Wag! Walkers know Wharton

Wharton is a  loosely-defined neighborhood of south Philadelphia, centered along Wharton Street. There are retail shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes, and corner stores well distributed throughout the area. Residents of this densely populated central neighborhood are rarely more than a few blocks from services and the neighborhood is known for being highly walkable with plenty of destinations. Doggie Style Pets Passyunk is located in the district and is a unique retail pet store that also offers grooming services. 


Philly can be hot and humid, or cool and rainy. Take your pick! There are plenty of beautiful days for walking in Philadelphia, but pedestrians should be prepared for rain, some snow in winter with cooler temperatures, and hot, muggy summer days. A variety of outerwear to keep you dry will keep dog walkers and their pets comfortable when journeying through the region. Be prepared with some good shoes and the occasional necessary umbrella.

What is the terrain like in Wharton?

This neighborhood has a long history of development and contains many older and historic buildings. Side residential streets in the district are exceptionally narrow and almost universally one way which can make it difficult for visiting vehicles to navigate the area. Pedestrian ways are sandwiched on narrow lanes between homes which are set close to street fronts and roads are lined with parked cars, so be sure to keep your dog securely leashed. Watch out for traffic in this busy area where visitors may be confused by one-way streets and traffic flow is heavy due to the dense population and commercial activity. 


There is little natural landscaping in this urban area, however, shade is provided by the multi-story, densely packed, close-set row houses that cast their shadows over streetscapes. The neighborhood is relatively flat with only slight inclines and is not difficult for pedestrians, as there are no steep climbs to contend with.

How many greenways are there in Wharton?

This highly urban area does not have many large greenways but has plenty of small urban parks, many of which are historic. The Wharton Square playground is located in Point Breeze. This beautiful and unique park has play structures, lots of trees, and green lawns. Take a leisurely stroll through Wharton Square with your pet along the paved paths and watch all the activity in the park.

Columbus Square provides a more open park with ball fields, play structures, paths and benches, and an enclosed dog park. The Columbus Square Dog Park is a small, but attractive fenced dog park with a gravel surface and stumps for your dog to jump and play on. Dogs in the park must be well socialized, older than four months, spayed or neutered, licensed, and accompanied by an owner over the age of 18. Pet owners at Columbus Square are expected to clean up after their furry friends.
