Things to Do with Dogs
Prospect Park is a haven for dogs, offering acres of green space for special off-leash hours (6 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. We also offer the Kensington Dog Run at the Prospect Park Parade Ground. Connect with other Prospect Park dog owners through FIDO, which hosts events throughout the year.
