Description: Carl Schurz Park is a 14.9 acre public park in the Yorkville neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. The dog run is in the center of the park, which can be accessed by ascending the stone steps off of E. 87th St. The fully fenced-in run features fine-gravel ground cover, a watering area with hoses, bench seating, poop-bag dispensers, and waste bins.

dustyreviewREVIEW BY DUSTY BLUE: This was a very clean dog run and one of the few to feature fine-gravel as the ground cover, which I prefer over cedar chips. There were no trees for me to sniff and pee on, which is a “pet” peeve of mine. But they did have kind of an unusual feature… a stack of rocks in the center for dogs who like to dig around things.
