Dog Areas in Jersey City

7 Eateries

Jersey City has a total area of a little more than 21 square miles, which may not seem to offer much room for recreational activities. However, the city is home to several important landmarks, the most recognizable of which is probably the Statue of Liberty. This monument attracts hundreds and even thousands of visitors every day, drawing in guests and their pets from all over the nation.

The public parks in Jersey City are maintained by the Division of Parks and Forestry. The Leonard Gordon Park, which is notable for its Buffalo and Bears statue, has trails that loop through its 5.7 acres. There is also a dog run here, so you and your pup can both get some exercise.

Another dog-friendly area is Hamilton Park, where dogs are welcome in the fenced-in area and allowed to run off-leash. The park has a small splash pad and tennis courts, as well as open spaces where you and your pup can enjoy the sun or the snow as the seasons change.

If you’re running short on supplies or simply in the mood for some shopping, duck into one of the city’s local pet stores such as Hound About Town or Canine Canteen. They have all the things you need to keep your pet safe, happy and healthy, and most are glad to have canine visitors. Best of all, you're supporting local business by shopping in these unique stores. With so many options, you and your dog can easily while away a day in Jersey City.
