Dog Park, Croton-on-Hudson
Village officials have given permission to let residents
bring unleashed dogs to Black Rock Park, a small recreational
area off Quaker Bridge Road. The new policy would be
on a trial basis, and it is expected that a more fully
developed "dog park" will open someday at
a new park under construction along the Hudson River.
The village is constructing another park called Croton
Landing along the Hudson River. The administration is
looking to create a permanent dog park there in the
future, which eventually would end the permission to
take dogs to Black Rock Park.
