Meadville is a quiet town nestled among the thick forests of Pennsylvania. The city was the very first permanent settlement in the northwestern part of the state, and now has historical landmarks and a Pennsylvania Historical Marker. The area will soon become the first pick for dog-lovers too, thanks to the abundance of dog-friendly areas and two dedicated animal hospitals.
Cora Clark Park is the top pick for dog-lovers in Meadville, thanks to the dense forest that makes up the park, and cleared out paths that expand all over the area, giving dogs and humans plenty of room to run, walk or take a good hike outside. The park is pretty rural though, so owners will have to bring water and clean-up bags.
Next door is the Hudekoper Park that offers shaded trails, grassy fields, recreational ballfields, and a picnic area! Dogs are welcome at the park as long as they remain on a leash, and can even go into the enclosed tennis courts for some safe running around. There are also water fountains, trash bins, and benches located throughout the park.
Quiet, cozy, and absolutely dog-friendly, Meadville will become a top pick for anyone looking for a dog loving city!
Conneaut Lake is just 10 miles west of Meadville and brings a lot of dog-lovers to the town thanks to the Conneaut Lake Bark Park. The park is over 36 acres of land that is all fenced-in with separate areas for larger and smaller dogs, and a third for optional use. The area is made up of grassy plains with trees along the outside, which provides shaded sitting areas during the summer heat. The park is open year-round, provides cold water, vending machines, two ponds which are open for dogs to get into, a .25-mile walking trail, and picnic shelters inside the fenced-in areas. Owners will also find clean-up stations, benches, and trash bins.
