Dog Areas in Boonsboro

2 Eateries
Boonsboro, Maryland is located in Washington County, about 20 miles from Frederick. The town, originally named Margaretsville, was incorporated way back in 1831. After Margaretsville, the name was changed to Boonsborough. Locals didn't like that, though, and neither did journalists; they said the name took up too much space when printed in newspapers. Because of complaints, the spelling was changed to Boonsboro, although the original spelling appeared in official documents until 1903.


Your dog doesn't care how the name is spelled, though. They care about whether or not they can have a fun day exploring the town with you! Boonsboro is home to two dog-friendly restaurants. Dan's Restaurant and Taphouse dishes up traditional American fare and offers many types of beer on draft. Vesta Pizzeria and Family Restaurant, simply called "Vesta" by locals, serves fantastic Italian food. Fido can join you at either restaurant's outdoor tables. 

Boonsboro doesn't have a dog park, but you shouldn't worry too much. The town's close proximity to Frederick easily allows you to have some off-leash fun. Perhaps most importantly, Boonsboro does have a couple of veterinary clinics, so care for your canine companion is never too far away.

Boonsboro is a beautiful small town that has a lot to offer both you and your dog.

    Ballenger Creek Dog Park is about a 30-minute drive from Boonsboro, and if you're looking for somewhere to let your dog get some off-leash exercise, this is the place! This dog park is divided into two sections; as is the case for most dog parks, one is for small dogs and the other is for larger dogs. Ballenger Creek is surfaced in lush, green grass with no artificial turf in sight, so you can be sure your dog can safely run around. Water and waste baggies aren't provided by the park, so you'll want to make sure to bring your own.

    #2 Gathland State Park

    If you and your dog like going for hikes, make sure to visit Gathland State Park! It's about 11 miles from Boonsboro. History buffs will enjoy seeing the War Correspondent's Arch. Your dog, though? They'll definitely enjoy all the sights and smells of hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Your dog must stay on a leash while on the trail; this rule is strictly enforced, as it could be very easy for your pup to run off and get lost. You can also park your car at the entrance and camp overnight with your dog, if you're feeling adventurous and want to "ruff" it!

It's important to know that each dog must have someone over the age of 18 with them; children are also not permitted in the dog park.

There's also plenty of seating if you're tired and just want to let your pup play with their new pals.
