The community of Gwynn Oak, located in western Baltimore County, Maryland, is a wonderful place to call home. Gwynn Oak was once home to a famous amusement park called the Gwynn Oak Amusement Park, which was open from 1893 to 1973. While this park was once the biggest draw here, today the community has several other great qualities, including good shopping, schools, and homes. Gwynn Oak is mostly a residential community with many tree-lined streets that are pawfect for taking a casual stroll with your dog. Gwynn Oak has a humid subtropical climate where you'll get to experience all four seasons each year, so if you've got a pup who loves rain, snow, or sunshine, they're in luck!

In southern Baltimore, just an 18-mile drive from Gwynn Oak, is Latrobe Park, and within Latrobe Park, there's a popular spot for dog owners called the Locust Point Dog Park. This park is fully fenced in and has astroturf, trees, and rocks.
