Big dogs and little dogs, black and white dogs, all are welcome at Hudson River Park’s brand new dog run in Tribeca which opened its gates to eager canines and owners on August 5.
The dog run, located between Hubert and N. Moore Sts., is made of brightly-painted concrete and asphalt, surrounded by shade trees and umbrellas, and is equipped with paw-activated water fountains for summertime fun.
The pooches (and their people) seemed pretty thrilled opening day as they gamboled through the fountains and made use of the park’s elongated shape to run full out.
It also has a separate area specifically for small dogs under twenty-three pounds, a first for Hudson River Park.
While the park receives most of its funding from New York City and State, Madelyn Wils, the president and C.E.O. of the park’s Trust, thanked Congressmember Jerrold Nadler for securing $4.8 million in additional funding for the Tribeca improvements.
In addition to the dog run, the new esplanade opens a path for joggers and bicyclists to travel from Pier 25 to Pier 40 and the northern sections of the park.
