Description

When NYC people and their pets need a beautiful green space to stroll through, they head over to Central Park. Jam packed with iconic landmarks like Sheep Meadow, Central Park Zoo, and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, this park is one happening place! 

One of the best ways to see the massive park is to explore the puptacular network of trails. All in all, there are 58 miles of trails that weave through the pawperty. Many of the pathways intersect, so it’s easy to create a route that suits your dog’s athletic ability. Some are paved and are shared with joggers and cyclists, while others are natural surfaced and venture into the remote areas of the park. The longest pawssible loop clocks in at just over six miles. Be aware that there are some running tracks that do not allow dogs.

Even with millions of visitors each year, Central Park has some secluded spots where you and your pupster can enjoy nature. If your pal is looking for a genuine outdoor experience, head over to the North Woods. Located in the park’s northwestern quadrant, this area is forested and a furrific spot to unwind. Since there is a decent sized slope, some of the unpaved trails have an incline that will get your dog’s heart rate pumping. The Ramble is another natural area. Located in the southern part of the park, it consists of several trails that wind through thick vegetation. It’s known locally as a pawsome birdwatching locale.

Since this is an incredibly pupular park, it’s super impawtant that you pick up after your pooch. Always have a clean up bag on hand and ready to go. Also, your pup will be most appreciative if you bring plenty of cold water.

Hitting the Central Park Trails is a pawsome way to spend some time with your furry BFF!
