Bisected by Roaring Brook and sitting on the slope of the Moosic Mountains, Dunmore, PA really has it all -- a safe, small town with a real village vibe, just minutes away from the urban amenities of Scranton. Originally part of the Providence Township, Dunmore broke away in the late 1800s. The new borough took its name from Dunmore Park, Scotland, home of the late-Victorian architectural folly "The Dunmore Pineapple", which looks exactly how you think it does. These days, Dunmore (PA) is known as a family-friendly place with a strong community spirit. The civic pride of its citizens is evident everywhere, from the mom and pop shops downtown to the strong support for local football team, the Dunmore Bucks.
There’s no designated dog park in Dunmore, but that doesn’t mean that you and your buddy are bound to be bored! Sherwood Park might not be the largest, but it’s still a good spot for a leashed walk, and you’re just a bone’s throw away from some nicer parks in Scranton. If you and your pooch fancy a pick-me-up, check out the Electric City Roasting Company -- they stock specialty coffee beans from around the world, and their breakfast isn’t bad either. And if your furry friend needs to run free, don’t fret -- you’ll find some pawesome dog parks a short drive away!
