  • Beech Creek Gardens | Pets are always welcome on our grounds, even inside the buildings. We just ask that you have them on a leash and clean up after them. New - Pets are prohibited from entering the two areas where our new raptors from Raptor Hallow Sanctuary are kept, as the birds are easily spooked by the dogs. These prohibited areas include the Wild Wonders Trail located off of Oakview Trail (hiking with dogs on Oakview Trail is permitted) and one of our greenhouses where some of the raptors are being kept over the winter. Keep an eye out for signs indicating that dogs are not allowed in these two areas.
  • Outdoor Recreation and Parks | Hit the trail with your furry companion!
