When you walk down the streets of Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, you're exploring a city that is over 300 years old -- older than our nation itself! The historic Richard Wall house, which is still standing, was built in 1682, and has been expanded throughout the years. Known simply as "Wall House", it's now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and was passed down through the Wall family for over 150 years. You can see it when you and your dog take the walking tour around the city.

There are many unique historic sites in Elkins Park that you won't want to miss, and there's also plenty for your pup to do, too. Grab a leash and go for a walk at Tacony Creek Park. This is a quiet little park that goes through the greenbelt. Your pup will love making a splash in the stream along the path. The way that the trees hang over the stream and path will make you feel like you are in an enchanted forest. It is so peaceful that you'll forget you are in the middle of the city, which makes it the pawfect place to share a quiet moment with your furry friend.

Alverthorpe Park is another great green spot that is dog-friendly. There is a no-dog zone here, but it is on the other side of the fence. The entire area is lined with a paved walking trail designed for you to walk your dog, ride bikes, or just take a stroll. There are benches along the track and trash cans as well.

Elkins Park is the pawfect destination for nature lovers and history buffs alike!
