Central Park is THE place to go for dogs!

I bring Orion to the park every morning. There is a brochure available online at the Central Park Paws website that includes a map of dog-friendly areas in the park. Off-leash hours are 9pm-9am. We generally go over by the Great Lawn, and there are hundreds of dogs throughout the park every morning! You can sit outside at the Loeb Boathouse or Kerbs Boathouse and have a cup of coffee with your canine companion. There is the occasional squabble between dogs (or owners!) but for the most part, the dogs all get along great! It's wonderful to see all the different kinds of dogs that use the park, and learn their "gotcha" stories. The park does not provide pick up bags, but if you find yourself stuck there is always someone willing to give you one. I have made many new friends (and even reconnected with a couple of old friends) since I started bringing Orion as a pup, and so has he!
