Dog Walking in Waterford

Nestled at the junction of the Erie Canal and the Hudson River, the picturesque town of Waterford, NY is as friendly as it is charming. The small city has quite an interesting history -- it’s built around Waterford Village, the oldest incorporated village in the entire United States! 

Waterford’s roots as a port city run deep, and though the harbor may be a little quieter than it was centuries ago, it’s still in operation, and home to the highest set of tugboat lifts in the world. You’ll find more details at the city’s museum, but Waterford’s dedication to preserving its history is just one example of the town’s civic pride. Its strong community spirit is displayed at the many events it hosts throughout the year -- visit in the summer and you and your pooch can take part in the many outdoor events as part of the tugboat festival!

There’s no designated dog park in Waterford, but you and your buddy won’t lack for on-leash exercise options! Clement Park is a pawfect spot for a leashed walk, and there’s a huge state park just on the city’s border. And if your furry friend longs to run off-leash, don’t fret -- you’ll find some fantastic dog parks a little further afield!

Peebles Island State Park is a real mutts-visit! You’ll find a trail here for almost every age and ability, and most of them boast fabulous views of the Hudson and Mohawk rivers. The paths are well-shaded by gorgeous natural woodland, so you can have a good time here even in the height of summer! Peebles Island is famous for its wildlife -- there’s a good chance you’ll spot beavers, deer, eagles, and lots and lots of squirrels. For this reason, there’s a leash limit restriction of six feet. Parking is six dollars, and remember to bring bags and water!

You’d have to be barking mad not to take your buddy to the Department of General Services (and what a wonderful acronym that is) Dog Park in Albany! There’s plenty of space here for your pooch to run around and burn off their excess energy, and there’s a separate small dog area, too, so your pup can play and socialize no matter their size. Not only that, but the park provides two kiddie pools for your furry friend to frolic in! Bags and water are also provided, so just bring your pup and prepare to play!

If you and your pooch are looking for somewhere to chow down, why not take the trip to Downtown Troy? You’ll find some pawesome places that welcome wagging tails with open arms clustered around River Street. For the freshest in Mediterranean food, check out The Greek House -- they cater to canines outside, and they’ll even put out a bowl of water for your buddy on a hot day! If you fancy a quick bite, consider stopping in at The Whistling Teakettle Tea Shop and Cafe. Their range of speciality hot chocolates is to die for, and they allow doggy diners at their outdoor tables.

The Uncle Sam Bikeway is a pawsitively perfect place for you and your pooch to stretch all six of your legs! Part of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy project, the three-mile trek runs along the old Boston and Maine Railroad all the way from North Troy back to the visitor’s center in Waterford. The trail gets its name from Samuel Wilson, a Troy based meat packer believed to be the inspiration for the Uncle Sam figure, and runs under mature trees and past several streams. Be sure to bring bags to keep this amazing greenway clean!

Make no bones about it -- your pooch will love a trip to the Olde English Downtown Dog Park in Albany! This newly-opened off-leash area isn’t quite as large as the Department of General Services park, but there’s still plenty of room for your four-legged pal to leap about and tire themselves out in. Owners will certainly appreciate the ample seating, and cultured canines might get a kick out of the colorful mural. Bags are provided, but unfortunately, there’s no water fountain -- you’ll need to bring your own bottle. It’s also important to note that there’s no separate small dog area, so be mindful of your pup’s temperament!
