2. Silver Lake Park Dog Run, Staten Island

The Silver Lake Dog Park is located at 700 Victory Road with, you guessed it, a great chance to walk by the lake with Fido afterwards. Pets again have gratuitous amounts of space in a backdrop that seems hardly urban at all.  There are separate areas for small pets and it is the largest dog run in Staten Island. For a small taste of the suburbs, bring your pup to Silver Lake Dog Park.
