Though the name may sound like the last place you want to take your dog, don’t let that put you off. Ozone Park was originally named to lure in buyers with its fresh and crisp breeze, especially coming from the ocean. To this day, while the name itself may seem to have unpawpular connotations, the actual location is a sight to behold. While not central to the busy streets of New York City, it’s just close enough for you to enjoy all the sights and sounds and still be able to step away into suburbia when you and your pup are done exploring.
One such attraction that you’ll find near Ozone Park is the notorious Sirius Dog Run, named after one of the search canines who lost their lives during the September Eleventh disaster. It’s a fantastic fenced-in dog run, with well-maintained pavement that will be easy on your pooch’s paws. The locals are exceedingly friendly, and the location is popular with tourists and those who call New York home. You and your fuzzy friend are bound to meet plenty of new and friendly faces, and potentially make some pals that will last you and Fido through the ages.
