Watervliet is a small town north of Albany in New York. While most people come to the area for the state capital, they may miss a lot of what this town has to offer. Follow your dog's nose to the best place for dog-friendly rest and relaxation: Watervliet! Of course, the locals think it's pretty great year round. Who can argue, when the area has its own veterinary clinic and over a dozen more in the immediate surrounding area? Watervliet combines the best of both worlds: you can get the city services with the small town atmosphere. 


Looking for a charming location to soak in Watervliet culture? Alleghany Park is a small neighborhood park off the beaten trail that shows you how locals live. This park features a full basketball court, a tennis court, and a large open field for whatever you want. Let your dog's nose lead you through it, or swing by to walk laps on your own. 

You can also explore Maplewood Historic Park for a great example of local preservation. You and your dog can tour the preserved foundations of historical buildings! 

Local favorite Ted's Fish Fry is a dog-friendly delight of a restaurant, serving fresh, hot seafood, and burgers to an expansive outdoor patio! 

Watervliet is a dog-friendly town with plenty of park space to explore!

    Hudson Shores Park in the self-named Watervliet neighborhood of Watervliet is a must-see in the area. This park has amazing views of the Hudson, as you may have guessed. It's popular with fisherman and kyakers, so you know there's always going to be something to catch your dog's eye! This busy park is great for exercising your dog. With so much to water and sniff, even an energetic dog will get tuckered out soon. You can also head to Watervliet Veterans Memorial Park. This park features statuary and examples of war vehicles. Leashed dogs are allowed provided respect is shown to the area and what it represents.

    Clinton Park is the place to take the whole pack. There's a playground for children and sports fields for people looking to break a sweat. Sadly, outside of the movies, dogs can't play basketball. Your pup won't mind being left out if you take him to explore the large, open green space. Whether your dog likes leashed romps through the grass, sniffing out squirrel trails, or simply enjoying fresh air, there's something at this park for him. The park has a few short paths, but nothing that really amounts to a walking trail. If you want to start a cookout, though, you'll have lots of room!

    #3 Ridgefield

    Watervliet's Ridgefield neighborhood is home to Brotherhood Park. This residential park is largely dedicated to one thing: the baseball diamond. This spot is typically teaming with teams, from little league to adult sign up. If you're looking for a quick and convenient place to walk your dog, this is it. Pop in headphones and lead your pup around the ball field. There's plenty of room, so walking laps will get the job done sooner rather than later. There's also a small grass section outside the baseball field for relaxing, eating, or just rolling around. Your dog should be leashed in Brotherhood Park.

    The 7th Street Park is a curious park split by the road. One side of it is completely dedicated to a baseball field. If you just want to walk laps until your dog is tired enough to be good all day without you home, this is the side to go to. Walk laps, watch someone play ball, and have a blast. If you want to entertain the kids or have a picnic, go to the other side. The longer, skinnier side of 7th Street Park has a playground and a few green meadows, in addition to a horseshoe pit! With something for everyone, it's no surprise this park is often very busy!

    #5 Port Schulyer

    Schulyer Flatts Cultural Park is a great addition to the Port Schulyer neighborhood of Watervliet. This park appeals to a variety of interests, but most dogs and the humans that walk them are going to be interested in the loop path. This wide, paved path is not a challenging walk, but it is designated for the activity. There are also historical plaques along the way! If you'd like to learn a little local history while stretching your legs, this is the walk for you. Be sure to keep your dog leashed, as you have to share the path with cyclists, joggers, and other dog walkers!
