West Islip is a hamlet in the town of Islip on Long Island. The area has had quite a diverse past. Originally settled by the Secatogue people, the area was later under Dutch, and then English rule, before being purchased by Thomas and William Willetts. Ukranian settlers, seeking relief from political repression and economic hardship, came in the early 20th century, and their heritage is still present in the community. This quiet community also supports its furry friends with three veterinarians and clinics ready to respond when Fido is not feeling well.

Visit the Gardiner County Park, a great place to bask in the natural beauty while your pup enjoys his leashed walk on the mile-long path from the parking lot to the beach. Although Gardiner is not a dog park, most of its visitors are people walking their dogs. There’s a superb view of the Robert Moses bridge that is particularly striking at sunset. The park offers a public water spout for dogs to drink from, or for you to wash off the sand.

When hunger calls, head to the Cafe Europa. This pawsome eatery welcomes pups at their outdoor tables whenever the weather is nice. Enjoy your time in West Islip where the water and land meet in beautiful places.

Your pup will love a leashed stroll around the park tree line where he’ll yelp with delight as he catches sight of a squirrel scampering up a tree trunk. Check out the dogtastic lake in the park, a great place for your pup to get a drink or take a quick dip on a hot summer's day.

    #3 Hyman/ Howells


    Just three miles from West Islip in Bayshore, you will find the Anthony Casamento Park. Grab your leash and your walking shoes, and go for a little exercise and fresh air where the open space is plentiful for some playtime and fetching. If your pup likes to catch, he’ll enjoy you bouncing some tennis balls off the outdoor handball walls. The wide-open space makes it easy to get in a leashed walk on the grassy area, but there’s also trees encircling the park. Your pooch will enjoy a sniff-tastic route near the tree line as he explores sounds of the small wildlife living there. The park is also well lit at night, making it a good option for those later walkers.
