East Orange, New Jersey is a densely populated city located in Essex County. East Orange residents benefit from being part of a larger metropolitan area. There is only one animal hospital in the city limits. However, dozens of veterinary clinics can be found in the adjoining communities. 

Active hounds will be happy to know the city maintains 7 parks. These are mostly small green spaces with ball fields and sports areas dominating the space. Soverel Park and Opal Playground have walking tracks as well as green spaces where people and leashed pups are welcome to walk. 

Essex County has also dedicated many acres for recreational use. The county has thirty parks that offer many opportunities for outdoor exercise with your leashed four-legged friend. Watsessing Park has 69 acres of land which occupies portions of East Orange and Bloomfield. This park lets people hike the many trails with their leashed pup. South Mountain Reservation has many hiking trails that will challenge a hiker and his furry companion  Some trails are rugged paths that end at an overlook, so be sure to bring a camera. Easier trails winding through the forest satisfy a person and a dog's need to be outside smelling and seeing the natural world. This park includes a fishing pond and a picnic site for another day's adventure.

The many recreational spaces in and around East Orange make it a furrific place for pups and their parents to live or visit!
