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.

    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.
