Wag! Walkers know West Parkside

West Parkside has undergone a massive renovation effort that has restored much of it to its former glory. The community was home to the 1876 Centennial Celebration hosted in Fairmont Park. Today, the neighborhood is comprised mostly of large businesses and the ParkWest Town. There are small residential areas of single-family houses, many of which have helped the city become listed on the National Historic Register. Although there might not be many places to walk your pup in the housing areas, on the other side of Parkside Ave. lies Fairmont Park with acres of grass and plenty of trails for the two of you to enjoy. 

Like the rest of the Greater Philly area, the summers here are glorious with temperatures in the 80s to 90s and moderate humidity levels. You and your pup can enjoy plenty of lovely long walks together. Winters, on the other hand, can be unmerciful with temperatures below freezing for weeks at a time. 

What is the terrain like in West Parkside?

The terrain in West Parkside is mostly artificial due to the shopping centers and large businesses, but the small housing areas feature tree-lined streets and there are a couple of large undeveloped areas you can walk around in. If you prefer to stay closer to home, the streets are lined with sidewalks but have no green areas for your pup. If you want grass, you will have to rely on your backyard or go across the street to Fairmount Park or go the other end of the community on W. Jefferson St. where there are two large undeveloped areas for the two of you to romp around on. 

One problem you should be aware of during the summer months is the temperature outside and the pavement. When the temperature outside is a bright sunny 75°F, the pavement can reach temperatures hot enough to burn your pup's paws! Plan your walks for earlier before the sidewalks heat up.

How many greenways are there in West Parkside?

For the West Parkside area, describing greenways can be both easy and challenging at the same time. There are a couple of large undeveloped spots in the southeast corner of the community which many people use to walk their dogs. The biggest greenway by far is Fairmont Park on the other side of Parkside Ave. The park was established in 1876 for the country's Centennial Exposition and saw over 10 million visitors on that day. Fairmont Park covers 2000 acres that include wandering trails, rolling hills, shady woodlands, a relaxing waterfront, and is the perfect, quiet getaway from the noise of the bustling city all around you. Along with miles of trails, the park also features historic mansions, outdoor concerts, a Victorian-style trolley to take you on a tour of the Colonial-era mansions, and acres of grasslands for you and your pup to enjoy.
