King of Prussia is a small town with lots of rich history, only 20 miles from Philadelphia. The town was named after the King of Prussia Inn, which was created in 1719, and was here long before the town was established. Nowadays, the city is home to the largest mall in America, and is located at the convergence of four major highways, making it a popular place for people and dogs alike.
This town accommodates its four-legged residents by creating dog-friendly parks, like the Valley Forge National Historical Park. The park was once a revolutionary war site, but has now become a place for tours, outdoor activities, and recreational events. There are over 3600 acres of land, with 26 miles of walkings trails, with open fields, picnic areas, ball fields, guided tours, and access to the Schuylkill River for fishing and boating. Dogs are welcome in the park while they are on a leash, and have access to water fountains, clean-up stations, benches, and nighttime lights.
The Upper Merion Boat House Park is another gorgeous park that's great to walk with Fido. The park is home to a small boat port, public boat launch, forested trail, open area, and greenway that leads out of the park. The greenway doesn't have a name, but extends over 1.5 miles along the river, with access to benches along the way. Dogs are welcome in the park and on the trail, but you'll need to bring water and clean-up bags.
There are five veterinarians in the city, and a number of other options for you and Fido to enjoy on your walk outside in King of Prussia, making this town a sure hit!
