If you’re a pet owner, you likely take your furry children’s needs into consideration as much as your own when considering comfort and accessibility factors in your home.
But when big, open spaces to run aren’t a feature of your home, many people turn to local dog parks for their pooch’s exercise needs. In Bergen County, there are several local dog parks and dog runs that allow residents to give dogs the space they need to play.
So if you’re planning to stay in your current home for a long time or are in the market for a new place and have dogs to consider, the following information will give you some insight into which dog parks are near your potential residence.
Samuel Nelkin County Park
Nestled in a hillside of Wallington, the 17-acre Samuel Nelkin County Park offers dog owners a relaxing retreat for playtime. Large and small dogs have separate play areas as a safeguard. Other park features include two tennis courts, baseball and softball fields, fishing areas, and sledding.
