If you have a dog and love stunning views of the Delaware River or the Ben Franklin Bridge, then you might want to think about hitting up the grand opening of the Market Street Dog Run tonight. The event is held from 6pm to 8pm at the newly constructed park located near the Market Street ramp stairs. It looks like there are two areas, presumably to separate larger dogs from their smaller friends. The park is dotted with trees and shrubbery for a fresh look and much needed shade. Two wooden benches are being installed on the east side of the dog park as well. Much like the incredibly popular dog area at the Schuylkill River Park, the adjacent staircase leading up to the Market Street connection ramp provides elevated views of the Delaware River and also for dog/crazy owner-watching. ·Delaware River Waterfront Corporation [Official]
