Are you asking yourself “Where are the dog parks in Jersey City?” Because there’s nothing better than the look of pure bliss in your dog’s eyes after walking and/or running along a tranquil trail. Warm weather is right around the corner which means it’s time to take your pup to the best dog parks in Jersey City that accommodate all breeds of dogs. With loads of running, socializing, and interacting, your dog is guaranteed a great day (along with a long nap when they get home)! Here are four on-leash/off-leash dog-friendly parks in Jersey City for a promised day filled with fun:
1) Van Vorst Park
Location: 257-287 Montgomery St, Jersey City, NJ 07302
What’s better than having your dog romp and play off-lease in a friendly and well-taken care of park? I say nothing! Designed to separate areas for large and small dogs, Van Vorst may be smaller than many but is profoundly well- known. With a gated-fence enveloping the park, there’s no need to worry about losing your pup. Features like shade trees, a private area for small dogs to play without getting intimidated by the big pups, and sit-down benches makes the park one of the best in the area. If you haven’t tried this location, what are you waiting for? It’s calling your dog’s name!
2) Lincoln Park
Location: Jersey City, NJ 07304
Covering 273 acres of land, you can say that Lincoln Park is a tad bit huge. But no worries, this large but well-maintained, off-leash dog park ensures that your dog has the walk/run of their life! With two entrance double gates, it’s a breeze to get in and out of the park. Clean with all sorts of amenities such as water fountains, plastic bags to scoop up your dog’s waste, shade trees, and plenty of tennis balls to play catch with your dog, Lincoln Park is one of the very best dog parks in Hudson County. Oh, and don’t worry– there’s a separate area for the little pups. Fun fact: it even has its own fire hydrant (so you know where your dog will be when they need to take a little break)!
3) Liberty State Park
Location: 200 Morris Pensin Drive, Jersey City, NJ 07305
If your dog’s never been to this incredibly vast location with a fairly large number of vendors, activities, and beautiful views, they’re in for a treat! This park (which covers over 1200 acres!!!) is an open-area where one can acquire all the space they need for their little one. Leased or unleashed, your dog will be able to have their fair share of freedom and fun they’ve always dreamed of having. With plenty of walkways, bike ways, and fields upon fields, your dog (and definitely you) will never get tired of this location.
4) Hamilton Park
Location: Between 8th Street and Hamilton Place and McWilliams Place, Jersey City, NJ
This park is smaller than most parks but do not be fooled by it’s size as this location is WOW. Your four-legged baby will most definitely adore this park with its features including a playground, tennis court[s], farmer’s market, and more! Including two dog runs– one for small dogs and the other for large dogs– this park is also clean with countless benches to sit on and friendly individuals and dogs. A free-service park with countless pros? Yes, please!
