East River Esplanade Dog Park is an off-leash area for your dog to get exercise, socialize and play with other dogs. The park is covered and fenced which helps keep your dog safe from harsh weather. Little dogs have their own space while larger dogs have their designated area. The park also provides fresh water for the dogs. However, you can also bring along a bottle and portable bowl if you don’t like your dog to share community bowls with other dogs.
The dog park overlooks the street and water which gives pet parents a beautiful view and environment. All dogs that visit the park need to have their vaccinations up-to-date, including the rabies vaccination which is required by New York state law. It helps prevent the spread of canine diseases and illness.
The park is a decent size and has things for your dog to play on such as a small bridge and large cement blocks located throughout the park. If your dog likes to jump and run this is an excellent place to let him burn his energy.
Bring your own poop bags for cleaning up after your dog. The park is cement, and it’s easy to keep clean. There is also a hose and drain that helps keep the park sanitary. Aggressive dogs need to be removed from the park immediately. Pet parents that refuse to remove their aggressive dog will cause other owners to leave the park and come back another day.
Overall, this park is conveniently located for dog owners in the area. It’s clean and welcoming. It provides dogs with a safe place to run off-leash and socialize with other dogs. The park is also accommodating to pet parents by offering a great view of the water and safe place to bring their dog. You can also enjoy talking to other pet parents while you watch Fido play.
