, a major road that lies one block north of the neighborhood, are busy at almost every time of day. If you stick to the more residential parts of the neighborhood on a walk, you can avoid most of the foot and street traffic. 

How many greenways are there in Squirrel Hill?

There are no parks or greenways immediately within the borders of Squirrel Hill, except for a small corner of Kingsessing Park that dips into the western edge of the neighborhood. Kingsessing is a bordering neighborhood of Squirrel Hill along with Cedar Park and University Village, all of which have their own parks that are within a short walking distance of Squirrel Hill.

Clark Park, located just a few blocks west of Squirrel Hill, is one of the largest and most popular parks in the area. Its location right off of Baltimore Avenue makes it a gathering place for the local community where many people bring their children and dogs to enjoy a day out in the sun. 48th and Woodland Playground, located just to the south of Squirrel Hill, is a smaller option, but it still has tons of green space for you and your dog to discover.
