Best Dog-Friendly Parks In New York

Silver Lake 

Most dog runs are grass-free, but this spacious Staten Island spot takes a green approach with fenced-in fields and lucious trees. 

Van Cortlandt Park 

Fancy a workout? This 14,000-square-foot park, dubbed the Canine Court, offers agility obstacles like hoops.

Pelham Bay Park

Just a short walk from Orchid Beach in the Bronx, this dog run was redesigned in 2015, adding separate sections for small and large dogs.

Lou Lodati Park

A decade in the making, Sunnyside’s first dog run opened in 2013 as part of a $1.4 million overhaul. 

Rockaway Freeway Dog Park

Looking for ample space? With nearly two acres of grass and paved walking tracks, Queens’ largest dog park has all the land you and yours could need for exercise. 

Little Bay Dog Park

The city granted this green space a $500,000 upgrade in 2010, and it has since become a Bayside must with its scenic water views. 

McCarren Park

This little annex to McCarren Park is almost entirely shaded and offers park benches for humans to sit and watch the puppies at play. 

Dyker Beach Park

This Dyker Heights fave attracts a substantive crowd because, well, the park itself is huge. It’s split into two sections.

Herbert Von King Park

This Bed-Stuy park is divided into two areas, but they're not segregated by dog size. The main area is larger and a bit dustier from the wear and tear of puppy paws.

Brooklyn Bridge Park

The ground is rubber at this Dumbo go-to, so there’s no mulch or dirt to muck up your puppy’s paws.
