Hudson River Park offers four dog runs, with a variety of features for both small and large four-legged friends. Take advantage of beautiful scenery while your pooch exercises and socializes in a safe environment along the beautiful Hudson River.

Chelsea Waterside Dog Park’s unique play mounds provide new vantage points for your precious canines to play with their friends while getting some much-needed physical activity. Dogs of all sizes are allowed here, and plenty of shade is available for pet owners during the summer months. We are also happy to say that we are working on plans to expand the dog run! Stay tuned for more information as planning progresses.
