The Kent Dog Park offers a fenced-in area for well-behaved dogs to get fresh air, exercise and playtime with other dogs. Members of the dog park may let their canine pals romp unleashed in the fenced-in facility, which contains a covered pavilion, benches, water, and, of course, dog-litter bags.
The Dog Park is divided into two fenced-in areas: one for dogs 25 pounds and larger, and one for smaller dogs. Both enclosures are double-gated to prevent dogs from getting loose, and an electronic key fob is required for entrance. Hours are dawn to dusk daily.
The Dog Park is operated by The Delaware County Department of Parks and Recreation and Upper Darby Township. Park users are required to register for membership, and to abide by the rules and regulations designed to keep the park safe and well-maintained.
Registration: Use of the Dog Park is for Delaware County residents only, and registration requires a current dog license and rabies vaccination. Annual membership is $20 per household;$10 for senior citizens. Renewal is $10 for residents, and $5 for seniors.
So glad I found this hidden jewel! Yes, dogs need to be licensed and there is a $20 yearly fee, but I think that extra time and $ brings people who are really devoted to their dogs. Kent park is a community and the people are as nice as their 4 legged friends!
