North Bergen is a gorgeous and bustling township in Hudson County, New Jersey. The city has a population of over 61,000, so it offers countless dog parks, pup-friendly restaurants, and over ten vet clinics within twenty minutes of you and your pooch. If you’re looking for a fun time within city limits, take a quick five-minute walk down to the North Hudson Park. This friendly neighborhood park is a natural oasis in the middle of the city, and it’s complete with countless athletic courts, plenty of parking, and even a cute little pond.

If you’re in the mood for a quick half-hour drive into the city, stop by Riverside Park in northwest Manhattan. This large community park is home to four dog runs, countless athletic courts, playgrounds, and even places to eat. In designated areas, dogs can run off-leash until 9 am beside some of the most gorgeous views of the Hudson (and the city skyline) that Manhattan has to offer!

Whether you’ve got a city-loving pooch on your hands or you’d rather stay in Jersey, North Bergen has everything a dog needs to live a happy, active life on either side of the Hudson River.

Right in the heart of North Bergen is North Bergen Dog Run, a dog park that locals are barking mad about! This popular spot features separate areas for large and small dogs, allowing your pet to feel comfortable around pups his own size. With plenty of room to run around, your dog is sure to burn off all that excess energy and get in his daily exercise. Locals advise that this park isn’t for those who don’t want Fido getting dirty; there’s a lot of dirt. However, there are faucets to hose down your dog. This is an off-leash dog park.

There are separate sections for large and small dogs, plenty of seats in the shade, and, to top it all off, a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline. There are also a couple of restaurants nearby, Cavalinos Restaurant and Waterside Restaurant, where dogs are welcome to join you at outdoor seating. A leash is required at both restaurants.

Located 20 minutes northwest of North Bergen is Leonia, where you’ll find Overpeck Park Dog Run, and although it might be a mouthful to say, your pooch will thank you! This dog park features plenty of space for your dog to run around, and there are separate areas for small and large dogs. There’s also plenty of seating for pup parents, complete with a ton of shade. Fido is also welcome to explore the rest of Overpeck Park, but a leash is required once you leave the fenced-in dog park.

If you head north from North Bergen, traveling about three miles, you’ll hit Edgewater, where you’ll find plenty of places to be a chow-hound with your four-legged pal. Feeling fancy? Try La Vecchia Napoli, an upscale Italian eatery where your pet can join you outside during the warmer months. Space is limited, though, and with just 7 tables outside, it’s recommended you call ahead to see if a table is available. Want some more casual? Head over to Brownstone Pancake Factory, which serves up gourmet pancakes. Fido can join you at any outdoor table. A leash is required at both restaurants
