You should make some time in your busy schedule to take your furry friend out for a walk. The city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, offers Malcolm X Park which is the perfect place to grab a few minutes of fresh air or to spend the entire day.
Finding the park is easy. Located in the West Philadelphia neighborhood, Malcolm X park has plenty of parking street side or in its parking lot. There are also garages where you can grab a place for your car.
This park offers residents and visitors six lovely acres for you to enjoy with your pawtastic pup in tow. Take them for a walk on the manicured grounds which offer lots of green grass for Fido to roll in and plenty of walking paths to stroll on. Each walkway is paved which makes it easy for elderly pups to get around. Boasting dozens of park benches, there are plenty of places to sit and relax while you take in the scenery here. Your pup can snooze in the sun while you read a book under the shade of the over 100 mature trees which dot the landscape.
The paved paths will lead you around to the park’s other amenities, which include two playgrounds updated and ready for children to climb on. Picnic tables are also plentiful and make for a great place to share a lunch with your puptastic friend. Restrooms are on site, as well as seasonally-operated drinking fountains. All you really need to bring is your pup’s leash and some clean up mitts to keep this park always welcoming to dogs.
Malcolm X Park is just what your pup needs to brighten his day and provide you both with a bit of exercise in your otherwise eventful day!
