Description: Riverside Park stretches four miles from 72nd to 158th Streets along the Hudson River. Since 1875, the landscapes of Frederick Law Olmsted have offered escape from the city and for residents and visitors to play and socialize in its tranquil settings. Located just off of 105th Street and Riverside Avenue is the 105th Street Dog Run. The run is operated by the Riverside Park Conservancy, which is a non-profit whose volunteers keep the dog park as clean and safe as possible. It features two sections to separate large and small dogs with gravel and dirt ground cover. There is a watering area where hoses reach both large and small dog sections, bench seating, and there are poop bags, cleaning equipment and waste bins available.
REVIEW BY DUSTY BLUE: I really like the dog runs along Riverside Park, but this one is pretty basic. It’s pretty much a large open, gravel & dirt area with seating on the sides for people. There is nothing in the middle… it’s like a bull ring for a bull fight! However, I really liked the very nice dogs and people here. Everyone was very friendly, but I wouldn’t want to come here when it’s raining. I’d track all kinds of muck with my feet.
