Our Favorite Dog Parks

Blue and I love our morning walks and time in the local parks around Fishtown. After all, just like I need to get out and take in some nature or even just grab a beer, Blue likes an outdoor adventure, too. And here in the Philadelphia area, luckily, we have quite a few options. From dog parks and hiking trails to more off beat options, there’s no shortage of places to take our pups for a nice day out — whether you’re feeling rugged and outdoorsy, or more metropolitan. 

So, where can you take your dog for a good time without traveling too far? Here are a few good options in the city, the burbs, and New Jersey that Blue and I frequent:
