Your Guide to the Best Dog Parks in Philadelphia
Let your dog get the zoomies out! Whether your dog is a small, young pup looking to bolt around the yard, or you have an older soul looking to just mosey around and make some new friends, there’s a perfect dog park for every dog and dog owner in the City of Brotherly Love.
Fishtown: Palmer Doggie Spot
37 East Palmer Street
This spot is best for social butterflies. A small dirt-and-cobblestone enclosure, part of a larger green space. There’s not much shade, so come armed with sunscreen and plenty of water for you and your pup.
Fitler Square: Schuylkill River Park Dog Run
25th and Sprice Streets
A boujee pup’s paradise. This sweeping synthetic grass courtyard on the river is equipped with a nice drinking fountain and sections for large and small pups making it by far, Philly’s fanciest dog park.
Manayunk: Pretzel Park
4300 Silverwood Street
This petite dog run is mainly dirt and wood chips, but looking for improvement in the near future. Check out the nearby Manayunk Towpath for a stroll, then dining alfresco at pooch-friendly Winnie’s LeBus, where the staff puts out water bowls.
Northern Liberties: Orianna Hill Dog Park
900 North Orianna Street
An acre-sized members-only park where trees and benches abound. This is a great spot for pups who need room to roam. For access, you’ll need to register online, attend a casual 15-minute orientation, and give Fido a VIP dog tag. Signing up is free, but a $50 annual donation is recommended.
