Kent Park is a scenic 10-acre stretch of green that runs along Darby Creek under the historic Lindbergh Bridge. This park has traditionally been used for hiking and fishing and now features a renovated multi-recreational area with a playground, pavilion, and fenced-in dog park.
The Kent Park recreational area is part of Delaware County’s parks system, which includes 616 acres of open, protected space that enhances the environment and gives people a place to exercise, enjoy nature and build community. Kent Park is part of a broader plan to create a Greenway along Darby Creek. For more information on the Greenway Plan, click here.
Kent Dog Park…Calling All Canines!
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.
