Philadelphia Parks for Your Pooch

Apartment life can feel a bit confining at times – especially if you’re a dog! If you’re looking for the best dog parks to visit with your furry friend, look no further. We’ve done all the hard work, and found the very best Philly parks to enjoy with your pooch.

Schuylkill River Dog Park
Located just a short walk from apartments in Fitler Square, Rittenhouse Square, and the Graduate Hospital Neighborhood, this off-leash park is located along the banks of the Schuylkill River. The Schuylkill River Dog Park even features separate fenced-in areas for large and small dogs. There are also biodegradable poop bags for the eco-conscious!

Triangle Dog Park
Situated right in Fishtown, the Triangle Dog Park is fully fenced in, making it a great place for an off-leash game of fetch! Fishtown is a popular neighborhood for renters looking for affordable Philadelphia apartments, and the Triangle Dog Park helps make Fishtown a great neighborhood for Philadelphia dogs, too.

Pretzel Dog Run at Manayunk Park
Revitalized beginning in the late 1990s by the Manayunk Neighborhood Council, the Pretzel Dog Run is a wonderful place for dogs living in Manayunk apartments to get some exercise.

Clark Park
Clark Park in West Philadelphia hosts the summer Shakespeare in the Park event, along with a Saturday farmers' market. Clark Park also welcomes pets, if leashed, making it a great destination for University City dogs.

Seger Dog Park
Dogs sharing apartments in Philly's Washington Square West neighborhood can enjoy off-leash fun and play at the Seger Dog Park. Located slightly southeast of Center City, Seger Dog Park features separate enclosed areas for large and small dogs.

Philadelphia is a dog-friendly city. Next time your pet begs to get out of the apartment for some outdoor fun, head to one of these terrific dog-friendly locales, and enjoy an afternoon of fetch and tail-chasing.
