Wag! Walkers know Wissahickon

Wissahickon is a historic northwest Philadelphia neighborhood situated next to the sprawling Wissahickon Valley Park. Founded in the late 1800s, there is much to discover in the neighborhood, including the famed 100 Steps. Made mostly of granite and iron, these stairs offer easy access from the residential area to Wissahickon Valley Park's many trails. The residential area itself is small, but you'll still find a few businesses along the major roadways, including several restaurants and an ice cream shop.聽

You and your pup will love exploring Wissahickon. Starting in the neighborhood, you'll find old homes and shady streets. There's also easy access to Wissahickon Valley Park where you can spend days exploring all that the park has to offer. Check the weather before you head out, though. Philadelphia's weather changes drastically, especially in the summer and winter months, and you wouldn't want to be caught in a snow or rain storm!

What is the terrain like in Wissahickon?

If you're planning a walk in Wissahickon, make sure to wear your walking shoes and water, especially if you want to check out the park. There are a few hills in the residential area ranging in steepness and the park trails are narrow dirt paths. This is definitely the place to go if your dog is active and loves exploring new places.聽

You can easily stay in the residential area of Wissahickon and enjoy a great walk. There are many large, old homes to admire and lots of shady spots to rest along the way. Be cautious along certain roads, however. Some, mostly near Wissahickon Valley Park, don't have sidewalks and, while the roads aren't busy, always be on the lookout. Other roads have narrow sidewalks including Ridge Avenue. If you're walking there, keep your pet on a tight leash so they don't go on the road.聽

How many greenways are there in Wissahickon?

Wissahickon is renowned for its easy access to Wissahickon Valley Park, a nearly 2,000-acre piece of land that surrounds Wissahickon Creek. The park is very dog-friendly and welcomes pets of all sizes as long as they're on a leash. The park features about 57 miles of trails that lead you through lush natural foliage and bring you to scenic spots overlooking the creek. Philadelphians love Wissahickon Valley Park because it offers an escape from the busy city. Since the park is so large, bring a map and try to familiarize yourself with the trails before you go. Watch out for horses! Some of the trails allow equestrian access as well.

If you're not up to a walk in Wissahickon Valley Park, La Noce Park is a small greenway on the other side of the neighborhood that offers lots of shade and a courtyard area with benches for a rest.
