West Babylon is found in the borough of Long Island, New York City. It is a census-designated area in the town of Babylon, but is often considered a part of Lindenhurst which borders it on its west side. West Babylon is also bordered by the Great South Bay on its south side, and as such, offers easy traveling to beaches such as Cedar Beach and Oak Beach which can be perfect if you and your pooch love to catch the waves together!
Dog-friendly services in West Babylon include multiple pet stores and groomers like Toni’s Dog Grooming & Training. Take your pup here and you can expect them to come out looking great and on their best behavior. It’s a dog owner’s dream! Furthermore, many of the beaches in West Babylon and its surrounding area are dog-friendly, so your furry friend doesn’t have to miss out on a day of fun along the coast.
Like most of New York State, and by extension, Lindenhurst, West Babylon is entirely flat, developed as such in order to allow for a more urban, grid-like layout of the roadways. Despite it being a mostly residential area, it's well removed from any hustle and bustle of downtown spaces and most of the streets have allowed trees to grow, providing shade to the areas that you and your pooch can walk down without a care.
While there are a handful of green spaces in the area, you'll want to be prepared for a walk that mostly consists of residential sidewalks and streets where traffic may not be heavy, but it is still present. Keep your pup on their leash throughout this area as cars may be going back and forth from homes nearby. With the right amount of caution, however, West Babylon offers enough space for you to get a variety of gorgeous views throughout.
West Babylon has numerous greenways for you and your pooch to enjoy. In the residential areas are smaller parks such as the Antony Sanchez Memorial Park which boasts an outdoor swimming pool and a green space for you to walk your pup. Van Bourgondien Park has a multipurpose field that is used for sports activities and dog-walking.
Along the east side of West Babylon runs the Carlls River with Belmont Lake State Park at its north and Southards Pond Park at its south. These large and beautiful parks offer stunning views of the river, nature walking trails, and plenty of wide open green space for you and your pup to explore together.
If you fancy hitting the coastlines, dog-friendly beaches such as Robert Moses State Park are just a 15-minute drive from West Babylon. The beach is great in rain or shine, so dust off those bathing suits and head to the waves. Your pooch will love you for it!
