It is time to take Fido for a walk, and what better place to go in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, than Fisher Park. This lovely park will take your breath away by its beautiful landscaped grounds, and will offer your pawtastic pup a great time outdoors without ever having to leave the city.
You will find plenty of parking in the adjacent lot or on the side streets which encircle the park. Or you can also find a parking garage nearby and stay for the entire day. Grab some bottled water and your pup’s leash and you are ready for an adventure.
There are 23 acres of outdoor space just waiting for you both to enjoy. Take a walk on the luscious green grass that is so prevalent here and let Fido run on leash to kick up his heels and burn off some of that pent-up energy. Take one of the hiking trails for a fun time with your furry friend which will meander you throughout the park’s entire grounds, up and down hills, and through the woods. The trails all offer a natural footing, which is easy on the paws and are well-suited for any pup fitness level. For a bit of relaxation after, you can sit on one of the many provided benches that are scattered throughout the park under the shade of the mature trees.
Other amenities of Fisher Park include tennis and basketball courts and a playground for the area’s youngsters. Be sure to check out the meditation garden where you can go to spend some quiet time, and community vegetable garden where local residents grow some wonderful food for their tables. Restrooms and drinking fountains are provided on-site, so all you will need to bring is your pup and some clean up mitts to keep this park pristine.
Head out to Fisher Park any time of the year and enjoy spending time in the fresh air with your puptastic pup by your side.
