Dog Walking in Rockaway

A center for iron manufacturing during the Revolutionary Period, Rockaway is now a modern New Jersey borough with a strong sense of history. About an hour's drive from New York City, Rockaway is home to two animal hospitals to keep your best friend in tiptop shape.

Make sure your pooch stays happy and healthy by taking him for daily walkies! The Jackson Avenue River Park is a furrific place to do just that. With the Rockaway River flowing through this quiet park, you and Fido will be treated to beautiful views of the water as you take a leashed stroll around the area. Benches and picnic tables provide several spots to relax and eat, so do pack some food and treats.

The adjacent Donatoni Community Park is another good spot for Fido to stretch his legs. Doggos are welcome on the walkways as long as they are leashed and cleaned up after. The park houses a playground and athletic fields, but these are off-limits to four-legged visitors.

If all that walking has made you and your pooch hungry, head over to Missy's Main Street Cafe to grab some food. This eatery is very pup-friendly, with outdoor tables and even a menu especially for dogs!

Visit the Borough of Rockaway for a pawsome time with Fido!

Go on a nature getaway with Fido at the Farny State Park in nearby Rockaway Township. Explore the great outdoors of New Jersey as you and your pup follow the various hiking trails that meander across the 589-acre natural area consisting of a mixed oak harwood forest, streams, and swamps. Before entering the park, you will see the Splitrock Reservoir, which provides drinking water to Jersey City. Other activities that are available at the Farny State Park include birdwatching, fishing, and cross-country skiing in the winter. The park follows a “carry in, carry out” policy, so be sure to pick up after Fido. Bags are supplied throughout the site in case you forget to bring your own.

The Central Park of Morris County in nearby Morris Plains houses a dog park that's pawfect for pooches of all sizes and energy levels. The expansive site is divided into three sections: one for small dogs; another for large dogs; and a shared area where everyone can go on a short, off-leash nature hike. The Central Park County Dog Park is very popular, so Fido will surely make some new friends here. If your pooch is shy and not sociable, go for a quiet walk in the woods at nearby Mountain Way.
