How to find us: Meet us at the Gazebo next to the parking lot!

Please join LI-DOG for our September Pack Walk™ at Edgewood Oak Brush Plains Preserve in Deer Park! Edgewood Oak Brush Plains is a state-owned, 843-acre nature preserve situated within the towns of Babylon, Huntington and Islip. It was the site of the former Edgewood State Hospital.

The trails and paths in the preserve are ideal for hiking, biking, jogging, birding and, of course, dog walking! Old Commack Road, a concrete 1.6- mile road that runs north-south, is now part of the preserve’s trail network. There are also many nice flat, pine needle-covered trails that are great for dog walking.

Parking at the preserve is limited, so we are limiting this Pack Walk to 50 people.

We’ll gather for our LI-DOG Pack Walk™ —a guided group on-leash dog walk–at the gazebo near the parking lot. We’ll begin our walk at the Main Entrance and head into the park from there.

The walk will cover about two miles and take a little over an hour.

PLEASE NOTE: While there may be off-leash dogs on the trails, dogs attending the LI-DOG Pack Walk™ must be kept on leash at all times. Please don’t forget to bring poop bags as pick up is a must, and while the trail is shaded by trees, don’t forget to bring water for you and your pup.

Please NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES as we are walking in a group and the dogs and their humans can get tangled.

To RSVP go to:

LI-DOG on Meetup

Please note: All RSVPs must be done on the LI-DOG Meetup Group so we can keep track of the number of attendees. As space is limited, please keep your RSVP up-to-date so that people who are wait-listed get the opportunity to join us.

Weather-Related Changes: Please check our Meetup and/or Facebook Group or our website on Sun. morning around 9am for any weather-related notices. If there is no notice, the Pack-Walk is on!

We look forward to seeing you and your dogs for our September LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Edgewood Oak Brush Plains Preserve!

Please Note: The date for this LI-DOG Pack Walk on the magnets we handed out previously with the 2022 Pack Walk schedule is incorrect. The correct date for our Sands Point Preserve Pack Walk is Sunday, June 26th.

LI-DOG is pleased to announce that we will be hosting our next LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at beautiful 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 the LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Sands Point Preserve on Sun., June 26th 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 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.

Please join us after the Pack Walk 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. Sands Point has generously waived the fee to reserve the tables for LI-DOG!

Also, your pup can enjoy making new friends at the dog run.

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!
