How to Find Us: Look for the blue LI-DOG tent

PLEASE NOTE: Because of the rain this morning, we are delaying the start of our LI-DOG Pack Walk at Old Westbury Gardens until 1 PM Saturday.

One of our favorite Pack Walk/Events of the season is back this April 20th when Old Westbury Gardens opens the grounds of this beautiful estate to people with dogs for their Spring Dog Festival!

Starting at 11 a.m. on the 20th, please join us for an LI-DOG Pack Walk™ as we spend an hour on a guided walk of the beautiful, English-themed splendor of Old Westbury Gardens. There’ll be plenty of spring’s flowering treasures for our eyes and our fur babies’ noses to enjoy!

Our walk is almost all on flat ground and there are opportunities to shorten the walk for those who wish to do so. Make sure to bring poop bags–as clean-up is a must! — and bring your camera as there are many beautiful photo opportunities on the grounds.

Our LI-DOG Pack Walk™ takes place during Old Westbury Gardens’ Spring Dog Festival. Make sure to stick around after the Pack Walk and enjoy the festival with booths and exhibits from rescues, animal advocacy organizations including LI-DOG, and vendors of doggie goodies and gear. The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the 20th.

On Sunday, the 21st, Old Westbury Gardens welcomes pups again as part of their Dog-Friendly Weekend with the same hours as Saturday, but no vendors will be present.

Please make sure to register for our LI-DOG Pack Walk™—it’s free! Just look for our blue tent to sign in. Registrants for the Pack Walk will have the opportunity to donate to LI-DOG for a chance to win a raffle basket full of doggie toys and treats. Proceeds support LI-DOG’s work to gain more access to public parks and beaches for Long Island dog owners and their dogs.

Dogs must be on-leash at all times when visiting the Gardens and are not allowed in any buildings on the grounds. Please no retractable leashes when on the Pack Walk as the dogs may become entangled.

Dogs are NOT allowed in the Walled Garden and please do not let them trample the beautiful daffodils.

Except for Old Westbury Gardens members and library pass holders, all entrance tickets to the Gardens must be purchased in advance through their website. OWG members simply need to show their membership card upon arrival.
