We are fortunate on Long Island to have a lot of doodle-friendly parks and beaches. Here are some of our favorites. Check with your town for resident only parks too. Make sure that your dog's vaccines are up to date and has taken Heartworm as well as flea and tick medication before venturing out.
There are trails for hiking, lakes, fields and campgrounds. Also, an area where dogs can play off-leash.
The off-leash dog park, located between Boyle Road and Corvair Lane in Selden, is approximately 57,000 square feet, fully fenced and is divided into large dog and small dog areas (25 pounds and under).
Dog must have proof of rabies shot to play. There is a designated dog walk area. Certain breeds are not allowed, but doodles are.
This is a great place to walk your dog on a leash by the water. There are lots of trails to explore. This is one of our favorites!
Dogs are allowed in underdeveloped areas of the park.
The park is located on the water behind the Town Community building. Dogs must be leashed, but can play on the beach. There is a doggie station too. They hold an annual costumed dog parade in October.
After enjoying the great outdoors you and your Doodle can share this refreshing treat.
