Things to Do with Dogs
Prospect Park is a haven for dogs, offering acres of green space for special off-leash hours (5 am–9 am and 9 pm–1 am) at the Long Meadow (except ballfields), Nethermead, Peninsula Meadow and, during those hours, even a place to swim, Dog Beach. Connect with other Prospect Park dog owners through FIDO, which hosts events throughout the year.
Rules and Safety
Off-leash hours are permitted 5 am–9 am and 9 pm–1 am at the Long Meadow (except ballfields), Nethermead and Peninsula. Dogs must be leashed at all other times.
