The fenced-in dog run can be found in the western area of this sprawling park, but you'll have to take a trail to get there. Park in the parking area in the southernmost entrance to the Kennedy Dells County Park off of North Main Street (Zukor Road) for the easiest access. Take the paved Kennedy Dells County Park Loop trail that's between the soccer fields west into the trees. Keep walking till you get to a meadow, where you'll see the dog park. It can be a long walk from the parking area to the dog area, but once inside the gates, you can ditch the leash and let your pup run free!
The dog park is one large area, so little pups should be comfortable playing with the big dogs. A bench is on site for you to relax on while your pup romps, but little else is available in the way of amenities. Be sure to bring water and a bowl for your thirsty pup, and clean-up bags. Always stoop and scoop, both in the dog park, and in the rest of Kennedy Dells County Park. Your dog should also be fully vaccinated, and have a current license.
If your pup has had their fill of the the dog park, clip the leash back on and check out the rest of this sprawling recreational pupperdise. Among the great recreational opportunities at this beautiful park are a horse corral, cross-country skiing, picnic areas, and wildlife and forestry conservation sections. Hike the furbulous trails for a wooftastic off the beaten track adventure. You can see the Crum Creek, and even let your pup get a quick dip, on leash of course. An old road will lead you to an old stone dam, the remains of stone arches that previously supported a bridge over the water, and even a stone pumphouse. A lot of the park is undeveloped, meaning you and your pup can truly feel like you are getting away from it all.
Whether playing off leash in the dog park, or discovering a hidden corner of the forest, you and your pup will love the Kennedy Dells County Dog Park inside the Kennedy Dells County Park!
