Schuylkill River Dog Park Philadelphia – A place to play

Relaxing

"Schuylkill River Dog Park" is an amazing dog park in Philadelphia. It's a great place to watch the dogs run & play. It always brings a smile to my face.

They say dogs are man's best friend and I would have to agree. I have always been a dog lover but ever since I moved to Philadelphia I have not been able to have one. That does not mean I am not able to enjoy other people's dogs, right. Luckily Philadelphia has an amazing dog park that anyone can use. It is a great place to just relax and watch the dogs run and play. It always brings a smile to my face and relaxes me.  

There are two dog areas, one for larger dogs and one for smaller dogs. Dogs aren't the only ones there to have fun. Enter the dog park and grab a ball and I know you will find at least one dog that will want to play with you. The owners of the dogs are really great in sharing their best friends with everyone. The best part is if the dog makes a mess, you can walk away.
