Carlisle Barracks’ newcomers: key post policies

By Curt Keester    22 July 2019

Dogs are required to be under control on leashes at all times unless they are in the on-post dog park. All waste needs to be picked up by owners as well. For more information about pets on Carlisle Barracks see CBks Regulation No. 40-1.

Carlisle Barracks offers its community the beauty and charm of a college campus with a history that dates back to 1757. The post features many conveniences of a larger military installation. Services include a dog park located on Liggett Rd., a chapel and retail area housing a Commissary, Exchange, Class VI, dry cleaners and more.

The youth area is anchored by the Delaney Clubhouse on one end and the McConnell Youth Center on the other with the Moore Child Development Center and youth sports field in the middle.

There is a medical and dental 'corner' and campus-wide fitness opportunities with recreational venues scattered throughout the post. They include a bowling alley, golf course, movie theater, and the Letort View Community Center with its Pershing Tavern, Tiki Bar, dance classes and more.
