Penn Treaty Park is a real treat for locals and four-legged friends of the Fishtown neighborhood in Philadelphia. Legend has it that William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, signed a peace treaty with the the local Lenape Tribe under an elm tree in this park. Scenically located along the Delaware River, you’ll be able to enjoy great views of the water and the Ben Franklin Bridge from this park on your morning walk with Fido. Within the 7 acres, there us plenty to do for the whole family, including your fur baby.
The lovely paved pathways that wind through this park are too good to pass up if you’re looking to enjoy some invigorating exercise with your pupper. They pass underneath tall shade trees, alongside the river, and open grassy areas. These open spaces are great for a picnic with your best pal, or just to sniff and play. If you’d prefer to kick back and enjoy some quiet contemplation in nature, the benches in this park are great just for that.
A woofderful place to meet the neighbors and enjoy a sense of community, this park also hosts annual events throughout the year. These include outdoors concerts, movies, and markets.
The Penn Treaty Park is pawpular among the people and puppers, and the small parking lot within the park fills up quickly. Not to worry though, there is now more parking available across the street! There are also porta-potties available here. Some other features to be found include picnic tables and new playground equipment.
Doggos are welcome in this park of course, but there are some ground rules. Pups must stay leashed and picked up after at all times, so be sure to bring clean up bags. Also be sure to bring water as well.
For some playtime or relaxation right by the river, Penn Treaty Park is a puppy-pleaser every time!
