One of America’s true melting pots, Passaic, NJ is only ten miles from New York City. A little more urban than some other commuter towns, Passaic is known as the birthplace of television, being home to one of the first broadcasting stations in the country. There’s no need to stay glued to the small screen while you’re there, though -- the town has a strong community spirit, and hosts many cultural events throughout the year. It even has its own film festival for emerging artists! In terms of pet care, there are two veterinary clinics in town, with emergency services available in Clifton.

There’s no dedicated dog park in Passaic, but you and your pooch can still sniff out some exercise options! There are a couple of municipal parks that are ideal for leashed walks. Third Ward Park in particular is a favorite of local dog owners, boasting bucolic walking trails and a serene, spring-fed lake. Stop by in the summer and you and your pooch might be able to catch a concert! Be sure to check out the Boathouse Cafe while you’re there -- this furrific cafe is right on the lake, and welcomes wagging tails at their outdoor tables. And don’t worry; you’ll find plenty of opportunities for off-leash adventures just a short drive away!

    For dog-friendly hiking, look no fur-ther than the Mills Reservation in Montclair! This pawesome county park boasts over 157 acres of wooded wonderland, just six miles away from Passaic. The trails only have a moderate incline, so all ages and fitness levels can take part. Walk around the whole loop, and you’ll be rewarded with views of NYC. Your pooch will need to be leashed, and remember to bring your own bags and water. Once you and your pooch are all tired out, check out Montclair Feed and Pet Supply, a locally owned business with its own doggy bakery!

    You’d need to be barking mad not to visit Brockdale Dog Park! Located just five miles from Passaic, this park has plenty of open space for you pooch to run around and tire themselves out in. There’s a separate area for small dogs, so your fur baby can socialize no matter their size, and plenty of toys on site. However, you’ll need to bring your own bags and water! It’s also well worth taking a wander through the people side of the park. Brockdale Park hosts many festivals throughout the summer, from wine to music to arts and crafts, and there’s miles of well-maintained walking trails to explore!

    #3 Overpeck County Park

    Leonia really is a mutts-visit. It’s home to the Overpeck Dog Park, a pawesome spot with its own doggy obstacle course! There’s a walking trail leading up to the dog run, so you and your pooch can warm up before you let them loose. Like the Brockdale Park, you’ll need to bring your own pet supplies, but there are plenty of tennis balls and pull toys for a fun game of fetch or tug-of-war! The larger Overpeck County Park also makes for a fun day out for all the family, with scenic river walking trails, picnic areas, and activities from horseback riding to kayaking.

    #4 Paterson Falls

    Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park is one of the great gems of New Jersey. Cultured canines might get a kick out of the historical element -- Paterson was one of the great projects of Alexander Hamilton. Unfortunately, your pooch isn’t allowed in to the museum on site, but you two can still get a sense of Paterson’s industrial history by wandering past the factory buildings. More importantly, there are miles of trails for you and your buddy to sniff and explore, and the view of the falls from the bridge is absolutely breathtaking!

    The Sam Nelkin County Park Dog Run in Wallington might not be the largest in the area, but it’d still be a huge faux paws not to visit! Just over a mile from Passaic, this furrific little spot provides everything your pup needs for a thorough workout. There’s plenty of shade, so you can let your pooch leap about to their heart’s content without worrying about them overheating in the summer! You won’t find any doggy dining options in Wallington, but Marina’s Pizza and Restaurant on Paterson Avenue does a mean slice to go, and there are plenty of picnic tables in the people side of the park where you can enjoy it.
