Gloversville has a unique history. It was once a hub of American glove manufacturing, with two hundred producers stretched between it and its neighboring town of Johnstown. While most of the glove makers are long gone now, the work ethic and enterprising center hasn’t left this New York town. References to gloves are still all over, including Glove Cities Veterinary Hospital, one of three veterinary clinics in town! Your pup is in good gloves in Gloversville!
Wohlfraths Pond is a great place to take in the local culture in Gloversville. This park’s main draw is a large and beautiful pond. It’s a great feature for snapping vacation pics! It’s also a place to fish, so keep your dog on leash and out of the water to avoid spoiling the pond for others. If your dog needs more room to roam, Darling Field is dedicated to sports. There’s plenty of room there to walk an energetic pup--as long as you don’t mind watching a game or two!
Looking for a dog friendly place to spend the night? Caroga Lake Campground gets you close to nature while enjoying the perks of Gloversville. For a small fee your dog is welcome to join you in your campsite. Any dog will give Gloverville four paws up!
Melchoir Park is a park that’s a full block long. This narrow park is a great place to walk your dog. Laps are a significant investment of time, so one or two could be enough to tire your pup out for the evening! This park is mostly undeveloped green space. Wedged into the dense Central Gloversville neighborhood, the paths in this park are used for everything from walking to cycling. Please keep your dog on leash in Melchoir Park. If you’d like to step off the path and just relax, this park has ample green space. Just pick a field not currently used for sports, and put your paws up!
Just 15 minutes from Gloversville is the neighboring community of Broadalbin. This tiny town has one park right in its center: Pine Park. This park emphasises green spaces to play and room to roam. The park has one gazebo that’s perfect for eating lunch or posing for an impromptu photo op! The other main draw to Pine Park? Fields! The park’s branching paths divide the space into various large, grassy fields. These fields are great for sports--or exploring! Dogs can follow their noses all over this park, and the size means your shy pup doesn’t have to be trapped with a crowd no matter how much traffic the park is seeing today.
