Wantagh, New York is a vibrant city in Nassau County widely
known for its exuberant nightlife. The party isn’t just limited to the local
humans, though; this fast-paced community has plenty of dog-friendly hot spots to
check out with your furry companion!
The dog run at the Wantagh community park is a great leash-free
space to blow off some steam and make new friends! You don’t have to worry
about muddy paws here because the enormous dog enclosure is covered entirely in
astroturf! There are usually plenty of tennis balls on-site to enjoy, as well
as doggy bags to clean up the less enjoyable aspects of the park. The best part
is there are always plenty of fur-iends to play with here — even some doggy
internet celebrities have been known to frequent this spot!
No need to worry about how you'll take care of
those hunger pangs after that intense game of fetch. There are three
dog-friendly dining options within city limits! For some casual upscale Italian
food, paw on over to Umberto's Restaurant & Pizzeria. Grab a pup-friendly
seat on the patio and enjoy signature dishes such as chicken cacciatore or veal
milanese — just like “Grand-paw” used to make! If you still have room for desert,
swing over to the Carvel Ice Cream parlor for a sweet treat that is so doggone
good it should be sinful!
