Ambridge is a borough that's located along the shore of the Ohio River, 17 miles from Pittsburgh. The small town was named after the American Bridge Company and continues to bridge its ties with humans to its four-legged residents. Ambridge is always growing, providing residents and pups with new places to play, walk, and get some exercise. The town also has one animal hospital to cater to the health needs of its pups.
The Ambridge Borough Park is the largest park in the city, with a little something for everyone. The developed area of the park provides residents with two enclosed baseball fields, maintained open spaces, picnic shelters, grills, and restrooms. The rest of the park includes rural forests and trails, with over 3 miles of hiking paths made from dirt and gravel. Dogs must remain on a leash while at the park, but have access to water fountains, benches, and clean-up stations.
Economy Park is another dog-friendly park in the city that allows leashed pups inside. The park has over 24 acres of land, including woods, open fields, tennis courts, and trails. Dogs are welcome in the enclosed tennis courts as long as not in use, or can enjoy a decent walk along the winding paths. Additional features of the park include water fountains, restrooms, a pavilion, and benches.
Ambridge offers charm, friendliness, and a beautiful downtown to not only humans but their dogs as well.
