From mid-April through the beginning of November, there is fresh running water for your pup and there is drainage in the park so puddles don't accumulate into ponds. There are also doggie pools for your pup to splash in if he wants. You can sit on one of several benches while you watch your dog run around with the other pups. The park is cleaned twice daily and the cleaning schedule is posted, but that doesn't mean you should not pick up after your pup. Bring your own bags and dispose of any dog poop immediately.
The quaint park is located at W 23rd and 11th Streets and is closest to the C and E subways at 23rd and the M23 bus line. This park is small itself, so there is not a separate area for small dogs. If your dog is not a fan of climbing hills, playing on cement, or jumping in pools of water, this may not be the park for him. Be sure to monitor your dog and only take him to the park if he is trained to come when you call.
While the park is only cement and it might be tempting, humans cannot bring their wheeled toys such as skateboards, strollers, scooters, rollerblades, etc. into the park. Any children who are under 12 must be supervised by an adult. And most importantly, your dog must be up-to-date on his vaccinations and healthy. Make sure he wears his collar with tags.
