Description
Pelham Bay Dog Park is located within the Pelham Bay Park, which is a large park that borders the water. The park is a fenced-in park with sections for both small dogs and large dogs. The park's ground is primarily dirt, but it is nicely landscaped. There are updated benches on cement for you to sit and rest on, trees for shade, small boulders for your dog to sniff, and it's surrounded by a chain linked fence for security. There are waste bags available in case you forget yours as well as scooper poopers. In the summer, there are puppy pools near the water fountain so your pup can stay cool on those muggy summer days. 

The park is large and may be hard to find. To get to the park, you can enter on near Watt Avenue and Middletown Road and the park is about 100 yards east of the parking lot on Middletown Road. If you want to take your dog for a stroll through the rest of the park, be sure he is on a leash and only goes in designated areas. Dogs are not allowed in or on playgrounds, basketball, handball, tennis courts, ballfields, or fountains. When you are walking around the park, make sure you pick up after your dog and throw it out in one of the garbage pails located throughout the park. 

Per New York City law, your dog must be up to date on his rabies vaccination and wearing his collar with rabies tag and ID. He must be able to listen to your command and you should discourage chasing squirrels or small animals. Aggressive dogs should not visit dog parks. The Pelham Bay Dog Park is fairly popular, and if you're unsure how your dog will behave, take him mid-day when the park has fewer visitors. He can comfortably sniff around and get a feel for the park before interacting with too many other dogs.
