How to find us: Meet us by the dog run at the north end of the big parking lot!

LI-DOG is pleased to announce that we will be hosting our next LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at beautiful, dog-friendly Sands Point Preserve, the 216-acre former estate of the Guggenheim family! Our Pack-Walks – guided, group on-leash dog walks – are a great way for both you and your dog to socialize, while enjoying some of Long Island’s most beautiful parks!

Please join us for our LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Sands Point Preserve on Sat., June 17th starting at 11 AM. (Please arrive 15 minutes early, so we can start the walk on time.) The Preserve features multiple hiking trails on 200 acres of woods, beautiful lawns, a pond, fields and great views of the Long Island Sound! Please be aware that some of the trails may be a bit steep at times and may have roots and rocks.

We anticipate that the Pack Walk™ will take about an hour, but there will be opportunities to make the walk shorter for those who wish to do so.

After the Pack Walk™, please join us for a bring-your-own picnic lunch! We have reserved the picnic tables, which are shaded, on the great lawn in front of beautiful Hempstead House. Once again, Sands Point Preserve has generously waived the fee to reserve the picnic tables for LI-DOG and our guests!

Both before and after our Pack Walk™, your pup can also enjoy making new friends at Charlie’s Run, the Sands Point dog run located just north of the big parking lot. The dog run is divided into two areas–one for dogs less than 25 pounds and the other area for all dogs. Dogs must be accompanied by their owners at all times.

Please Note:

  • Dogs are not allowed on the beach nor in any of the buildings, the Rose Garden or playground.
  • Dogs must remain leashed AT ALL TIMES!
  • Please do not use Flexi Leads as we’ll be walking in groups and people and dogs can get tangled.
  • Also, please bring plenty of water for your dog and poop bags – as clean-up is a must!

Admission Fee: $15 per car, $4 per walk-in. Sands Point Conservancy members are FREE. A pay station at the Gatehouse enables contactless payment of the admission fee with credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and cash. If paying by cash, please bring exact change. This fee helps support this beautiful dog-friendly property!
