If you’re anything like us at Performance Kia, you enjoy time with your dog nearly as much as you enjoy time with humans. Especially in the upcoming summer months, you’ll notice your four-legged friend begging to go outside, but where should you go? There are several great dog parks in the Scranton area for you to consider, so let’s look at some of the best, shall we?
Best Dog Parks | Scranton/Moosic, PA
Connell Dog Park — Scranton
This is among the most popular dog parks in the area, and with good reason. It has lots of space for running and exploring, and features two different areas for large and small dogs. It doesn’t always offer waste bags, so you might want to bring your own. In general, it’s a relaxing park with well-behaved dogs and humans.
Lackawanna River Heritage Trail — Scranton
While this isn’t exactly a “park” in the traditional sense, it is a fantastic former railroad trail that has been converted to a scenic walking trail. Bring your own waste bags and water, and enjoy a beautiful, historic trail looking over the Lackawanna River!

Luzerne County Rail Trail — Pittston
Much like the Lackawanna River Trail, this trail is found south of Scranton and Moosic in nearby Pittston. While not quite as long as the Lackawanna Trail, this one also offers some breathtaking views and great terrain for you and your furbuddy.
Garden Village Dog Park — West Pittston
For a more traditional dog park atmosphere, enjoy this popular location in West Pittston. With a fenced-in, off-leash location for dogs of all sizes to enjoy, this allows your dogs to get all sorts of exercise with maximum canine interaction. There are also waste bags and water provided.
Eckley Miner’s Village — Weatherly
This attraction is certainly unlike anything found anywhere else: an outdoor museum that is dog-friendly. While this isn’t a dog park per se, dog owners may bring their leashed pets to visit the grounds and enjoy a walk through history. The dogs aren’t allowed in the individual buildings, but it’s still a great time to enjoy a walk with a little added culture.
So where will you go first? We hope that you enjoy these dog-related parks and trails in our area, and that you’ll come see us soon at Performance Kia in Moosic, PA!
