Clarks Summit was first founded when the owner of the land, William Clark, received the land as payment for his service in the Revolutionary War. Since then, the summit has become a sister city to Ystradynlais, Wales, and still houses one of the oldest homes in the area, which was built in 1837. What really draws people to the town is the abundance of dog-friendly places and activities, including one animal hospital that is ready to take care of your pup's needs.

The gem of the city for dog walkers is the Abington Dog Park, which is a small park that is completely fenced-in and surrounded by thick woods for privacy and shade. The park itself has separate areas for small and large dogs, an agility course, double-gated dog entrances, water fountains, clean-up stations, and benches.

The next largest park in the city is the Mayor Donald L. Eilenberger Memorial Park, which is located in the center of the city. The area has a mixture of open grassy fields and thick forests that connects to a creek. There is a basketball court, a playground, a picnic shelter, water fountains, and benches. Dogs must remain on a leash inside the park.

Clarks Summit always gives off that small town vibe, and continues to make sure all residents and four-legged residents feel right at home. Come on over!
