If you and your pup are looking for the hippest spot in Brooklyn to take a break, get away from the busyness of the city, and enjoy a beautiful and serene natural area, you need to try out dog walking in Prospect Park. This 526-acre park is an incredible gem in the fast-growing borough of Brooklyn and has much to offer for dog owners and their furry friends. 

From designated off-leash hours to let your pup run around and play with other dogs or chase after balls or frisbees, to beautiful and relaxing nature trails that are home to many native species of birds and plants. The park is run by the Prospect Park Alliance in conjunction with New York's Parks Department, so you know it's well maintained and laid out for a variety of activities, including a beautiful run on natural trails or lounging in the meadow and relaxing on the grass.

Dog walking in Prospect Park, NYC is the perfect way to unwind from a long day at work or spend a relaxing Saturday in the summer. The park is mostly flat and trails are well maintained and accessible for older dogs (and people) or family hikes with little ones who insist on walking the dog themselves. 

Prospect Park planners truly thought of everything. From multi-use meadows that carve out time and space for city dogs to get a taste of country life and feel the grass beneath their feet, or beautiful jaunts through some of the oldest growth forests left in Brooklyn. There are several different trails that take you through unique habitats, but remember to keep your dog on the leash in these places. The wildlife and plants in this park are special and an off-leash dog could chase or harm wildlife and trample sensitive plants.

One of the best dog walks in Prospect Park is the Midwood trail. This .75 mile loop takes about thirty minutes to complete and feels like the ultimate time machine. Starting near the Audubon center, you'll stroll through an incredible, old forest that was preserved in the original planning of the park and serves as a historical reminder of the forested land that came before the bustling city.

Your dog is going to be most excited about the off-leash hours (5AM to 9AM and 9PM to 1AM) at Longmeadow, Nethermead, and Peninsula Meadow. For these glorious hours, dogs run the park and are allowed to run and play with dozens of new friends. There is even a place to go for a swim during the dog days of summer on Dog Beach. There are numerous dog-friendly events and meet up groups that connect fellow Brooklyn dog owners for play dates in the park.
