The park is one of the pilot parks by the Suffolk County Parks Department and is bare bones, meaning it does not have the typical amenities of dog parks. Like most of Long Island, the piece of land the park is on is flat, so there are no hills to climb, and the ground is a combination of grassy areas and dirt filled areas. There are some trees in the park, but shade seems to be mostly provided by the tables and chairs set out for the humans. In an area where open space is hard to find, it is great to have a no-cost, big open space for your pup to run around.
Just be sure to bring your own bags and be a good neighbor and bring some to share. Don't forget the treats or the water, too. Some visitors even suggest bringing your own chairs, as the supply is limited. Unfortunately, the park does not offer bathrooms for owners. Keep your dog on-leash until you enter the park, where he will be greeted by furry friends. To get to the park, take Montauk Highway to Horseblock Road and turn left (east) onto 80. You can park your car on the north side of the park in a dirt and gravel parking lot.
