Dog Areas in Richmond Hill, NY

1 Park
2 Groomers

Urban, diverse and thriving, Richmond Hill, New York City has all the amenities of the big city with a quiet, residential atmosphere. Peaceful though it may be, the area is as vibrant as it is friendly. The neighborhood’s melting pot boasts many ethnic restaurants, food shops and clothing stores, with many cultural festivals taking place throughout the year. It’s home to a furrific dog park, and there are two vets nearby to take care of your buddy, with 24-hour care provided just a short distance away in Forrest Hill.

Anyone who’s traveled in New York with a dog will tell you that the main problem with taking your pooch around the city is transportation. In a city where few drive, the subways and buses will only take dogs in carriers -- leading to a cottage industry that makes carriers for dogs that weigh up to fifty pounds! If your canine companion can’t be caged, you might need to rely on cabs to get a bit of variety in your activities. Some taxis won’t take pets, but many do, so this might be an option if you want to take your pup to see the sights in and around Richmond Hill!

    #1 North Richmond Hill

    North Richmond Hill is home to the green and spacious Forrest Park. The park contains two pawesome off leash dog areas -- one in the park proper, and another at the Forrest Park Overlook. The Forrest Park Dog Run, by the Woodhaven side of the park, is a pup’s paradise, with a doggie obstacle course and plenty of toys. There’s a separate area for large and small dogs, and there are water bowls available, but owners have to bring their own H2O. Overlook Park is smaller and a mixed area for large and small dogs, but no less charming, and you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city while your pooch tires themselves out!

    #2 South Richmond Hill

    While Phil Rizzuto Park is much smaller than Forrest Park, and has no dedicated off-leash dog area, it does have the advantage of being in walking distance from Richmond Hill. There’s still plenty for you and your pooch to see and do, though. While the main draw of the park for locals is its sports facilities, dogs are allowed on the fields as long as no one is playing, and the perimeter of the park is great for leashed walking! There are plenty of seats for owners, and trees provide shade for dogs in the summer. There are trash cans provided, but be sure to bring your own water and poo bags!

The Underbridge Dog Run also has a bridge over to the Flushing Meadows Corona Park, one of the largest parks in the city.

    #4 Fresh Meadows


    If you can make the four miles to Fresh Meadows, it would be a huge faux-paws not to give the Cunningham Park Dog Run a visit. This excellent dog park has two doggie drinking fountains and two large runs -- one for large dogs and one for small dogs -- so your pooch can socialize no matter their size! While you’re in the area, you may want to take a leashed stroll through Cunningham Park to get to the excellent Greek Family Eats on the other side of the park. Technically located in nearby Hollis Hills, this restaurant welcomes dogs in their outdoor seating area. On a summer day, they’ll even provide water!

    #5 Sunnyside


    Sunnyside is located six miles away from Richmond Hill, but the area’s two furrific dog parks makes it well worth the trip! The Lou Lodatti Dog Park at the corner of 43rd Street and Skillman Avenue has separate areas for large and small dogs, plenty of seating, and bathrooms for owners located near the entrance. The Sherry Park Dog Run on Queens Boulevard has much more room for your pooch to play in, but it's a mixed area, so be mindful of your pup’s temperament. Keep in mind as well that the water is shut off in the winter -- you may need to bring your own bottle!
