Allow Fido to embark on a leash-free adventure in the scenic landscape of the Ebensburg Dog Park in the charming town of Ebensburg, PA. With your furry friend's well-being in mind, the park offers two thoughtfully designed fenced areas, one tailor-made for petite pups and the other catering to their larger counterparts. Spending hours at this park will be a piece of cake with the array of amenities offered, including water and waste stations, benches, obstacles, and shade trees.

Following an afternoon of fun, take a quick eight-minute drive to the Quality Inn Ebensburg to snuggle up with your pup for the night.
