Martinsburg, West Virginia, is the county seat of Berkeley County, which lies on the border of Maryland. It was founded in 1778 during the Revolutionary War. Smack in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains, Martinsburg is as rich with natural sites as it is with historic ones. Its many architectural wonders and parks make it a great place to enjoy a walk with your pup. Remember to take a camera to record the mountain vistas! Martinsburg has four veterinary clinics to attend to your dog's medical needs.
One of the best spots in Martinsburg for frisky pups is Ambrose Park. This four-acre park features grassy lawns, pavilions, manicured gardens, and a children's play area. Most notably, it features the Wurzburg Dog Park, where you can let your dog roam and play off-leash. For a $15 registration fee, you'll have access to the park all year, which has separate play areas for large and small dogs. Funded by donations from a generous community member, this beautifully landscaped park includes water fountains for humans and pups alike, as well as waste bag dispensers and covered seating areas. There are also bathrooms for humans to use.
There's nothing a long walk with your pup in the mountain air of Martinsburg won't cure!
