Mechanicsburg in Pennsylvania is surrounded by fields and old farmland, with a bustling downtown and large residential area. The town is 8 miles west of Harrisburg and is known for its growing expansion into the railroad that runs through the town. Dog lovers in town will know the town for its dog-friendly atmosphere, it's very walkable streets and shopping district, and 5 different animal hospitals.
The small-town has lots of places to take Fido, but the best by far is Mechanicsburg's Doggie Dugout. The area provides your pup with a place to run around off-leash safely, with two separate fenced-in areas for large and small dogs, double-gated entryways, and a large grassy field with shady trees. Dogs and humans will enjoy amenities like water fountains, free water bowls, picnic tables, lounge chairs, clean-up stations, and trash bins.
The Lower Allen Community Park is on the south side of town, and provides residents with a huge space for multiple purposes. The area is surrounded by trees, with grassy fields, 3 different fenced-in baseball fields, paved walkways, tennis courts, and a basketball court. There's plenty of room to run around and play, or different paths to go for a long walk. Your pup must remain on a leash at all times, but has access to water fountains, trash bins, clean-up stations, nighttime lights, and benches.
With so many different things to do with your pup, its no wonder that Mechanicsburg has become such a hotspot for dog-lovers from all over the area.
