Jackson Heights is a neighborhood in the borough of Queens, NY, and will bring your outside dog-walking adventures to new heights! With over 100,000 people, its one of the most densely packed communities in Queens. Considering when the town changed its name in the 1950s, the 'heights' was added not due to the town's height, but because it was initially meant to be an exclusive neighborhood. It doesn't look like that turned out, as there are even more dogs then there were people intended to live here!
But with so many dogs, where do humans bring them to walk and play with them? One answer would be the Jackson Heights Canina Recreational Wonderland, a free-membership park that offers separate dog runs for small and large dogs, fenced-in, off-leash areas, double-gated fences, clean-up stations, and doggy water fountains. To become a member, just sign up on the website.
Running and playing would sure tire any dog out, let alone human, but if you're still not done and need even more places to play, then Jackson Heights has you covered. From Bulova Park and Gorman Playground to Travers Park and One Room Schoolhouse Park, Fido will never get bored in this busy neighborhood.
