See Beautiful-Prospect Park Dogs

Over our end of summer break we went to Brooklyn's Prospect Park to check out their famous dog beach and dog friendly green spaces.  Even though we lived in Brooklyn years ago and the hounds Grand Dad still lives in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn we had never been to the park.   It is not a traditional "dog park" in fact their is a leash law in effect from 9 am to 9 pm but it seems that it is not enforced.  The result, since this is a large green space transformed into a doggie paradise.  I didn't see a single unpicked up poo or dog fight.  We brought only our three pugs since Bob and Norbert can be somewhat unpredictable with off leash dogs.  I also kept Weasley leashed since I'm not 100% confident of his recall.  I think its the fact that ever single dog guardian I saw in the park seemed to know the dog and respectful of other people's dogs that keeps this place so wonderful.  Of course I can only speak from one visit but the idyllic sight of all those happy dogs and happy humans  was definitely one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen, unfortunately my phone pictures don't do it justice, and I can't wait to course back.  Of course Tubby, Ping, and Weasley loved it too.

After we we played in the park we visited the delicious Pie Shop Four and Twenty Black Birds. 

 They have the best pie and I love this sign they have hanging outside their shop.
 If like me you are a fan of the TV show Twin Peaks, you may remember this is a reference to a famous line from that show.  


  1. Great looking park and we love the pie shop. What a great way to end a lark in the park. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. I'm wishing to visit that park. I wish there was an area like that here! I would share a photo of our dog park but it would be too depressing. We don't even go anymore. And the humans don't behave well there either. I agree with Molly, the pie shop just put the outing over the top of happiness.

  3. What a great day out, you always choose the best places to go!

  4. Great park and the fact that so many people and dogs are having fun there tells us that your area should have more like it.

  7. What a beautiful park! So glad to hear that everyone is well-behaved and keeps the park clean and beautiful. For a place that's not technically meant to be a dog park, it's a pretty awesome dog park! ;)
    Looks like someone was trying to see a different kind of beautiful in the 6th pic down. :)
    Woohoo! A Twin Peaks reference! Loved/still love Twin Peaks!!
    Happy Seeing Beautiful!

  8. Fantastic park. There sure are a lot of peeps...we pups outnumber the pups at the river. If peeps pick up poo and stuff, then that's probably why the rules are bent a little.

    We usually have about 9 to 15 dogs at the river and never a fight.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
