People tend to check in during these times:
Doggie pools and water bowls are available at the park. Bring your own tennis balls!
Swimming hole for dogs in the summer! Great dog park.
Cool for the dogs not for the humans on a hot day.
Great secret entrance for this dog park at 60th and York. It's a ramp closed to cars, but works for runners and people to get to the river walk - it will save you going the long way at 63rd.
Spend some quality time with your licensed pup at East River Esplanade Park Dog Run. For info on dog licensing visit: http://on.nyc.gov/M85uPu. For more info about dog runs visit: http://bit.ly/Ra5S4w
Usually pretty crowded but it's a very nice location next to the river.
Stay away from a German Shepard named Riley.
If you are running alongside the river, this is the ending point of the path.
The park is accessible at 63rd & York, over the pedestrian bridge. They have separate runs for large and small dogs, and there are even paddy pools! Great way to keep your pup cool on a hot day!
