Kent Park: Lucky dog days of Winter

See also

Kent Dog Park, in Upper Darby, provides safe unleashed delight, even in winter, for those lucky dogs whose owners are members. A stretch of land that runs along the Darby Creek under the landmark Lindbergh Bridge, Kent Park offers a fenced-in dog park segregated for the under and over 25 pound canine categories. Members may let their dogs run and play in the fenced-in section which includes a covered pavilion and benches for the humans.

Membership offered to Delaware County residents

Operated and maintained as part of the Delaware County park system, Kent Park includes 10 acres of scenic land along Darby Creek. The dog park’s two fenced in sections feature double-gated enclosures and an electronic key tab for entrance. Dog owners, and their registered, well-behaved canines, may enter from dawn to dusk. Membership registration is available to Delaware County residents only, and does require current dog license and rabies vaccination to complete the membership. Lucky dogs of members are gained access to real exercise and playtime with pals their size, as well as, with a fence between their larger or smaller counterparts. During warmer days, the children’s playground is also available, as well as, the full area of the park’s creek-side setting.

Situated under the historic Lindbergh Bridge, Kent Park is private and scenic. Even in winter, the fresh air may be just the treat for dog owners equal to that of their wagging friends. Registration for the park is accepted in Media and Upper Darby, but if the decision rests with your dog, the unleashed opportunity to romp likely requires very little persuasion.
