Dog Areas in Hanover, NJ

4 Parks
1 Trail

Hanover is a mixture of residential homes, parks, and business development right in the heart of Morris County. The township of Hanover is close to a network of major highways, making it ideal for commuters and visitors alike. 

Hanover has its own airport and hotel business that brings in plenty of revenue to keep the area thriving. More young families are moving into the area and putting down roots, making it a great place to bring the whole fur family! 

Hanover was first settled in 1676 and incorporated as a town in 1740. Before that, the Leni-Lenape Tribe lived and hunted in the area. Settlers and developers were attracted to the location because of its abundance of natural resources, including iron ore and water power. 

Hanover has managed to maintain a balance between economic development and environmental preservation. The town is a beautiful place to walk your dog, with plenty of public green spaces sprinkled all over. Monroe Park is right outside of Monroe Hall, a historic building once pivotal to the town. This park is just one of the many historic places with plenty to learn while your pup gets some exercise. 

There are two animal hospitals right in Hanover and several more in the neighboring communities.
