Due to COVID-19, our annual social fundraiser will be held virtually with a frozen treat making class. Reserve your spot by making a donation today! Can't attend the class? We will have dog friendly frozen treats for purchase.
We are starting to reorganize and want to hear from you! Please take a moment to fill out this short survey. We promise it won't take long!
Responsive to ongoing overcrowding and in effort to manage social distancing, Mayor Bill de Blasio has ordered all of the City's dog runs/parks closed until further notice.
Please pass word to any dog run users and allies that Freeway Dog Park will be closed for the time-being. We are hopeful that the COVID situation will resolve soon, and NYC will be able to reopen the dog parks! In the meantime, other parks remain open, and off-leash and pooper-scooper rules are in effect.
NYPD and Parks Enforcement Patrol are out in parks ensuring New Yorkers follow social distancing guidelines.
Please check NYC Parks website for changes to service and closures (nyc.gov/parks)
Thanks for working with us, and all of your neighbors, to keep everyone safe as we battle this virus! We will continue to work with Parks to provide updates when available.
We got confirmation that the tree planting in the dog run will take place Tuesday and Wednesday, January 7 and 8, weather permitting. Due to the workers and machinery present and the holes in the ground, the run will need to be closed when they are working, from 7am-330pm each day. Parks will post signs. Please spread the word.
