Manhasset is a small hamlet town on Long Island, only 20 miles from Manhattan. The small distance makes the town a great place for families with jobs in the city, and was named the best town for raising a family in the New York metropolitan area by the Wall Street Journal. Most families include four-legged members, and after realizing that, the town dedicated lots of places that are dog-friendly including one animal hospital.
Plandome Park is the favorite place to go to in this puptown. Sitting on the northern corner of the city, the area provides a large space with shaded trails, an open space and small pond with plenty of geese. The park is dog-friendly to leashed pups, and its pretty pupular among dog-lovers in the area thanks to additional amenities like benches, picnic areas, water fountains, a clean-up station, and trash bins.
The Mary Jane Davies Green is the perfect place for dog walkers who don't want to travel too far, thanks to its central location in the city. The area is surrounded by trees, providing plenty of privacy and shade along the paved walking trails that surround the park and weave through it. There's benches, a playground, a gazebo, trash bins, and water fountains that are accessible to dogs as long as they remain leashed in the park.
Whether it's hanging out on the edge of the city in a green space, or walking in the dog-friendly areas in downtown, dog-owners and pups will love living in Manhasset.
