Just a few miles away from Woodrow, you and your pup will want to check out Wolfe's Pond Park located at 420 Cornelia Avenue in Staten Island. Be sure your dog is leashed while inside the park and always be a good paw parent and clean up after your pup. This is more than a park - it is also known as a wildlife and plant preserve. There are many walking trails, but be sure to share the road with fellow walkers and runners. Your dog is allowed to be off-leash only inside the designated off-leash areas of the park. Wolfe's Pond also has a beach - your pup is permitted on the sand only from October through May, but your leashed pup is welcome to walk by your side on the boardwalk and promenade.
