Dog Parks Open In Jersey City

Dog parks were shut for a while during quarantine, but luckily parks are now opening their dog runs and our furry friends can run around and get fresh air at a local dog park. We have created a list of all the parks open/opening in Jersey City.

Lincoln Park Dog Run

Located in Lincon Park: W Park Dr and Lakeview Dr

Dogs love a big open space to run around and go crazy in. Lincoln Park Dog Run allows your pet to feel like they’re running free in the wild. Since the park has routine maintenance you don’t have to worry about your dog finding anything dirty to get in to. Small dogs have their own area to prevent accidental injury from larger playful pups. Best of all, the park is the perfect match for dog parks and dog-friendly places in and around Jersey City. Feel free to contact (201) 9150-1388 for more information.

Hamilton Park Dog Run

Roughly bounded by Brunswick, Grove, 6th, and 9th Streets

Hamilton Park is made just for dogs to socialize and have a good time while their human companions wish they could join in. There are designated areas for the dogs to be off the leash. If your pup weighs twenty-five pounds or less, they are allowed to use the small dog area. For larger breeds, they have their own space as well. Call (201) 915-4303 for park information.

Van Vorst Park Dog Run

Enjoy the day with your pup and see them smiling at Van Vorst Park’s dog run. The grounds are well kept so you know that your dog will stay safe. Big dogs and little dogs have their own areas to play with other four-legged friends of the same size.  Reach out to (201) 547-4449 for more info.
