In the heart of Philadelphia, you can find a piece of wilderness that will help you and your pupper forget the hustle and bustle of city life. In the neighborhood of Manayunk, you can find the hidden gem of Germany Hill. This 20 acre plot of undeveloped land will allow your pooch to feel like a wild dog as they scamper along the trails through the woods.
This property is undeveloped and has no amenities, but what you can find here is dense forests, rolling hills, and nature paths. The property is located adjacent to the Hillside Recreation Center, where you can use the facilities if necessary. Limited Parking can be found on Smick Street, where you will also be able to locate a trailhead at the dead end. Locals and their dogs love coming to this park on their morning walks with Fido, for some trail running, or simply to commune with nature. There is a variety of wildlife here too so keep your eyes peeled!
There has been talk of developers building a new neighborhood on the property, but this has ignited some controversy, and residents have opposed the proposition. As it stands, Germany Hill is still a well-loved piece of nature that the Manayunk neighborhood is proud to call its own.
On your journeys in Germany Hill, you may be able to encounter some new furry pals, and maybe even some wildlife! Please ensure that your doggo does not disturb the wild animals and always plays well with others. Your pupper also needs to stay leashed, and be picked up after, so don’t forget the doggy waste bags! By doing this Germany Hill can remain a clean and safe haven for everybody and fur-buddy! Also be sure to bring water too!
At Germany Hill, you can get lost in the woods with your canine companion, without even having to leave the city.
