In the Fall of 2017 I was dropping something off at a friend’s house and as I was leaving I remembered that she worked for a non-profit company. Having worked in non-profits I knew they were always in search of volunteers. I had been looking for a way to give back and when she told me about her company I had to find out more. Within a week, I had a meeting set up with Barbara Ballard and Frank Guthridge of KenCrest who were kind enough to meet me for coffee at the Whole Foods in Plymouth meeting where they told me more about KenCrest and we walked away with a few ideas of how to get involved.
The Pretzel Park Dog Park is an off-leash dog park located along Cresson and Cotton Streets one block away from Main Street in Manayunk. The park is a great place for dogs to run around and get some exercise and a great place to meet other local dog lovers.
