Located where Grand Concourse and East 156th Street meet, Franz Sigel Park is a quaint park that has an abundance of space for your pooch to run about. There is a fenced-in area where dogs can run leash-free, but dogs must be put back on their leashes after leaving the fenced-in area. A gazebo and a collection of trees provide plenty of shade for the seating areas. Franz Sigel Park is free to enter and is open during daylight hours.
Grab your dog’s favorite toy, or leave the toy at home, it’s your choice because Van Courtland Park is more than just fenced-in grass! Van Courtland Park has a doggie playground and two separate sections for large and small dogs so that every pup can play fearlessly. Dogs are welcome to run leash-free while enjoying the park, but they should be leashed when leaving the park.
If space it was you desire, Pelham Bay Park will grant you your wish. Pelham Bay Park is Bronx’s largest city park – expanding over 2,700 acres! Admission is free, but this park is not a leash-free zone. All dogs must be strictly under a short leash and under their owners’ control while in the park. Please help keep the park clean by picking up after your pet!
