    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!

    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.

    jeremy phillips · August 8, 2014

    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.

    Suzanne Weinstock · December 8, 2013

    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.

    ºDamian White º · September 26, 2013
  • ºDamian W.

    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!

    ARISTOPETS Pet Care · June 9, 2013
  • Amit S.

    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.

    Amit Sachdeva · April 28, 2013
  • ºDamian W.

    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.

    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.

    Pedigree Brand · November 4, 2011
  • Joe B.

    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.

    Joe Beef · October 26, 2011
  • Eric R.

    Bring your puppy here early and often... and you'll have a well-socialized and happy dog by adulthood.

    Nice clean dog run.

  • Geoff S.

    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.

    Considered one of the best dog parks for your little furry friends. The park has separate spaces for the larger and smaller dogs. Read more · April 13, 2011

    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.

    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

    Sean Hunt · August 3, 2010
  • Greg

    Close the door quickly as you enter and exit so the dogs don't escape!

    Greg · April 30, 2010

    This is a park for dogs, not for children. Don't bring you kids here to let them play with the dogs.

    Greg · April 30, 2010
  • Mike B.

    Keep an eye on your dogs and pick up after them. Don't make the dog park a minefield of poop.

    Mike B. · April 13, 2010
  • Dan F.

    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.
