The Fort Lee Dog Park is an off-leash dog park in Fort Lee, New Jersey. This dog park is located near the William T. Birch Park and is close by the city's recreational center facility. The dog park has a parking lot which pet parents with vehicles can use. The dog park is a piece of ground which the Fort Lee authorities have reconditioned to serve as a canine off-leash exercise area.
It's not the poshest of dog parks by anyone's standards, but the local dogs think it's fantastic. There are two gravel surfaced compounds which are fenced with chain-link. The large and small breeds share a gated staging area which opens up into their individual enclosures. It's a pet owners responsibility to make sure the gate is properly closed to prevent any undesired runaways.
The off-leash areas have a couple of trees, some agility tunnels and a couple of those indispensable fire hydrants which pups love so much. Most dogs using the facility are pretty content with what they've got. Pet parents have a got a bench or two and need to make do with that. This dog park in Fort Lee requires all pooches to be current on their shots before using the facility.
That's a pet owner's responsibility and so is their dog when they're in a dog park environment. Keeping a pup supervised means a pet parent can act quickly if they need to, not just to prevent aggression by it or another dog, but to step in and slow down any over-excited play which could eventually get out of hand.
All pet parents using the dog park facility in Fort Lee also need to step up to, rather than step in, picking up all the poop their pup produces. Doing that simple action helps keep the dog park a clean and healthy place for all the city's pups and their humans to play in.
