Dog Areas in New Hyde Park

2 Parks
4 Groomers

New Hyde Park, NY is a truly unique area. Walking through the town, it’s hard to believe you’re only fifteen miles from Manhattan! Downtown, you’ll find a wide variety of locally owned businesses, some of which have been in the hands of the same family for generations. There’s a real village vibe here, with all of the community spirit that brings, and many civic events take place at the historic New Hyde Park Inn. There’s even a vegetable show, where residents can show off their home-grown produce! There are three veterinary clinics in town to look after your furry friend, with 24-hour care available in Westbury.

There’s no dedicated dog park in New Hyde Park, and many parks in Nassau County ban pups altogether. There’s good news though -- since spring of 2016, several parks have been opened up to leashed pooches! As any pooch-loving New Yorker knows, transportation can be an issue when sniffing out off-leash adventures. Long Island is fairly car-friendly, but if you need to take the subway, your fur baby can only travel if they’re in a crate or carrier. There are ways around this rule, and you may be treated to the amusing sight of commuters with 50 lb. pups strapped to their backs! However, you might have take a taxi if your canine companion can’t be caged.

    #1 North Hempstead


    While Michael J. Tully Park doesn't have an actual dog park, it does have the advantage of being one of the few pooch-friendly places just within walking distance of New Hyde Park. You might not be able to let your furry friend run free, but there’s still plenty of space for on-leash exercise! The many sports fields make this green space a local favorite, but you and your pup will need to keep to the paved pathways or risk a fine. Remember to bring your own water and bags!

    #2 Flushing

    Many owners find the off-leash hours at Alley Pond Park a bit inconvenient. The dog run opens sunrise to 9 AM, and 9 PM to 1 AM. However, it’d still be a huge faux-paws not to pay a visit! If you can make the off-leash hours work for you, you’ll find an open space where everything is provided, so you and your pooch can enjoy a spirited game of catch without being laden down with bottles and bags! However, the real draw to Alley Pond Park is the miles of natural trails. A leashed walk in these scenic surroundings can make you easily forget that you’re in the middle of a large city! Pooches are welcome to explore this park on-leash outside of the designated hours.

    #3 Fresh Meadows

    The Cunningham Park Dog Run in Fresh Meadows is a real mutts-see! There are separate runs for large and small dogs, so your pooch can frolic and socialize no matter their size. The area has plenty of seating for tired owners, and bags are provided. The water is shut off during the winter, so you’ll need to bring your own bottle during the colder months! After you and your furry friend have worked up an appetite, check out Greek Family Eats on the other side of the park. This family-run restaurant welcomes wagging tails at outdoor tables, and the staff will put out water bowls on a hot day!

    #4 Eisenhower Park

    If you can make the eight miles to Eisenhower Dog Park in Westbury, you’d need to be barking mad not to go! The large and small dog areas are quite large, so there’s plenty of space for your pup to leap about and tire themselves out. Bags are provided, but like Cunningham Dog Park, there’s no water in the winter. The larger Eisenhower Park is an excellent option for a more sedate, leashed stroll -- the trails, lake walks, interesting  sculptures and playgrounds make for a pawesome day out for the whole family!
