Pennypack Park is a gorgeous strip of land in Philadelphia that follows the winding path of the Pennypack creek through a section of the densely inhabited neighborhoods that surround it. Neighborhoods around the park are pre-planned and closely spaced. While houses are well set back from the road and sidewalks are present in most areas, walking into the park is a natural relief. 

A wide variety of wildlife, both seasonal and permanent, call the park home. The Pennypack trail runs along the creek, offering you the best possible chance to see fascinating wildlife. Your dog will rejoice in the opportunity to smell the animal smells along the creek and test her paws on natural terrain. 

Paths exist around the perimeter of the park a well, in case you would like to try a different route than the creek.

The heavily forested park is mostly flat, but drops downhill at the creek. The natural topography, including obstacles like downed trees, rocks, and dense shrubbery, all offer your dog a chance to think more and move differently than on a standard walk. Intermittent grassy areas allow room for your dog to run freely, while mature trees cover most of the park and offer shade and beauty. 

There are no fences or barriers between the park and the roads that cut through it, so be careful to always keep your dog firmly on leash, despite how tempting it may be to let her run free in the forested areas. 

Some areas of the creek offer beaches where sand has accumulated over time on the bends. Many dogs love sniffing and walking along these spots, but be careful to keep your dog from drinking the water.

All of this park is greenway. The mature forest offers a welcome natural relief from the tightly packed neighborhood surrounding. Pennypack Ccreek and the surrounding forest hosts a variety of wild animals, from deer to migrating birds. Enjoy hiking along the creek, and if you are lucky enough to be walking in one of the surrounding neighborhoods, make a point to visit the park. 

A natural setting offers glimpses of wildlife and natural beauty that revitalize people and dogs alike. There is something about water rushing through a forest that seems to make the problems of civilized life seem smaller. Your dog may remember how good it is to sniff and explore. Be careful to keep control of your dog, but let her explore Pennypack park. Your dog will thank you for it.
