Dog runs & off leash areas in NYC

New York City parks are dog friendly. The Parks Department has designated certain areas within parks welcome dogs. Park hours are 9am-9pm. When using dog friendly areas, the Parks Department requires that owners have proof of current dog license and rabies vaccination. Two types of areas exist which allow the owner and dog to enjoy NYC parks:

Dog Runs: Large, fensed in areas in which dogs can excerise unleashed. These runs are designed for play, while providing good drainage, safe lighting, and health plantings.

Off Leash Areas: Dogs are permitted to be off leash from 9am to 9pm. Park Rules must be observed at all times.
