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 Sat., June 22nd starting at 11 AM. Sands Point 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'll meet on the big lawn in front of Hempstead House, the former home of the Guggenheim family, where you'll also get great views of massive Castlegould, the carriage house and stables. 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.
Once again this year we will be reserving some of the picnic tables, so bring your lunch. This year we could not reserve the tables on the great lawn, as they were already taken, but have reserved the two tables by the pond. If you have a folding chair, perhaps you could bring that and you and your pooch can join us while we have lunch overlooking the beautiful and peaceful Long Island Sound!
PLEASE NOTE: Dogs are NOT allowed on the beach, nor in the houses and must remain leashed AT ALL TIMES! Please do not bring Flexi Leads as we'll be walking in groups and people and dogs can get tangled. Also, please bring water and poop bags - as clean up is a must.
For more info about Sands Point, go to the Friends of Sands Point Preserve (http://sandspointpreserveconservancy.org/) website. There is an admission charge to Sands Point - $15 per car. Please arrive by 10:30 AM to sign in, so we can begin the walk promptly at 11 AM.
We look forward to seeing you and your dog for LI-DOG's Pack Walk™ at Sands Point Preserve on June 22nd!
