105th Street Dog Run

Posted by on Feb 29, 2016 in Other, Parks, Pets

The 105th Street Dog Run is where I usually take Frankie.  This is really a beautiful and picturesque part of Riverside Park.  It’s open all year long and I’ve met many new friends here.  The run is always well stocked with plastic bags, water, and boasts lots of open space with separate runs for big and small dogs.  In the summer months, I’ll often go to the Ellington on the Park which is lovely outdoor bar, with umbrellas, great cocktails and sometimes live music (on the lower level).
