The Secaucus Dog Park was relocated to its current location in 2011. There is no division between large and small dogs so pet parents must be ever vigilant in watching out for their furbabies and ensuring that nothing wrong happens to them. Tiny and timid dogs can easily get trampled upon and injured when playing with much larger dogs.
The park itself is in the Mill Creek Point Park on the Hackensack River where it spills into the Mill Creek. It has an environmentally preserved area which features park benches for a tranquil setting for reflection with Spike beside you, fishing, a boat launch, and various nature-themed play areas for tiny tots to enjoy themselves.
There are swings and climbing features, and the Secaucus Dog Park at Mill Creek Point Park is also the start of the Secaucus nature walk which runs along the perimeter of the west end of town. The fenced in dog park has plenty of space for dogs to run around and numerous obstacles such as a dog house, tunnel, and ramp, so your four-legged best friend can have plenty of exercises.
There is a fountain, but sometimes it does not work, so it is best to pack a water bottle for you and your pooch. Although there is no official big dog and small dog distinction, there is a large pen made up mostly of pebbles and a smaller pen which mostly has dirt and grass. The view by the water is pretty, and you can take your dog for a walk on the boardwalk.
There are no dog scooper bags available in the Secaucus Dog Park at Mill Creek Point Park so pet parents must bring some and pick up after their dogs. Dog waste is a common complaint of people who visit the park. Unfortunately, it seems that not all pet parents are responsible enough in ensuring the cleanliness of the park but do not let this stop you from picking up after your pooch.
