Curtis Dog Park

Opened in 2006, the Curtis Dog Park in the lower level of Curtis Arboretum, located at 1250 W. Church Road (at Greenwood Avenue) in Wyncote, offers over an acre of fenced area for our four-legged friends to run and play off-leash. The park includes a pooper-scooper bag dispenser, benches and a separate enclosure for small breeds.
