Bark for your Park.



Dixon Street Dog Park

Located in Trout Creek Parkway near the intersection of Dixon Street and South Delaware Street, the park includes two pens on two acres, one pen for smaller dogs and one for larger dogs.

The project was made possible by a $25,000 grant from Pet Safe’s Bark for Your Park program! The City was the recipient of one of just five grants across the country for a new park. In addition, Pet Safe awarded Allentown $10,000 for dog park maintenance.  Allentown is the only Pennsylvania municipality to receive any funding from the program.

All dogs must be registered with the Parks and Recreation Office. This can be completed online here. Proof of current Rabies/Distemper Vaccines and Lehigh County Dog License will need to be submitted during the registration process. Once your application is submitted, reviewed, and approved, you will be given a key fob to access the dog park.
