A furrific dog run sits inside Little Bay Park, a gem bordered by water on two sides in Queens, New York just waiting for your dog! Pupular with Bayside locals, visitors and their fur kids, Little Bay Dog Run is a medium-sized fenced area inside the larger park. Its crushed stone, sand, and grass surface is pawfect for sensitive pup paws, and a drainage system underneath keeps mud and puddles in check.
Enclosed with a five-foot fence, the dog run has double security gates to keep pups safely inside and there’s a separate play area just for small pooches. Dog parents can chill out on benches and enjoy the pawsome view while keeping an eye on the action and monitoring their fur baby’s bathroom breaks. Waste bags are provided, along with large garbage disposal pouches to put the filled bags in. It’s a good idea to carry a few clean-up bags with you when you visit in case the park's supply runs out.
When your fur face needs a break, a water fountain, shade trees, and a small gazebo provide some welcome coolness. Free parking is easy in the lot to the south of the dog run, and leashes no longer than six feet need to be in place for the walk to and from. Restrooms are nearby as well.
A paved walk and bike path just outside the dog run lead to the rest of pleasant Little Bay Park, the waterfront, and Utopia Parkway. Dogs need to be on a leash anywhere outside the dog run, as they may encounter a few park critters like ducks, geese, squirrels, and egrets as you head for the stone jetty that reaches out into the bay. City park rules make it clear that dogs must not chase or harm any wildlife they see.
Pups must have a current license and rabies tag on their collars when visiting the park and dog run. You and your pup’s best park behavior will keep you both out of trouble, so remember to be polite with other dog-lovers and their furry friends.
If you and Fido are looking for a furbulous place for doggy play, Little Bay Dog Run is a pawfect fit!
