Please join LI-DOG for our final Pack WalkTM of the 2017 season at beautiful Alley Pond Park, just over the Nassau border in Queens. This 655-acre park features miles of trails, ponds, meadows and woods. Our Alley Pond Park LI-DOG Pack WalkTM —a guided group on-leash dog walk–will start on the White Trail just east of the Parking Lot next to Baseball Field 12. We’ll then turn west onto the Orange Trail so we can walk our dogs by two pretty freshwater ponds and continue north, before heading back south again through the woods, so we make a big loop. (To see a map of the trails in Alley Pond Park, go to Alley Pond Park Trail Map.) The walk will take 45 minutes to an hour and other than one medium-sized hill is almost all on flat ground. The trail varies between asphalt and dirt.

If you’ve never been to Alley Pond Park, this is a great opportunity to get a good introduction to the park guided by an LI-DOG Pack Leader who knows the park well. If you already know Alley Pond Park, this is your chance to enjoy the park with your dog and other dog lovers and their pups!

LI-DOG’s Barkin’ Beach Meetup II

Sat., Aug. 26th, 10AM – Noon

Mud Creek Off-Leash Beach

341 Roe Ave., Patchogue, NY (Google Map)

In response to requests by several dog owners–and their pups!–we will hold another Beach Meetup at Mud Creek County Park on Sat., Aug. 26th from 10 a.m. until Noon!

Spend some time at the beach with Fido and the great folks of LI-DOG for some summer fun. Join us at Mud Creek Dog Park in East Patchogue for a couple of hours letting our furry friends frolic in the sand and surf of the Great South Bay! There’ll be plenty of exercise to be had running along the coastline as Mud Creek is an off-leash dog beach. Complimentary snacks and water will be provided for humans and dogs. Bring your own towel and beach chairs!

A clean-up of the Mud Creek Off-Leash Beach will start at 8:30 a.m., so if you and your fur baby would like a little extra time in the sun, please join us in getting the area ready for our event.

Please note: Mud Creek is a natural borders dog park, which means it is not fenced. For everyone’s safety, please only bring dogs that are well-socialized—used to playing with other dogs off-leash—and that will reliably come when called. Please NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES.

Mud Creek has no amenities and is considered “carry-in, carry-out” (i.e. no trash receptacles, no poop bag stations, no bathrooms and no water fountains). LI-DOG will have extra water and poop bags on hand, but please help us make the event a success by remembering to bring these items.

Parking is on the street and there is a narrow path to the water.

We hope to see you and your dogs on Saturday, August 26th at the beach!

THERE IS NO RAINDATE FOR THIS EVENT!
