3 Favorite Neighborhood Dog Parks in Philadelphia
Your pets are part of your family and just like you, they want to live in a spot where they can stay active and socialize. Luckily, there are a variety of dog parks in Philadelphia where your four-legged friend can run, jump, and sniff to their heart’s content! City living doesn’t equate to a lack of space to stretch your paws.
Dog Parks You’ll Love to Visit
While Philadelphia residents are still committed to practicing social distancing during the current pandemic, you do have the freedom to enjoy the sunshine and head out to your nearby canine community spot.
1. Palmer Doggie Depot
Palmer Doggie Depot, located at 37 E Palmer Street in Fishtown, offers a community-run dog park situated along the Big Green Block just south of Shissler Recreation Center. This fenced dog park welcomes pets older than four months with all their updated vaccinations. The area is comprised of cobblestone, mulch, and dirt and features rustic wooden benches for owners. Palmer Doggie Depot is free and open to the community!
2. Market Street Dog Run
Situated along the river in Old City, you’ll find Market Street Dog Run. This pet park opened in 2014 and offers a narrow, half-block long gravel run with separated sections for smaller or larger dog breeds. While it doesn’t offer quite as much space as other spots in the city, it does offer unmatched views. While Fido runs out all his energy, you can sit on a bench and take in the charming views of the Ben Franklin Bridge or boats passing by on the river. It’s a win-win for both pet and pet parent!
3. Segar Dog Park
Touted as the place “where Philly dogs go to play” on their website, Seger Dog Park is a beautiful spot to bring your pup! Located at 1001 Rodman Street just off South Street, this public park offers a space where owners and pets alike can meet new friends. The park features a paved path as well as large areas of mulch so your four-legged family member will have lots of space to explore. While the park is open to the public, you can also opt to become a member to support maintenance as the city does not provide any funding. The park is open 24/7 and often hosts events.
