Dog Walking in Brookhaven

Brookhaven is a borough in Delaware County. In the past, it was a rural community relying on farming and dairy production. Today, Brookhaven is a pawsome residential community. Since it is only a half hour outside of Philadelphia, local pups have access to big city amenities. It also has its very own veterinary clinic.

What pup doesn’t love a walk in the park? Good thing Brookhaven has some pawsome parks to keep your pooch happy. Leash up your pup and head over to the Brookhaven Memorial Park. The majority of this park is wooded, so your pal can get his fill of nature. Be sure to stop by the park’s memorial that honors our service men and women. 

Eaton Park is another forested park in the area that your pup will love. This natural space has plenty of new smells for your pup to discover. He can search for the perfect stick while getting in some doggy cardio.

After your walk, stop by Rita’s Italian Ice for a refreshing treat. Try a unique creation like Fudge Brownie Cream Ice, Strawberry Frozen Custard, or Coconut Cream Blendini. The best part about this place is the walk up window. Your pooch can help you decide which frozen delicacy to order. No wonder dogs give Brookhaven two paws up!
