Built in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge was originally designed to be crossed by wagons and carriages, as well as on foot. While a stroll to Manhattan can be great exercise for you and your pup, you don't want to miss a chance to let your furry furiend frolic at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Dog Run!
Located in a neighborhood popularly known as DUMBO, or Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, your pup will love cavorting without a leash here. The name, though, can be misleading, as even though the park is near the Brooklyn Bridge, its actually right underneath the nearby Manhattan Bridge that supports the trains heading to the busy borough. Because of that, the run is quite noisy, so be sure your dog isn't sensitive to loud noises.
At about half an acre, the run is well-fenced and surfaced in concrete. A small hill in the center provides a bit of variety. A pawfect place to romp freely, the dog run is pupular with residents. Relax on a bench while your dog hob-knobs with local pooches. The park is a bit sparse on amenities, so be sure you bring water and a bowl for your thirsty pup. Also keep clean-up bags on hand, and pick up whatever your pup leaves behind.
Once your doggo has had enough of socializing, clip on the leash and take a leisurely walk along the paths to the rest of the Brooklyn Bridge Park, also known as Main Street Park. Grab a spot on the grass to relax and people watch, or just enjoy gorgeous views of the water and the Manhattan skyline. There's playgrounds for the little two-leggeds in the pack, and climbing walls for the family.
