New Dog Park in Suffolk County’s Gardiner Park!

A large, new dog park is under construction at Suffolk County’s popular Gardiner Park in Bay Shore. The dog park is scheduled to open in the spring 2019.  The site for the off-leash area, in the northwest corner of Gardiner Park, has been prepared and in an effort to provide shade during the summer and a more natural setting, many of the existing trees have been left in place, according to Suffolk Parks Commissioner Phil Berdolt.  The dog park will have three sections: a 80′ x 300′ small dog area; a 120′ x 300′ large dog area and a 40′ x 100′ agility training area.  The provision of a agility training area is a first for a Suffolk County dog park, the Parks Commissioner noted. Each of the sections will be completely fenced by 4′ high black vinyl coated chain link fence.  In addition, two watering locations have been installed. The total dog recreation site will cover 64,000 square feet or about one and one-half acres.

The funds for the new dog park come from a $100,000 grant obtained by New York State Sen. Phil Boyle. Former Suffolk Legislator (now NYS Senator) Monica Martinez sponsored the resolution in the Suffolk Legislature to accept the grant and authorize the dog park.

As is the case for all Suffolk County parks, on-leash dog walking will continue to be allowed throughout Gardiner Park.  Some dog owners had been told that on-leash dog walking was at risk as a result of the new dog park. However, in a statement Commissioner Berdolt noted: “This is our most utilized park for patrons and their pets. We will continue to keep this park an on-leash friendly park.”

In order to make sure Gardiner Park works for all park patrons, please keep your dogs leashed unless you are in the dog park itself.  Also, as always, please remember to clean up after your dog.

Join LI-DOG on Sunday, Sept. 24th for one of our popular LI-DOG Pack Walks(TM) – a group on-leash dog walk–in beautiful Blydenburgh County Park in Smithtown!

Blydenburgh is a 627-acre Suffolk County Park that boasts not only a large dog park, but miles of dog-friendly walking trails. The main loop trail around Stump Pond in the center of the park is six miles long, but for our Pack Walk on Sept.  24th, we’ll scope out a shorter, 45 minute or hour-long walk for everyone and their dogs. The trail is mostly flat, dirt or sand, and well-shaded by trees.  Go to Blydenburgh Trail Map for a map of the walk.

Please be aware that there can occasionally be horses on the trail and some off-leash dogs, especially in the more northern sections of the park. In any case, dogs must be kept on leash at all times and, of course, be picked up after. Also, while there is water available in the dog park, you should bring water for you and your dog on the trail.

Meet us on the big field next to the dog park to start our Pack Walk!

Once you’ve passed the entrance gate, follow the signs straight north to the Dog Park. The road will turn into a dirt road several hundred feet before you get to the parking area for the dog park.  Try to arrive 10 – 15 minutes before the walk start time so that you can sign in.

Please note: All dogs must have proof of rabies vaccination (a photo of certificate on your phone will do).
As always, check back here on Meetup on Sat. night or Sun. morning around 9 a.m. for any weather-related changes.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone and their dogs for our LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Blydenburgh Park on Sept. 24th !
