Description
If you're looking for the pawrfect picturesque place to take Fido for a walk, Norris Square is the spot for you! This furrific green space finds its home in the Kensington region of Northern Philadelphia. Open 24 hours a day, this doggone amazing spot is a pawpular location for people and their pooches to log in a few activity miles! Norris Square is comprised of 5.8 acres of property in total, so you and your best canine pal will be sure to meet your activity quota for the day while perusing the grounds at your leisure. Your pupperoni is more than welcome to accompany you on your day of walking fun, but you must keep Fido leashed to stay on the merry side of the Philadelphia pawlice. 


The grounds for Norris Square were donated by the remaining family members of Mr. Isaac Norris, and this  beloved green space appropriately bears his name. The intent was for the property to remain "a public green and walk forever," and park officials have made every effort to ensure the park remains true to its original purpose. In its first inception, Norris Square was one of five parks which followed the same design premise of Mr. William Penn and Mr. Thomas Holmes; lush green lawns in geometric shapes which were lined by walkways, ensuring the pawblic had wooftastic views of this barking beautiful place. In later years, the square was refreshed into eight walking paths which emanate out from a central garden, and it remains true to this layout today. 

Doggoes are more than welcome to join you on your walk through the lush grounds of this pawsitively awesome walkers' paradise. Though walking is the primary attraction at Norris Square, you may also enjoy a picnic lunch on the grounds or some play time with your pooch should the mood strike you both. Be sure to bring your own water and clean up bags, and pick up after your pooch.

Could Fido benefit from a woofderfully long walk? Why not bring him for a stroll at Norris Square? You'll be doggone glad you did!
