Walking Fido in the city may be a difficult task sometimes, but East Elmhurst, NY makes it pretty easy. As a neighborhood of the borough of Queens in New York City, the area is in the northern center of the city, lying along the Flushing Bay. With over half a dozen parks and one animal hospital, you won't have any trouble giving Fido the care and exercise he needs.

Overlook Park is without a doubt the perfect place for a walk. From a thickly wooded area to a hilly terrain, you won't be able to overlook this park. The park has trash bins, water fountains and a long walking trail that zigzags throughout the park with beautiful views of the bay and LaGuardia Airport.

If something more open is what you're looking for, head south to Hinton Park, an area occupied by open fields and baseball fields. Dogs must remain on leash around the park, but have plenty of space to run around with access to clean-up stations and benches.

East Elmhurst has plenty more options like Planeview Park, Bulova Park or Veterans Plaza! No matter where you choose to go, Fido will be sure to have fun and get out all that energy!

    #2 Flushing

    Only 3 Miles away, the Flushing neighborhood is a great place to go for East Elmhurst dog-lovers. For those looking for an enclosed space, Lawrence Triangle Dog Park is the top pick for free-roaming pups. The park is fenced off and allows off-leash dogs to run around safely, and provide clean-up stations, benches and trash bins for the human's benefit. Fido may want some more room to run about though, which is why Kissena Park would be the next best option. Kissena Park allows all on-leashed dogs to enjoy the .75 miles of trails, different tree species and the scenic views of Kissena Lake. Dogs are even allowed near the lakefront to enjoy fishing!

    #3 Willets Point

    Anyone who has visited the Willets Point neighborhood of Queens knows it's small, mostly made up of shops and businesses. But as the neighbor of East Elmhurst, and only 2 miles away, it offers the closest activity for Fido and you. That activity is the Flushing Bay Promenade, a waterfront greenway that makes up more than 1.5 miles of trail on the northern edge. The path is welcome to walkers, cyclists, and dog-walkers with leashed-dogs. The track offers not only serene views of Flushing Bay and lush fields encompassing the greenway, but also clean-up stations, water fountains, trash bins, and benches!

    #4 Brown Park

    Brown Park is one of the most densely packed neighborhoods in Queens, and only 5 miles away from East Elmhurst. Despite being so populated, the community still has plenty of parks to offer, like Harvey Park. This open area provides any leashed dog the room it needs to run around, with plenty of trees surrounding it for great privacy. If that doesn't suit your dog's needs, head over to Memorial Field of Flushing, a place with paved, shaded trails that make for a walk no matter time of day, and enclosed recreational baseball fields and tennis courts that allow dogs to come in and roam freely.
