This is the prevailing theme at all four parks in Ambler. As someone who doesn’t own a dog, I hadn’t given it much thought until recently. The topic has come up several times on the Ambler facebook page and it seems that there are many residents who are in favor of at least one of our parks becoming dog friendly. There is a large number of dog owners in Ambler, that is evident when walking or driving through town and also at the Ambler Main Street community events, particularly the most recent, Dog Days! One of the many wonderful things about Ambler is that it is a walkable town, having to put Fido in the car to visit a quasi-local dog park seems contradictory to one of the major benefits of living in town. With so many dog owners, doesn’t it make sense to have a dog friendly park in the borough, within walking distance? In my opinion, it’s a no-brainer! I suspect many residents, and four legged friends alike, would be happy if any of the parks were to allow dogs, I think Ambler Borough Park is the perfect spot. It is a beautiful, tucked away park that encompasses almost nine acres, complete with a large play area, walking paths and a creek. It is well maintained by the borough and there seem to be few who use it. If you would like to see a dog friendly park in Ambler please comment below and let’s get the ball rolling!
