Just 30 minutes from New York City, Belleville is a wonderful town to get away from the big city. Thoroughness and quality of care are just two of the features offered by the Amity Animal Clinic in Belleville. A few miles away, there are five other vet clinics and hospitals in nearby towns to choose from.
Dogs often enjoy spending time at the West Hudson Park where they can walk the asphalt trail that follows along Woodland Drive and circles around Fairy Lake. The kids can climb on the playground equipment while Fido and his parents relax on a bench and chat with friends.
When spending time with Fido and the family, plan to go out for dinner at Michael’s Roscommon House where you can enjoy burgers, pizza, or fish and chips. The outdoor tables are perfect to relax in the sunshine and let your pup enjoy a bowl of water and a snack.
Pampering your pooch is also fun if you stop by My Love Pets on Main Street. You can find healthy dog food and treats for Fido in addition to a new collar and leash.
Whether you live in Belleville, or you are just passing through, get out and enjoy the town with your pup.
The 32-acre Belleville Park is a beautiful wooded area where you can walk Fido and spend time with the family. While strolling along the path, you will see wildlife, so be sure to keep your pup on his leash. If you are out with the kids, they can play on the swings while you and Fido relax on one of the shaded benches. The cherry trees are beautiful in the spring, and your pup can roll around in the grassy areas while you breathe in the fresh cool air. Clean restrooms and trash cans are also available, so plan a day at the park and make your pup happy.
Walking and bike paths are both key features of the Reinheimer Park in the Bloomfield neighborhood. Over 9-acres of space is plenty of room to run and roam. There is a playground available for the kids, and pup parents can relax at the shaded picnic tables while the pups are having a snifftastic time. Near the park, you can also find a great lunch at the Bosphorus where Turkish and Mediterranean dishes are on the top of the menu. With a large outdoor patio, there is room for you to sit with friends and Fido.
Pups enjoy socializing just like their parents, and visiting the Brookdale Dog Park is perfect for warm sunny afternoons when Fido needs to play. The off-leash park has two sections, one for large dogs and one for smaller pups. The agility equipment in both sections allows pups to show off their tricks and talents. Water fountains are also available in the park as well as doggie waste stations. With a double-gated entry, you will not need to worry about your pup getting lost on the way to and from the car. If you bring the kids, they can have fun at the playground while your pup is running off his excess energy.
Just 7 miles north of Belleville, you and your pooch can enjoy 85-acres of open space at the Riverside County Park. In addition to tennis and bocce courts, Fido will love the off-leash dog park. You can let your pup run and fetch a ball or his favorite toy while you relax on a bench and chat with friends. Outside the dog park, there are walking trails where you can admire nature and enjoy the shade trees. Friendly dog parents will greet you as you and your pup spend time in the park. If you are feeling hungry, head over to The City Lounge where the large dog-friendly patio is perfect to enjoy burgers and wings at happy hour.
Yanticaw Park in the Avondale neighborhood is perfect for spending quality time with your pup. The park is located between Centre and Chestnut Streets, and offers plenty of walking trails and a small lake. Throughout the park, you can stroll along the walkway and look at the wetlands and the well-maintained gardens covering over 28-acres. There are water fountains available, but you will need to provide your own doggie waste bags to clean up after your pup. After some energetic exercise, treat yourself and the pooch to a pizza at Luna Wood Fire Tavern. Relax at the outdoor dog-friendly tables and enjoy the evening breeze with your pup by your side.
