|The Union Square Dog Run is a friendly and safe outdoor haven for dogs and their owners at 15th Street and Union Square West in downtown New York City. Union Square Park fortunately provides a layout that dedicates a tree-lined and sunny play space for dogs. The Dog Run was designed and is maintained by a volunteer-directed community organization - Friends of Union Square Dog Run. This website is the online home of this organization, and the Union Square Dog Run itself.
Dogs and their owners from The Gramercy Park, Flatiron, Union Square, East Village and Greenwich Village neighborhoods congregate in the dog run every day of the year. Dog ownership automatically qualifies as membership in the organization. We do ask regular users of the run to make a voluntary contribution of labor and/or funds towards maintenance.
The Friends of Union Square Dog Run relies upon the donations and work contributed by volunteers for all of our work and improvements. Even the smallest gift of time or money makes a world of difference
