Wag! Walkers know Upper Kensington

Upper Kensington is a working-class neighborhood of single-family houses with plenty of mom-and-pop-style corner stores for you to shop in. While the area is up and coming with tremendous efforts being made to change the outlook here, the crime rate is still something to be noted. One thing the younger adults in the area will enjoy is the healthy nightlife including a number of very cool bars and restaurants worth taking a look at. However, you should still consider making sure you have a friend to go聽with.聽Depending on where you live, there are dog-friendly parks and pet supply stores in driving distance.聽

The weather here offers four full seasons starting with January lows in the 20s and highs in July and August in the upper 80s. While it does rain frequently during the spring and summer months, you won't find too many days when you can't take your dog out for a stroll.聽

What is the terrain like in Upper Kensington?

The bulk of the terrain in Upper Kensington is flat and paved, much like many other inner-city areas of Philadelphia. Walking your dog can be a bit on the challenging side but as long as you are willing to be creative, you can always find new ways to make your walks more enjoyable. For instance, you can always take different routes, pick alternating blocks, run straight lines, be like a football player and run patterns, and anything else you can think of to make the walks more interesting and exciting for the two of you.聽

Of course, you should ensure that the routes you take are in the safer areas of the neighborhood in order to keep you and your pet as comfortable and safe as possible. There are a few small dog-friendly parks in the neighborhood worth taking a look at if you want to find a little grass to play with your pup on.

How many greenways are there in Upper Kensington?

Upper Kensington is a vast concrete wasteland with very little in the way of greenways. The majority of homes here are back to back row houses with alleyways between them. This may not sound promising, but there are a few small parks such as McKinley Playground, McPherson Square, and Hissey Playground where you can find at least a little green grass for you to run around on and get a little extra exercise.聽

If you don't mind going for a bit of a drive, you can take your pooch up to Tacony Creek Park. Here, you can enjoy long walks on a nature trail that meanders through the woods as well as along Tacony Creek. This is a friendly, quiet park where you can come to get away from it all. According to the Green City plan, Tacony Creek should be clean enough for fish to live in and to swim in for the next 20 years.聽
