The Palmetto Playground Dog Park is in the Adam Yauch Park in Brooklyn, New York. Vehicle parking is only available on the side of the streets in the surrounding neighborhood. This dog run is a small area enclosed by head-high chain-link fencing. It is also partially bordered with tiered concrete seating. The off-leash area has been completely surfaced with deep gravel.
There are tall trees outside of the perimeter fence but these offer very little shade. The dog run is very open to the elements and pet owners using the facility should be aware the gravel can get hot on sunny days. It can also become flooded after heavy rainfall. Smaller dogs may find the surface difficult to walk on. There is no separate section cordoned off for small dogs. There is a staging area and dogs must be kept on their leashes until safely inside. Brooklyn authorities require dog leashes to be no longer than six feet in length.
All owners using the facility must ensure their dog is correctly licensed according to the New York state laws. They should also have their dog's vaccinations, including rabies, up to date. All dogs must wear the corresponding tags on their collars or the owner must carry certificated proof on their person. Violation of the dog run regulations can result in a citation. It is not permitted for dogs to chase squirrels or birds while in the off-leash area so owners are required to have good voice control over their dog.
There is a functioning water fountain installed in the dog run. Poop bags are not provided on-site so owners must provide their own supply. Owners are obliged to clean up all fecal matter produced by their dogs and dispose of it in the containers provided. Doing so ensures the park is kept clean for all users.
