You and your pup will love visiting Verona, a borough located in in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, 13 miles northeast of Pittsburgh on the bank of the Allegheny River. There aren’t any vet clinics or animal hospitals in Verona, but nearby communities of Oakland and Penn Hills have you covered should your pup need medical help.

For your first pup-friendly outing here, head over to the Penn Hills Community Park which sits over the border of Verona and neighboring Penn Hills. This park is great for a trail walk, where you can travel down to a stream and enjoy some quiet time under the trees while your pup sniffs his way around. There are also ball fields and a playground at Penn Hills Community Park to help keep the kids amused.

For another trail walk nearby, head over to Dark Hollow Woods Trail. This 1.2 mile loop is an easy walk through the woods and along Plum Creek. You will need to keep your pooch leashed here, but dogs are permitted to enjoy this area with you.

Feeling hungry? Verona’s Freedom Square Diner welcomes pooches at their outdoor seating area. This casual restaurant is best known for American-style classics, such as pancakes, omelettes or variations on French toast for breakfast. If you are there for lunch, tuck into a sandwich, burger or seafood dish.

Whatever you choose to do, you and your pup are sure to enjoy your stay in Verona!
