Curbed Ponders NYC’s Best Pooch Parks Including Brooklyn Heights’ Hillside Dog Park

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:
