Hillside is a small community that benefits from being in the middle of many larger communities. Dog owners are only a short drive away from any service or activity they could need or want for themselves and their furry family member. The town has one veterinary clinic for those routine needs, and nearby municipalities offer plenty of options for emergency services.  

Although Hillside is small, the town has three municipal parks. The largest of them, Conant Park, has some open green spaces and tree-lined walking paths for you and your leashed dog. A few picnic spots make for a lazy lunch on a summer's day. The town straddles the Elizabeth River, and the Elizabeth River Park is also situated in portions of Hillside. This is a linear park that includes a trailway that snakes alongside the flow of the river. This is a peaceful bit of exercise for a person and a leashed dog, with several benches along the way.  

Looking for a real outdoor adventure? Four miles south of Hillside is the 500+ acre Warinanco Park. This is a Union County park that spans the territories of several area communities. A person with a leashed dog will enjoy scenic hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulty. The park is also a favorite spot for boating and fishing, and many picnic sites can be found for a quick snack or lunch with your canine pal.

If you're looking for a quiet community with a big heart and plenty of recreation opportunities nearby, look no fur-ther than Hillside, New Jersey!
