The central-north part of the old Robinson Duck Farm in the hamlet of Brookhaven is home to the county’s newest dog run park on 2.6 acres of open meadows, Suffolk officials announced Monday. It is the second natural borders dog park in Suffolk, meaning the perimeter is lined with vegitation or water to keep canines from escaping. The dog run is open year round to the public.
Those who use the park are expected to bring their own bags and to remove from the site any waste and garbage they may have generated there. Dog owners are asked to carry and supply potable water for their dogs and for themselves when entering the park.
The dog park is the county’s fourth county-owned dog park. The other natural borders dog park is on Roe Avenue in East Patchogue and the two standard, fenced dog parks are in Blydenburgh County Park and West Hills County Park.
