The borough of Pennington may have only fewer than 3,000 people, but it has many amenities to offer a person with a pup in the family. Folks will find three veterinary clinics in the borough to take care of most of your canine friend's needs. The parks in and around the borough also make for some great exercise outdoors.
Kunkel Park has great green spaces for a person and a leashed dog. A picnic area greets its visitors for a relaxing outing with a canine companion. The nearby county park, Mercer Meadows, has five trails to explore on a leash. These trails range in length from .7 miles to 4.2 miles. They are either mowed or gravel and aren't difficult for a person and dog. The Lawrence Hopewell Trail actually connects to Rosedale Park, which has a trail that connects back to the main street in Pennington.
In town, a person and pup may want to grab a bagel for breakfast or lunch at Pennington Bagel Experience. The outdoor chairs will welcome you and your canine companion. For a sweet snack anytime, Viva Gelato on Main Street has five outdoor tables which will make your visit with a four-legged friend comfortable. Viva Gelato sells a variety of sweet bakery items as well.
For a family with a dog (or three), Pennington makes for a great visit or perhaps even a permanent home!
