Dog Areas in Marietta, NY

Located in Onondaga County, New York, Marietta is a little hamlet nestled just fifteen miles southwest of Syracuse. This quaint community is pretty small—Marietta is home to only three restaurants! Nevertheless, the area’s rural surroundings, small size, and close proximity to four vet clinics in neighboring Marcellus make it an ideal place to bring your precious pooch.

The most popular dog hangout in Marietta is Otisco Lake Park. Feel free to bring Fido along as you fish for walleye, musky, and trout on the cold waters of Lake Otisco, the most eastern of New York’s eleven Finger Lakes. All the park asks is that you clean up after your furry friend, obey the state leash law, and keep your pup’s license tag visible on his or her collar.

If you’re not a big fisherman or you’re feeling up for a scenic twenty-five-minute drive, head on over to the county’s Jamesville Beach off-leash dog park. Great news: during the winter months, your pooch is free to swim.

After your day on the water (whether fishing or swimming), head on over to Patisserie for a sweet treat. This beautiful bakery is just ten minutes outside of Marietta in neighboring Skaneateles, NY. There are several pet-friendly tables on the outdoor patio.

Marietta is a small community, but it’s a great place for both pets and their owners! This hamlet’s close proximity to Otisco Lake, neighboring towns like Marcellus, and larger cities like Syracuse make it an ideal place for you and your pup!

    If you and your pooch are in the mood for some light exercise, grab your bike and make a quick seventeen-mile drive up to the Auburn-Fleming trail in Auburn, NY. This 1.6-mile path is a former rail line that has been transformed into a bike-accessible, dog-friendly trail! The path runs through farmland and is an easy walk or bike ride for dogs and owners of any fitness level. If you need to get some shopping done after your hike, stop by the PETCO on Clark Street Road to browse their products, visit the grooming salon, or get a puppy photoshoot! Don’t forget to grab a treat from the cashier on your way out: your pup will thank you!

    If you and your pooch want something a little less crowded than the off-leash dog park over in Jamesville Beach (or maybe you’re not ready to let go of that leash just yet), be sure to swing by Elmwood Park. Although not exclusively for dogs, this park is dog-friendly—just be sure to keep that leash on! This beautiful sixty-five-acre park is proud of its gorgeous wildflowers, flowing stream, and covered picnic pavilion. After some fun at Elmwood, you and your dog will surely have worked up an appetite! Visit Dinosaur Bar-B-Que before making the half-hour drive back to Marietta. Humans and fur babies alike will be comfortable on the outdoor patio!

    Fayetteville is home to two state parks, but the most popular among the canine crowd is definitely Green Lakes State Park. With doggie bags and clean-up stations available, this gorgeous glacial lakes park is ready for you and your pup at any time. The park offers a golf course, kayak and rowboat rentals, a campsite, a disk golf course, and four separate pavilions over its 1,774 acres and ten miles of trail. Don’t leave Fayetteville after the hike, though: remember to stop by Panera Bread on Towne Drive to refuel before the thirty-mile drive back to Marietta.

    #5 East Syracuse

    If you want to visit the East side of Syracuse, you and your canine companion can’t pass up a chance to visit Old Erie Canal State Park. This park is supported by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy—a nonprofit organization that works to turn old rail lines into hiking paths. This path is almost 280 miles long, so it runs through several New York counties! After exploring trails with your pup, be sure to make the ten-minute drive over to Blue Tusk. This bar is a beer (and dog) lover’s paradise with comfortable outdoor patio seating and sixty-nine beers on tap every night. After dinner, it’s just a quick thirty minutes back to Marietta!
