Four-Legged Friends Program

The Hudson River Park Four-Legged Friends program enables dogs, their dog people, and businesses to build a “pawsitive” community and ensure our dog-friendly Park stays clean, green and growing (with tails wagging). Woof!

By raising awareness and investing in our Park and its dog runs, the Four-Legged Friends community makes a difference every single day for HRPK pups and dogs. Our public dog spaces are in need of constant maintenance, cleaning and renovations. Together, we care for and continue building our dog-friendly Park.

Your annual Four-Legged Friends membership means you’ll enjoy VIP opportunities and discounts at local businesses who are Community Partners. This is one of the best ways for dog people to enjoy the Park and help it thrive.

Every fall and spring, we invite our dog-loving community to special dog-friendly events that feature treats for pups and humans, dog photography and more!

Dog run ambassadors are the key volunteers and outreach leaders of our Four-Legged Friends program. The only requirement: You are outgoing, enthusiastic and a dog-loving regular at your local HRPK Dog Run(s).

HRPK Friends is honored to have so many adorable many four-legged members. Our special dog-focused memberships include an exclusive event, a HRPK dog tag and inclusion in this gallery.

Your input can help cultivate and grow our dog-friendly Park and programs! We want to know all your dog-related interests, from meetups to your favorite local pet-care businesses. We can’t grow this community without your help.

Donate today to support the care and cleanliness of our dog runs. Or start a Bow-Wow Dog Birthday Fundraiser and do some tail-wagging good for your community. To start your own fundraising page, click the “Start Fundraising” button. You’ll earn woofs and wags of gratitude!
