Wag! Walkers know Wister

Wister is one of the oldest sections of Philadelphia with many of the historic homes dating back to the 19th Century. This is a very close-knit community that works together to keep everywhere looking "clean and green." Homes range from expensive single-family homes to multi-family apartment complexes. There are a number of businesses at the west end of the community. For those who like to dine out, there are a number of excellent restaurants for you and your family to enjoy. 

Living in Philly means learning to enjoy all four seasons. While there are 207 sunny days here, winters feature long weeks of sub-zero temperatures and an average of 15 inches of snow. It also tends to rain a lot here with an average of 47 inches of wet stuff coming down. Spring and summer, however, will soon make you forget the cold with temperatures in the upper 80s and lots of cloudless days. 

What is the terrain like in Wister?

The terrain in Wister is essentially flat with the exception of Wister Wood where the ground rises a little. Beyond that, the type of terrain you have to walk on and live with depends on where you are in the neighborhood. Those who live closer to Wister Wood tend to have nicer streets lined with trees to walk along. Those who live in the south or west are in a less well-kept part of town where the sidewalks tend to have cars parked on them and are not in very good condition. 

No matter which end of town you live in, the sidewalks behave in the same manner. In the winter they can be so cold that puppy paws can freeze to them while the cold itself can lead to the development of arthritis. In the summer months, the sidewalks can reach temperatures hot enough to cause discomfort and burns. Adjust your walks for the seasons appropriately.

How many greenways are there in Wister?

There are two green spaces in the community of Wister. The first is the Wister Playground where there are tennis courts, a great playground for the kids to play on, and a large field for you and your pup to run around on. This park has a reputation for being a nice, safe place to hang out with your family and your pup.

The other is Wister Wood and the Wister Woods Park. A large area of trees, trails, and grass for you, your family, and, of course, your pup to walk on awaits you at this great green space. The woods wrap around the Independence Blue Cross Fitness Center to Wakefield Park, offering quite a bit of room to explore. With this amount of green space to enjoy, you and your energetic pooch should be able to enjoy lots of time together running around and getting that much-needed exercise.
