In conjunction with the Pedestrian Connector Bridge Project and our partnership with the Department of Parks and Recreation, the enclosed dog run area was significantly improved in 2012, replacing the dog run surface with new K9 grass, and completing many additional amenities.Please consider becoming a member of the FSRP to help us support ongoing maintenance that ensures the smooth operation of our park. As just one small example, we try to provide bio-degradable dog waste bags but can only do this with your contributions.

Since 1997, the Schuylkill River Park Dog Run has offered thousands of dogs and their owners a shaded, welcome respite from the urban grind – a place for owners to relax, chat, and bond over their adorable canine companions. Every year the Friends of the Schuylkill River Park (FSRP) makes improvements to the run. Over the years we have listened to users and added a water fountain, improved dog run surfaces, replaced park benches, cared for and added trees, and worked to ensure that the park is a safe and welcoming place for all users.

Please remember that the dog run is the only area in Schuylkill River Park where dogs are permitted to be off-leash.

This website also offers important information regarding other rules and regulations of the dog park, including dog vaccination and licensing, in addition to the latest news about the park. Feel free to explore our site and share your feedback.
