7. Hillside Dog Park and Run, Brooklyn

The Hillside Dog Park and Run, located at Middagh Street, Vine Street and Columbia Heights is 2 acres, giving ample room for your pooch to run around. Interestingly enough, the park was created in 2000 from leftover land donated by the city in after the completion of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway in the 1940s. The park is cut into a hill (as its name might suggest) and contains many trees and even wood chips that were recycled from Christmas trees. It is opened 24 hours everyday, ensuring that you and your dog can access this woodsy haven whenever you want.
