The Seacaucus Bark Park is a lot of fun for Chewie. Most times, it is pretty empty and he and his friend Joey are the only ones there, the most other dogs that were there besides us were about 3 or 4. The agility equipment includes different sized ramps, bars to jump over, and little tubes to run through. It is spacious, has a fine gravel ground cover instead of wood chips. The parking is a little strange - just park on the street or across the street in some office building's lot. The park is not separated for big and small dogs, but Chewie has never had a problem with any of the big dogs... he has so much fun there and is always really tired when he gets home!

Since moving to Cliffside Park, NJ these are the two closest dog runs for Nigel. Lately we've been going mostly to Overpeck. Both runs have different sections for big and small dogs depending on your little one's play mood! Both parks are also good for long walks as both have nice walking/running grounds -- look out for geese droppings though at Overpeck! Enjoy!

wonderful places for you to take your furry friend they are all fabulous especially the hikes it is fun that you and your puggie Buddie
can enjoy together just in these pass few weeks I have gone on
a two mile hike through lewis morris park , five mile hike
through ringwood state park a, three mile hike trough Harman(Bear Mountain) ,a five mile hike through the Rampoo reserve and it is so much fun!!!!! this weekend we are planing to go to bush kill fall in pa for our one year anniveresy it is definitely worth the trip !!!!! these are just a few of the great place in NY NJ
and PA that you and your furry friend could go and we would always
enjoy to hear more so please break out those back packs and compasses
and those leashes and water bottles and get out there and have some fun with your furry friend !!!!!!! oh and remember most parks after memorial day will charge a small fee for entry in the five to ten dollar range closer to five usually ... so get off
that coach and get out and enjoy the great outdoors with the ones you
love the most and please tell us of your adventures we would love
to hear them!!!!!smile
