As the weather starts to get warmer, get your canine out of the house with a trip to one of these dog parks around the Main Line.

Whether it’s for exercise, socialization or just a breath of fresh air, these Main Line dog parks provide a great opportunity to get your pup off leash in the great outdoors.

Note: Every park has its own rules and regulations regarding collars, tags and behavioral expectations. Verify expectations and potential COVID-19 updates on the websites before visiting. Additionally, many parks aim to offer doggy waste bags and water spigots, but these amenities are not always available. Pack and plan accordingly.

Harford Park

Unlike many parks, Harford Park is a natural space with tons of grass, forest, hills and even a small creek for dogs to explore. The spacious park allows energetic dogs to roam freely while leaving space for other dogs to relax by themselves. Please note that Harford Park is not fenced in, which may not be an ideal choice for some dogs. Keep an eye out for posted signs in dog-prohibitive areas.
