There are two dog runs at Tompkins Square Park. One for large dogs and the other for small dogs. If you have a medium sized dog, however, they can run loose around the flag pole.
There's a pile of fertilizer in Tompkins Square Park you can't miss it. There's also piles of human shit sprinkled around Thompkins Square Park too, though, so watch your step.

5 Reasons to Love TSP: #1. The Sunday Greenmarket. #2. The HOWL! Festival. #3. The dog park. #4. There is actual grass. #5. People watching.
Tompkins is a great EV park. It's definitely one of my favorite people watching locations, with passersby embodying many EV idiosyncrasies.
Great place to run laps in the city without interruption from cars and crosswalks. Be weary of the Sunday Market, though.
Enjoy the peace and calm under the hare krishna tree!
BbAll on the back courts!!!!!!!!
