How to find us:  Look for LI-DOG’s Blue Tent!

Crisp fall air, pumpkin spice, apple cider, and Halloween costumes—celebrate all the fun of autumn with Fido during Dog-Friendly Days at Old Westbury Gardens, Sat. and Sun., Oct. 23rd and 24th.

Enjoy the Gardens with your fur baby all weekend long from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Then, on Sunday, Oct. 24th, join LI-DOG for an LI-DOG Pack Walk™—a group on-leash dog walk–through the grounds of this beautiful 200-acre estate. Our Oct. Pack WalkTM  will allow you and your dog to explore the woodland trails, lakeside grounds, and beautiful lawns of this magnificent estate. It will take about 45 minutes and is almost all on flat ground. There are opportunities to shorten the walk as well.

Please be at our table by 11 a.m. on Sunday to sign in for the Pack Walk. Registrants for our Pack Walk will have the opportunity to donate $5 or $10 to LI-DOG for a chance to win a raffle basket generously donated by Earth Bath and Glo-marr Pet Products. Proceeds from the raffle support LI-DOG’s work to open local parks and beaches to our four-legged family members.

Please 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.

Once again, Old Westbury Gardens is inviting doggie vendors, rescue groups, and animal advocacy organizations to set up booths that weekend. LI-DOG will set up on Sunday, the 24th. Also, on Sunday there’ll be a big costume contest and parade starting at 3 p.m. (You must register by 2:30pm to join the parade).

While visiting the gardens, dogs must be on-leash at all times, please no RETRACTABLE leashes, and they are not allowed in any buildings on the grounds. Please also keep them from walking on the flowers.

Tickets to gain admission to Old Westbury Gardens must be purchased IN ADVANCE from OWG’s website. No tickets will be sold at the admissions booth. Tickets are good from arrival time until closing time.

OWG admission fees are $14 for adults; $12 for seniors (over 62) and students with valid ID, and $8 for children ages 7-17. OWG members, children 6 and under, and four-legged visitors are FREE.

Old Westbury Garden members do NOT need to buy advance tickets. They need to simply present their valid membership card to the admissions staff.
