As part of Curbed’s “Outdoors Week”, they’re looking for the city’s best dog park. Of course our own Hillside Dog Park is up for consideration.
Curbed: Colleagues, friends, and commenters on the internet can’t say enough good things about the dog run at Hillside Park in Brooklyn Heights. This spacious tree-lined dog run—it measures about two acres—feels like it’s tucked into a pocket of woods. The park has a few gentle hills, plenty of grass, and fresh woodchip-covered ground, as well as a few hoses and drinking fountains designed for both pets and owners. There’s a baby pool for pups to cool off, and several benches and picnic tables sit in the shade near a cluster of trees. One Yelp user praises it because it “doesn’t reek of urine,” and has multiple entrances and exits.
Curbed cites this Instagram as a testament to Hillside’s awesomeness:
