LI-DOG Pack WalkTM at Alley Pond Park

(Google Map)

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 Pack Walk™ at Blydenburgh Park
Sun., Sept. 24th, 10 AM
Blydenburgh County Park
Veterans Memorial Hwy., Smithtown, NY (Google Map)




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.
