Darby is a bustling little town with all the charms of small-town life, located 13 miles west of Philadelphia, and only 5 miles from the Delaware River. The town has lots of rich history since being incorporated in 1853, and is even home to the fifth-oldest all-volunteer Fire Department and the second oldest library in the United States. Throughout the years, Darby has shown its love for its four-legged residents and has lots of spaces around town that are dog-friendly.

Bartram Park is the largest public space in the city, with over 30 acres of land on both sides of Darby Creek. The area has thick forests, open fields, and a small beach along the creek. The beach is dog-friendly to leashed pups, and even has a spot for fishing and a boat launch. There are nature trails, paved walkways, water fountains, benches, and trash bins available.

Powell Park is on the southern side of the city, lined with tall oak trees with a grassy terrain for multiple uses. The area is pleasant and gets lots of shade from the surrounding trees, which makes it a great place to bring Fido to run around and play. There's a basketball course, a playground, a swimming hole, and fishing pier. Dogs must remain on a leash inside the park, and remember to bring water and clean-up bags!

Darby is fantastic in many ways for pups and humans, thanks to its large parks, a walkable downtown area, and one animal hospital.
