A Greenwich Village favorite, the Leroy Street Dog Park was rebuilt several years ago to include new amenities for dogs of all sizes. Especially popular during warm weather are the dog pool and dog-friendly fountain. There is also ample seating for dogs’ human companions. This dog park is a short walk from other destinations in the Park including Pier 45 and Pier 46.

Hudson River Park offers five dog parks, each 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. Remember to be safe, obey the rules and respect the Park and others. Read all about dogs in Hudson River Park in this brochure.
