White Oak is a small suburban town outside of Pittsburgh. The village became a borough in 1948, and was named after the think white oak trees that populated the area. Although the trees are now scarce, the town has grown into a lively residential area with plenty of outdoor space. You and Fido won't have trouble finding a place to go for a walk in White Oak.
The city has it's own dog park, known as the White Oak Dog Park. This grassy, fenced-in area provides a secure place for dogs to run around off-leash. The park has all the needed amenities, like clean-up stations, a double-gated fence, water, and even a covered picnic and sitting area. The rest of White Oak Park which houses the dog park is dog-friendly, and offers paved paths leading through the forested areas of the park. Fido must remain on a leash outside the dog park.
The Hertage Hill Park is another valued dog-walking area, and features open fields for play and shaded benches for rest. The park has parking, trash bins and water fountains located around the park, with plenty of space for Fido to run around on-leash.
The city also has one animal hospital, and plenty more dog-friendly options, which will be leaving you and Fido calling White Oak your fur-ever home!
and is home to the Boston Ballfield, a dog-friendly park that provides plenty of greenery for Fido to run around and play. Fido must remain on a leash, but can play on the vacant field or the ballfields when teams aren't playing. If the park is too crowded, the Youghiogheny River Trail is a 5 mile trail along the Youghiogheny River, and is part of a more extensive trail system called the Great Allegheny Passage, with over 300 miles that links Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C. Fido is welcome on the trail while on a leash.
