|Mom used to take me to this dog park in Linden. It's right behind the airport, it's called Veteran's Memorial Park. Here's a link to it's location if you're curious: http://maps.yahoo.com/;_ylc=X3oDMTExNmIycG51BF9TAzI3MTYxNDkEc2VjA2Zw LWJ1dHRvbgRzbGsDbGluaw--#mvt=m&q1=linden%20airport&trf=0&lon=-74.239 619&lat=40.616738&mag=3
What's nice is that it has it's own parking lot, it's part of a complex-2 baseball fields and a small playground, so it can get kind of full. What's also nice is that it's BIIIIIG!!! Maybe I'll get mom to take me there this weekend so she can take pictures to show you all. It's got benches for the humans to sit, two inactive fire hydrants (silly, but cute) a dual water fountain for us pups and our humans, , poop bags (though usually they're not in the dispenser, sometimes they're just stuck on the fence lol) waste disposal and trash cans right outside the fence. What's not nice, and this can be my personal opinion, but there's hardly ever anyone there Now it's not bad when you just want to do some zoomies in a larger area but it can get pretty boring when you NEVER have anyone to play with when you go. We still go there sometimes, like mom took me there last weekend to work on my recall because...well, there was noone there! The area is just grass so you can imagine how messy it can get when the ground gets wet...the ground by the entrance gates gets particularly muddy just fyi.
We've started going to this other park in Jersey City that my mom heard about. It's located inside Van Vorst Park: http://maps.yahoo.com/;_ylc=X3oDMTExNmIycG51BF9TAzI3MTYxNDkEc2VjA2Zw LWJ1dHRvbgRzbGsDbGluaw--#mvt=m&q1=montgomery%20st%20and%20barrow%20s t%20jersey%20city%20nj&trf=0&lon=-74.046205&lat=40.718107&mag=1
Thi s one is alot smaller but it's still plenty spacious. This one is split 60/40 to seperate the small dogs from the larger ones. The larger side has a bench to sit but both sides have doggie water fountains. The ground is made of gravel so it's not too bad. The great thing about this park is that plenty of dogs come through there. It does have it's peak times like around 7pm and mom has taken me out because it was too overwhelming, but usually it's a resonable amount of dogs.
Sorry for the length but I tried to be detailed...it'd be nice to see some of you around
