Middle Village in Queens is primarily a residential community with a furiffic park and easy access to several facilities and dog runs in the surrounding areas. Most streets are lined with row houses and have sidewalks where you and your dog can go for a walk. If you need professional services for Fido, you'll find a veterinary clinic in this area.
There's a nice park with a dog run about five to six miles west of town. Take your pooch to Msgr. McGolrick Park off Driggs Avenue to get in some play time with other pups. Dogs need to be licensed and up to date on rabies vaccinations to use this facility.
You can also take your furry friend to Rainey Park to enjoy some off-leash play time by the East River. This facility includes a paved walking trail and a fenced dog run. Let Fido socialize with other canines, or leash up and go for a stroll together through the rest of the park. Rainey Park is about eight miles northwest of Middle Village.
Less than four miles southwest from Middle Village, you and your four-footed pal can go exploring together in Highland Park. Walk or jog on the forested pathway that loops around Ridgewood Resevoir. Keep your pup on a leash no longer than six feet and clean up any messes.
Living in the city doesn't have to cramp your style if you own a dog. The areas around Middle Village have an abundance of pup-friendly facilities.
