Walk in the Park

Okay, it might be a little chilly for a picnic, but Mother Nature does like to give Pennsylvania a few days of warm weather here and there during the cold season. If you're not up for a bougie picnic, you can still bundle up and take a nice walk or run. There are lots of parks that you can bring your dog to year-round. This is a great way to get some exercise for both you and your pup! Be sure to check the park's website to ensure the conditions are safe and your dog is welcome. Some of our favorites are Blue Marsh Lake, French Creek State Park, and Jim Dietrich Park. You can also take your dog to the Reading Public Museum to walk around the property outside!
