New Tribeca Dog Run | thepupdiary.com

This past weekend’s beautiful fall weather gave us the pawfect opportunity to check out the brand new Tribeca Small Dog Run at Pier 26 in Hudson River Park. The run, situated near the river, had a nice breeze coming off of the water, a doggy sprinkler area for play, and doggy drinking fountains. It also had a price tag of over $4 million!

The dog run is open 7 days a week from 6 am to 1 am. At 3 pm on a nice Saturday afternoon, there were only 3 other small pups in the run with us. The large dog run next door (for pups over 23 lbs) had a bigger crowd.

Best of all, the development of this area of Hudson River Park now gives us a longer and very beautiful walkway along the water. After our visit to the dog run, we walked north along the water all the way to Riverside Park on the Upper West Side. We’ll be back for sure!

We love Hudson River Park!  (Yes, there are several “no dog” signs in the beautiful green areas, but we understand they want to maintain the lawns, gardens, and shrubs.)  The walking and biking paths extend from Lower Manhattan up to 57th Street where the park turns into Riverside Park.  There are 3 enclosed dog runs, many dog-friendly seasonal cafes, beautiful sunset views, and plenty of other gorgeous scenery.  

Hudson River Park's Flower Contest

Hudson River Park’s Flower Contest

This past weekend we noticed several signs promoting the park’s official flower contest.  The Park community is asked to vote for the flower they think is best suited to be the official park flower.  On April 22nd, they will announce the winner.  (Vote here.)  We vote for the Daylily.  We actually thought they were Daffodils.  In any case, they look like the sun and brighten the park.  They are very pretty!

The Frying Pan and PD O’Hurley’s are great places to stop for a (dog-friendly) bite to eat along the way.  Watch out for rats at PD O’Hurley’s!  They like to romp under the outdoor cafe flooring!
