Palmer Doggie Depot Palmer Doggie Depot (PDD) is a dog park located south of the Parks Department’s Shissler Recreation Center, at the intersection of Palmer and Blair Streets. The park is a free neighborhood amenity for all dogs and their owners. Behind the scenes is a dedicated band of volunteers, comprised of Fishtown and East Kensington residents, working together in the interest of making PDD an even better place. Our group is currently applying for non-profit status, which will allow for us to pursue non-profit funding from corporate sponsors who share our vision for a clean, green, community space where dogs can meet and play! All dog park users must observe city laws and ordinances, including: dogs must be licensed and vaccinated; dog waste must be disposed of properly; and/or dogs outside of park must remain on leashes at all times.
