Off Leash Area at Rt. 100 Park
1625 North Route 100, Fogelsville, PA 18051

UPDATE:
Due to the popularity of RT 100 Dog Park and excessive wear and tear, the large fenced area is closed.  Currently, only the small fenced area is open to all dogs.

Enter at your own risk. 

We are also in the planning stages of opening another Dog Park at Grange Park to meet the needs of the growing demand.
