Tompkins Square Dog Run

Alphabet City • NYC

Welcome to Tompkins Square Dog Run. We are New York City's first and largest dog run located in NYC's Tompkins Square Park. We use this site to share ideas, offer suggestions, coordinate clean-ups and talk about our dogs.

The dogs are back. We're open for business...and splashing, and fetching and everything else!

The renovated run features a state-of-the-art surface that drains well, is dust-free, and best of all is paw-friendly so the dogs love to run on it.

There are 3 swimming pools for the dogs to make a splash or jump in for a quick cool off.
