Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Dubbed First Run, this East Village off-leash dog area was a pioneer when it opened in 1990. Since undergoing a renovation in 2008, this pet spot features a sandlike surface, a wading pool, picnic tables, tennis balls and lots of room for dogs to ramble, with two separate enclosed spaces for large and small canines. The community-run Friends of the First Run organizes a number of dog-and-owner-friendly events, including a Halloween Dog Parade sponsored by the City Parks Foundation (with prizes awarded for the top costumed pooches).
