A cozy little town nestled in the heart of Pennsylvania, Newtown Square is a peaceful reprieve that manages to be just close enough to Philadelphia to make a doggy day trip perfectly doable. However, all the excitement doesn’t have to be found outside the bounds of Newtown Square proper! With two dog-friendly restaurants to choose from, as well as a beautiful state park to spend the day hiking through, you and your pup certainly won’t be left wanting for activities.
As a matter of fact, Ridley Creek State Park, centered in Newtown Square, is a location you just can’t miss -- a definite spot on your doggy to-do list. Dogs are welcome in designated areas, and although your pup will need to remain leashed, that’s not going to limit your pup’s sense of adventure. Make your way across the numerous trails available to you, and enjoy the sights and smells of the fresh Pennsylvania wildlife. You’ll need to bring clean drinking water for both you and your pup, as well as doggy waste bags to keep this park nice and clean. Maybe even bring some treats, both for you and Fido, and you all can have a regular puppy picnic!
