The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Albany
Hartman Road Dog Park in Karsfeld, Albany, is a gift to dogs and their humans. This large off-leash park is located in one of the less densely populated parts of Albany. The park is roomy with ample fenced in space for dogs to unleash their energy. It has a kiddie pool in the summer, and frequently has doggie bags provided for easy clean-up. The gazebo and picnic tables allow you to take a break while your pup socializes, and there is water available in site-just don’t forget a bowl!
Washington Park is a centerpiece of Central Avenue. This large park is a multi-use dream. There are paths for walking, courts for sports, and playgrounds for kids. There’s also a hidden gem in Washington Park. One of the large, unfenced fields is recognized as an off-leash dog park! Walk deep into the park and you can find half a dozen dogs playing on an average day. Because the area isn’t fenced and the park is popular, it’s not a great place for shy dogs. If your pup is confident and playful, don’t sniff around for better options--head to Washington Park!
If you want to burn some energy, head to Woodlark Park in Pine Hills. This small, residential park allows leashed dogs onto the grassy areas and paths. Take a few laps to calm down, or gain energy with a meal. Nearby Junior’s offers solid American grilled and fried sandwiches and apps, and has outdoor seating for small dogs and their dining companions. Big dogs can head over to Capital City Gastropub. Their seven outdoor tables allow your dog to join you for a brew and some elevated pub fare.
Upper Washington Avenue
Upper Washington Avenue is a neighborhood by dog-lovers, for dogs. There are three great parks close to one another that give your dog options. On a hot day, head over to Frank Waterson Park for a shady walk that includes a sprinkler stop. For off-leash fun, Westland Hills Dog Park is the place to be. While Westland Hills Park is a great place to exercise dogs who aren’t ready to be off-leash yet, Westland Hills Dog Park located inside offers separate areas for large and small dogs, doggy water fountains, and lots of friends for your pup to meet!
North Albany Shaker Park
The Department of General Services Dog Park is not an exciting name, but this park is awesome. It’s worth a trip from anywhere in Albany (and beyond) to check out this dog park. The area is large, fenced, and well-used. Sociable dogs will love the park’s popularity. Dogs also love the water stations in the park. Doggy fountains and bone shaped kiddie pools make this the coolest place in town. There’s also a large gazebo to keep dogs and humans out of the sun. If you need a place to sit while your dog burns energy, this is the place to go!
