ms_violet: dog park in Northeast Philly?

Does anyone know of a good off-leash dog park in Northeast Philly? Does Pennypack Park have one? Yes, I've tried Googling it, but I'm finding Citysearch pages with descriptions of Center City dog parks.

I did some digging about and I can't seem to find anything for you.
Lots down in center city! I guess you could find a nice field near some industrial place? There was some open field near Ashton and Willits (spelling).

Pretty sure there aren't any. A lot of people let their dogs run off leash at Max Myers or that playground near Best Buy on the Blvd, across from the airport.

We used to take our dogs to the tennis courts at Wissinoming or Max Myers, or let them run back in the railroad-owned property off Ashton and Grant. Also, if you go to the unpaved areas of Pennypack Park (especially off Krewstown) on weekdays, they are practically empty, and usually safe for dogs to run around in.

I've heard of this park in Cheltenham township, but I don't know if it's any good.
