Long Island Dog Parks from East to West
Nassau: Old Bethpage Restoration Dog Run
This free Long Island dog park opened in 2009 and is the county’s sixth dog run. It is located at the Old Bethpage Restoration on Round Swamp Road in Old Bethpage. This dog park separates the big dogs form the smaller ones and features “green water,” which is collected rain water that is filtered for the dogs to drink. The hours of operation here are Wednesday through Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the Boy Scouts of America even donated park benches for the owners to relax on while they watch their dogs play.
Suffolk: Cherry Avenue Dog Park
Located on Cherry Avenue in West Sayville, this park has dozens of on-leash walking trails for you and your pup, along with off-leash areas to allow the dogs to run free at their leisure. This Long Island dog park organizes canine friendly events for all to enjoy and is the main reason behind the off-leash beach at Mud Creek County Park. This non-profit organization is on a mission to make more parks and beaches dog-friendly.
East End: Southampton Dog Park
Located in Southampton Village, this park was built in 2014 to give dogs and their owners a simple way to socialize with each other and for the dogs to be able to run free. Open from dawn to dusk, this is the perfect place to take your pups to play with other dogs and ensure they are getting the exercise they need. Right now, this park has one area for all dogs to play in, but they are hoping to have two separate areas for big dogs and another for small ones in the future.
Long Island dog parks are a great way for you and your furry friends to enjoy some time outside running free, while in a safe, controlled area. Long Island is filled with places for you to check out with your dog. Don’t hesitate, go enjoy some time outdoors with your favorite companion.
