My name is Jessica and I have over 10 years of experience in animal care that includes volunteering in dog rescue and working as a Veterinary Assistant. I have spent most of my time walking & socializing dogs in an animal shelter, and caring for those we've saved in a privately run boarding facility. Working with animals is my greatest passion and their safety & well-being mean the most to me. I can't wait to spend time with your pet!

There are ten towns in Suffolk County, New York, and one of them is known as Babylon. It has a population of over 214,000 people, and it's only 20 miles from New York City. The town's history dates back to 1710 when Babylon was known as Huntington South. "The New Babylon" was inscribed in the chimney of the first home built in the area. In 1830, Huntington South was officially known as Babylon, and the town has been growing ever since. Today, it's a great place to live and play with your pets, and there are several veterinary offices in and around the area.
One of the dog-friendly attractions in Babylon is the Tres Palms eatery. It's a casual place with delicious food and drinks that is a staple in Babylon. They have seven outdoor tables that welcome dogs, so you don't need to leave Rover at home when you head out for a bite. This waterfront bar and eatery offers dishes like a Fiesta grilled cheese sandwich or grilled shrimp pinchos and wash them down with a refreshing Bloody Goose cocktail. Once you get a taste of Babylon, you'll see why so many dog owners love to call it home!
Bay Shore is just a few miles away from Babylon, and it only takes a seven-minute drive to get from Babylon to West Bay Shore, where the Gardiner County Park is. This park is known for being dog-friendly, and it offers an abundance of on-leash trails and even a beach you can bring your dog to! There is also a workout trail with exercise stations so you can get your workout done right alongside your dog. If you happen to forget waste bags or water, this park offers both, so you're all set up for a pawfect trip to the park with your pup.
Huntington, New York is just a hop, a skip, and a jump from Babylon, and a 25-minute drive will get you and your pooch to the West Hills area where you'll find the Walt Whitman Trail. This 4.25-mile trail is an easy hike for you and your dog to do together, but they must be on a leash. You are likely to come across some other four-legged creatures, as many people like to ride horses on this trail as well. You may need to dodge a few, ahem, messes that horses make along the trail, but this scenic hike is worth a little side-stepping.
The hour drive from Babylon to lower Manhattan and the Stuyvesant Park Dog Run is totally worth the trip, and your dog will be thanking you for taking them on such a fun adventure. This fenced-in dog run is known for being well-maintained, and there is plenty of shade for hot days as well as seating for pet owners. Across the street from the dog park is a separate park with flowers and fountains that is also a nice place to walk your dog, but they have to be on a leash unless they're in the dog park area.
There's a paradise for both dogs and for humans only a 20-minute drive from Babylon. The Blydenburgh County Park is located in central Hauppauge and it's a 627-acre park with hills and valleys galore, and in the center of the park there is a lake known as Stump Pond. Your dog can join you anywhere in the park as long as they are on a leash, but there is also a separate two-acre area further divided into two areas where dogs of different sizes are welcome to play off their leash. The dog park also features drinking water for humans and for dogs, so you'll be all set when either of you need to hydrate and take a break from playing.
The lovely residential neighborhood of Salisbury is located in Westbury, New York and it's where you'll find the Eisenhower Park Dog Run. Driving from Babylon to Salisbury only takes 25 minutes, and you and your dog will both be glad you made the trip. Eisenhower Park Dog Run has plenty of space for dogs to run and play, and it's divided into areas for big and small dogs so your pet can play safely with dogs of a similar size. The park also provides waste bags, seating, a shaded pavilion, and drinking water for dogs. As a bonus, there's a parking lot designated for dog park users as well.
