The homely town of Coopersburg is only 8 miles from downtown Allentown, backed by thick woods to the southeast and farmland to the southwest. The area has been around since the early 1700s and has always had a small population, but has gained plenty of attention from dog lovers thanks to being the hometown of the author of Marley and Me. The town still loves all its rambunctious and well-behaved pups, and provides multiple parks and one animal hospital for them.
Dog walkers and their pups can head to the Living Memorial Park to fill their outside needs. The area is made up of rolling green hills and recreational fields, with over 8 baseball diamonds of different sizes and some fenced-in, paved walkways, restrooms, and a picnic area. Dogs are welcome in the ballfields to run around and play as long as they remain on a leash. Additional features include water fountains, trash bins, clean-up stations, benches, and nighttime lights.
For those looking for something closer to nature, the Moyers Lake and Campground is a dog-friendly place to bring Fido out to play or spend the night camping. The area contains a small field along Moyers Lake, providing open space, a picnic area, a boat launch, a fishing pier, and dog-friendly swimming holes. The camping spots are dog-friendly, with trash bins and benches, but require dogs to remain on a leash at all times.
From small downtown life to nature adventures in the woods, Coopersburg provides all and more than you and Fido need to be happy living in this town.
