A small borough in New Jersey, Merchantville is a pleasant and low-key place to have a little doggy adventure. The town is peaceful, with friendly locals, and it just so happens to be conveniently located just across the bridge from Philadelphia. Whether you’re looking for something a bit more relaxing, or you’re eager to explore the hustle and bustle of a much larger city, Merchantville is in the perfect location for either of these sorts of day trips. 

No worries if you’re not looking to travel, though -- settled right in the middle of the borough is Merchantville Bike Path. One of the many rail trails supported by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, this bike path is open to all sorts of travelers. Leash up Fido and prepare for a nice brisk day, walking along the beautiful and well-maintained trail. All you’ll need to bring is plenty of water for the two of you, some doggy waste bags, and maybe a few treats to reward your pup’s doggone good behavior. Who knows? Maybe your pup will make some new pals they’re willing to share their yum-yums with! 

Regardless of what you choose to do, Merchantville is, without a doubt, a must-see doggy destination!

    #5 Kingsessing

    If you’ve already crossed state lines, you may as well enjoy more time in the Philadelphia area. After all, there so much to see, and it’s only a short distance from Merchantville, after all. Kingsessing, a small neighborhood in the midst of the chaos, is where you’ll find Chester Avenue Dog Park. A well-maintained and beautiful park, this fenced-in area is large enough for your pup to stretch its paws, and also contains beautiful shade trees for you to relax beneath. While this park is membership based, the beauty and pristine nature of this area make it well worth the price.
