Great doggie watch
Two dog runs, split by dog sizes
A nice big run but the dusty ground and pool makes for dirty dirty dogs. If in the small dog run make sure your pooch doesn't jump the fence to run with the big boys!
Lovely dog park. Enjoy nature!
The Annual Halloween Dog Parade is one of the best days of the year!
Great little park here. It's split for big and little dogs. There's even a poop scoop for when your dog inevitably decides, inside, the park is the best to go.
The annual Halloween Dog parade is amazing. So many dogs sonny costumes!!! Great space for dogs to run around with water fountain. It's pretty quiet and chill.
Great park, clean and well cared for. Other dog owners are friendly and responsible.
Nicely-sized park - but it is abundant with homeless people. We brought breakfast here from Tompkins Square Bagels and then headed to the dog park afterward.
Cute dog park. Don't keep gates open for long
One of the oldest doggy walks. Very large play area for big dogs. Always lots of action.
Listen: don't bring a ball or frisbee to the dog park expecting to be left alone, or even bring the toy home afterward. Expect to have many pups playing, or save it for off-hours/your private park.
My pup clients love this joint!
Watch your dog carefully. Occasionally an aggressive dog gets out of hand.
Ask before you give a treat to another dog. You don't know what kind of diet they are on or what their allergies might be.
Try to keep the doggy pool as clean as you can. We should try to avoid our pups drinking from it. You never know what's in it when its too cloudy
You may catch a celebrity when you visit here. Teddy won the VPI contest and is now featured on back cover of Gay City News
There should be a soap opera about this place. Seriously, drama!
No dogs without people and no people without dogs. Bee tee dubs, human babies, even crawling on all fours, are not an acceptable substitute for dogs.
This place is dirty. Just dirty. Dogs poop all inside the dirt areas where the dogs play and run, and has a split area for big and small dogs. Not a fan. Take them to Washington Square instead.
The pug loves the big-dog run.
Watch where u step
There are hot guys with cute dogs here. All you need is a full bar and you're set.
Spend some quality time with your licensed pup at the Tompkins Square 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
Don't micromanage your dog.
This dog run features state-of-the-art running surfaces, separate runs for large & small dogs, and hoses to spray your dog.
If your dog is 50 lbs, he shouldn't be in the small dog park. I don't care how entitled you feel, this is how pets get injured.
Bring your puppy here early and often... and you'll have a well-socialized and happy dog by adulthood.
Nice clean dog run.
Never open the inside and outside gates at the same time. People that do this are assholes and should be corrected. A few dogs have escaped and been hit by cars, so don't do it.
Love how the current mayor of the dog run is a cat.
Charlie K. is the cutest mutt in the dog park. He wears Ralph Lauren polos.
Calypso loves this park, she like to run around on the wooden deck in the small dog run.
Say hi the heffner if you see him. He's the little frenchie OWNING all the big dogs.
Lots of butt sniffing here. Dogs too.
Capote tears it up!
During the Halloween Dog Parade, prizes are given for the best costumes: past entrants include a few Frankenweenies and a three-headed Cerberus impersonator.
Most people are OK with smoking but don't put out your butts on the ground -- some dogs eat 'em.
Morning crew rules!!! Especially the bench eccentrics! :)
Greg...Better yet only one gate open at one time...people dont seem to understand the concept of a holding pen... lol
Close the door quickly as you enter and exit so the dogs don't escape!
This is a park for dogs, not for children. Don't bring you kids here to let them play with the dogs.
Keep an eye on your dogs and pick up after them. Don't make the dog park a minefield of poop.
Do NOT bring food into the dog park; it is not a good place to have a snack. And please don't feed other dogs treats without first asker the owner for permission.
When I'm feeling sad (or just want a good laugh), the dog park always makes me smile.
