There are places in Lyndhurst from which a person can literally see the skyline of Manhattan. Lyndhurst may be small, but that doesn't mean people need to drive long distances for their conveniences. Two veterinary clinics, one of which operates 24/7, are available when even a short drive is too long when a precious friend has been injured or needs immediate medical treatment.
People with dogs especially appreciate the abundance of green space here. Lyndhurst has ten public parks in its city limits. Eight of them are city parks, which are the smaller of the parks. Some are just a few acres in size and aren't much more than patch of grass and a set of playground equipment.
One large park, Richard W. DeKorte, is operated in cooperation with several government entities. This park is an estuary that is home to many migratory birds. The park gives its visitors a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline. DeKorte has 6 designated trails with 3.5 combined miles. None of the trails are over a mile long. A couple of them are paved and wheelchair-accessible. Dogs are permitted on leash on all the trails except the Marsh Discovery Trail.
Are you and your hound hungry after all that hiking? You'll find plenty of Fido-friendly eateries here to keep you from feeling famished! One is City Lounge, a sports bar that serves typical pub chow, like sandwiches and an assortment of simple dishes. It has three outdoor tables that welcome dogs. Bob's Bagels is a great spot to grab some all-day breakfast, and Colonial Diner is a local favorite that's open 24/7. Both establishments serve pets and their parents at the outdoor tables.
Lyndhurst provides everything a dog could want -- food and outdoor exercise!
