This small community sits less than twenty miles from Philadelphia. It offers a refuge from big-city living while being conveniently located for any kind of service or activity a person with a dog could want or need. A couple of the veterinary clinics in town keep you home for most of your dog's routine and emergency needs.
The borough maintains a good-sized park, Lindenwold Park. This large green space includes a sports complex with ballfields, picnic spots, and a playground. A paved walking track will give you and pup a good stretch together. In addition, the park has a walking path made of dirt and rock. This path will take you and your leashed companion along some scenic flats and forests. This nature path does climb a few hills, so wear good shoes and bring along some water for your pal. At the highest elevation, the skyline of Philadelphia will be visible on a clear day.
For another walk, it is less than three miles north to Gibbsboro. Gibbsboro has begun its ambitious project of developing a trail network. Locals all know about the beautiful park, Blueberry Hill. Here, you and your pup will find a spectacular and a moderate hike to experience. The trail takes a hiker through some dense forest. The main trail is well-marked and many unmarked trails branch off of it. Although it is a popular place, you and your pup will not feel crowded in this piece of nature. At the summit, a view of Philadelphia's skyline reminds you and your pup that you can have big-city convenience without sacrificing small-town, community living.
