Yaman Park is your cue to get away from it all! This large, spacious park is a dog’s dream. The only drawback is that dogs do have to be leashed in the park, but there’s so much space your pup won’t even mind! Take a walk down by the lakeside. Follow the paths around the edges or stick to the lakefront beach. Work up a sweat or relax to your heart’s content. There are also extensive grilling stations, so you can bring a cooler and get your grill on. Bringing your own supplies is good in general, as this fantastic park is large and sparse on drinking fountains.

The Tuller Hill State Forest makes up a large chunk of South Cortland, and is a must-see if you’re in the area. Dogs are permitted in the park if they’re on a six foot leash or shorter. There are a variety of trails through Tuller Hill State Forest, so you can choose the best for you and your pup. While most are rated as moderate, the Tuller Hill State Forest has more challenging climbs for those who seek them out. If you’re exploring in winter, remember to keep off the ski paths! This park is a step back into nature, so bring in everything you’re going to need while you visit. This includes water and doggie bowls!
