The beautiful Newbridge Road Dog Park celebrated its opening in September 2016 and is the first dog friendly area in a Town of Hempstead park.  Its 14,025 square feet of play area (divided to give separate space for large and small dogs) is securely fenced and has paw-friendly synthetic turf for ground cover. Appropriately sized agility equipment within each section, including ramps, hurdles, and hoops, ensures activity and fun for all. Picnic tables, with umbrellas, and benches provide ample seating area for all the human companions and water fountains are available for both people and pups. Hours are daily, 8AM to dusk.

Hempstead Supervisor Anthony Santino Announces Newbridge Road Dog Park

The Town of Hempstead is getting its first dog park! On May 5th, 2016, Hempstead Town Supervisor Anthony Santino announced that a new dog park is underway at the south end of Newbridge Road Park in Bellmore. The announcement follows a commitment made by candidate Santino in Oct. 2015 to LI-DOG in which he stated that he was a strong advocate for animals and would work to create a dog park for Hempstead residents and their dogs. (Read Santino’s Oct. 2015 statement.) The new dog park represents the first time dogs will be allowed in a Town of Hempstead park!

Amenities at this new 14,025-sq-ft park will be welcomed by both canines and their human companions. Dogs will enjoy a large, fenced-in area surfaced with paw-friendly synthetic turf and furnished with ramps, weave poles and hurdles. Their families will have picnic tables, benches, a shaded area and water fountains as well. To ensure a relaxed and safe experience for everyone, the park will be separated into large and small dog areas and surrounded by a secure, 6-ft. high chain link fence.

Construction is now underway and the dog park is expected to be up and running by late August 2016.
