To begin the process to acquire a permit, use this number 724-347-5100. That is the number for HillCrest Flynn, an animal funeral and cremation services company that owns the grounds and maintains the park. The park is fairly small, but there are separate areas for large canines and small canines.
The Hillcrest Dog Park has access to water because it is a members-only dog park. You do not need to worry about poorly behaved or aggressive canines. The ground is mulch and dirt, so your canine might get a little muddy after a good rain. There is also a large plastic doggie pool.
Bags are provided to clean up after your canine and garbage tins are readily available so you can dispose of the waste. There is seating available outside the fenced zone. There is a large plastic tunnel on one side for your canine to run through, but for the most part, it is quite small and may be restrictive for a canine with a lot of energy.
There may not be enough room for long-range games like fetch or frisbee. However, this park is well lit and has security cameras, so it should be a relatively safe place to go in the evenings. There is drinking water available here as well, but you may want to bring your bowl.
There is not much shade available at this park. No trees overhang the premise; there are no structures built to provide shade. Some of the local buildings might give a little shade at certain times of the day, but for the most part, you are exposed to the sun at this dog park. Wear sunscreen and stay hydrated.
