East Kingston is a hamlet in Ulster County, New York. Though quite small, this little town still has plenty to offer visiting pooches!
Post Park is the number one
place to visit here with your dog. Sitting alongside the scenic Hudson River,
this park is a lovely green space with shade pavilions, picnic tables, BBQ
facilities, bathrooms and a fishing platform. You will need to keep you pup on
a lead here, and please remember to clean up after him. Another great little green space nearby is the
Charles Rider Park, just north of Post Park. Pup will love playing on the grass
or sitting with you while you watch the boats go past.
For pup-friendly places to eat, you have a few choices in East Kingston. TCBY is the place for a sweet icy treat, serving up a huge variety of frozen yoghurts with customisable toppings. Panera Bread has a selection of delicious freshly baked pastries, best enjoyed with a hot cup of tea or coffee. For a more substantial meal, head to Christina's for an Italian-inspired feat. All of these places have outside tables that welcome furry friends.
While there aren’t any vet clinics or animal hospitals in East Kingston itself, there are in neighbouring Kingston, Ulster and Lake Katrine.
With lovely parks, quiet streets, and plenty of places to enjoy a meal, you and your dog will have a lovely time exploring East Kingston and its surrounding areas.
Just south in the city of Kingston is the Kingston
Point Dog Park at Kingston Rotary Park, where your pooch can free himself of
the lead and run, jump and play to his heart’s content. This clean,
well-maintained park is fenced for your pup’s safety and has some water and
waste bags provided. Once he has exhausted himself here, back on the lead you
can go for a walk around Kingston Rotary Park. The paved walking trails make
for a pleasant stroll through the grassed area and offer stunning views out over
the Hudson River. If you fancy walking a little further, check out the 1.5 mile
Kingston Rail Trail, part of the D&H Canal Corridor network.
The nearby town of Kingston is the place to go for a variety of pup-friendly places to dine. For a casual meal out, head to Vincenzo's Pizzeria and Ristorante for familiar favorites such as pasta, subs and, of course, pizza. Duo Bistro specialises in New American cuisine with farm-to-table, sustainably-sourced ingredients. Tuck into a carefully prepared mushroom, onion and barley veggie burger, chopped kale salad, Duo omelette or scallop and ricotta gnocchi. Ecce Terra is an upscale cafe that serve a variety of meals, from pasta or burgers, to seafood or meat dishes. The Anchor is pub-style, if that is more your taste serving cold drinks and classic but quality bar food. After lunch, visit the historic Academy Green Park. The great elms surrounding the park and the central fountain make for a relaxing, tranquil setting, perfect for quiet reflection or a little stroll with your pup around the park.
T.R. Gallo Waterfront Park in the town of Kingston is a pup-tastic park to bring your four-legged companion for an on-lead stroll or play on
the grass. Here you will find Urban Cultural Parks Visitor Centre for more
information on the area, as well as seasonal restrooms and picnic areas. Your pup
will enjoy a nice on-lead walk with you along the waterfront, checking out the
boats in the marina and the shops along adjacent streets. There are two other
parks close by that are worth a wander; Block Park and Cornell Park. You need
to keep your pet on a lead here too and bring your water, a drinking owl for
pup and some waste bags. If all this park visiting has you hungry, there are
numerous places around here that welcome pups at an outdoor table - Armadillo
Bar and Grill, Ship to Shore, Savona’s Trattoria, Golden Ginza and Ole Savannah
Southern Table & Bar.
Rhinebeck, just six miles by car from East
Kingston, has two beautiful places to take an on-lead walk with your
four-legged friend. Ferncliff Forest is a 200-acre old-growth forest with many
lovely trails to explore. You can pick up a trail map at the kiosk near the
entrance, and each trail is clearly marked and well-maintained. The main trail
is a 2.2 mile loop and takes you past the iconic tower through beautiful
woodlands and around the pond. Poet’s Walk Park is set on 120 acres and is a
spectacular place for a quiet walk with you pup through forest and over fields.
There are benches all along the way where you can stop and admire the views.
The 3,000 acre Bluestone Wild Forest offers up
yet more spectacular dog-friendly trails. There are three well-signposted loops
you can choose from, distinguished by the colours yellow, red or blue. The
shortest of these is 1.5 miles and the longest 2.25 miles, so if you are up for
a decent hike, you may like to try a couple of them! These trails take you
through oak stands, past vernal pools and around abandoned bluestone quarries.
If you have a water-loving pup, the Onteora Lake is a popular place for fishing
and kayaking. Your pet needs to stay on a lead through here and pack your water,
picnic food and clean up bags for the trip.
