Wag! Walkers know Tacony

Tacony is a neighborhood located in northeast Philadelphia along the Delaware River. Tacony is a historic district with two local schools and the Tacony Music Hall listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There are lots of shops, local eateries, and services in the community. Many are centered in and around Torresdale Avenue and there are also shopping areas along Frankford Avenue on the northern border.聽


Locals with pets that walk their dogs frequently need to be prepared for rainy days which frequently occur in Philadelphia. Cool weather in the winter can turn precipitation to snow, although this is usually short-lived as daytime winter temperatures usually reach above freezing and melt snow cover. Summers are hot and muggy with high humidity that makes long walks uncomfortable on extremely hot days. Dog walkers will need rain gear, warm winter jackets, and cool, breathable clothing to keep comfortable throughout the year.聽

What is the terrain like in Tacony?

This neighborhood is the site of the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge terminus which brings heavy traffic through the area as this is a major crossing point for the river. The terrain in Tacony has some inclines and slopes, although no steep sections for pedestrians and pets to contend with. Homes in the area tend to be duplexes and row houses, many historic, as this area has a substantial history of development.聽


Some roads have sidewalks with grass berms that provide soft, cool footing for puppy paws. Other residential side streets are narrow one ways with no berms. There are bike lanes on many main streets, so watch out for both two and four-wheeled vehicles when crossing area roads. To the south, there are train tracks and the Delaware Expressway as well as some industrial activity bordering the river. This region is not a pedestrian-friendly area and should be avoided when taking your dog out for daily walks.

How many greenways are there in Tacony?

Disston Park is a recreational greenway stretching for several city blocks along the south border of Tacony. 聽The park has ball fields and sports facilities as well as open green areas, trees, and paved pedestrian trails for local dog walkers.聽聽

Vogt Park is located in the north section of Tacony and has a recreational center, sports fields, and facilities including basketball courts and paved trails to access amenities. Alternatively,聽Russo Park is located on the east border of Tacony. This urban park has recreational amenities but also open green lawns and trees with pedestrian paths and more natural areas to play and walk your pup.

There are also several playgrounds in Tacony including the Dorsey Playground, the American Legion Playground, Roosevelt Playground, and Mullin Playground. These green spaces provide sports fields and play structures in the area. Dogs should stay off of playground areas but can enjoy the parks from paved paths or when sports teams are not using the fields.
