>Dogs in Parks: Town Hall - Brooklyn and Staten Island
Saturday, April 21, 2018
10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.
Join NYC Parks and representatives from volunteer dog groups across NYC to learn more about dogs in parks! Come hear more about the current state of our dog runs, learn community engagement strategies for your local park, and share your opinions about a range of topics important to City dog owners.
The program will begin at 10:00 a.m. and is expected to last until 1:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
While we love our four-legged friends, this event is dog-free.
We are hosting separate forums in Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and The Bronx. Participants from Staten Island are encouraged to attend the event in Brooklyn on April 21. Please visit Dogs in Parks: Town Hall for a full listing of dates and locations.
Directions to Prospect Park
Know Before You Go
Raccoons in Prospect Park have tested positive for canine distemper virus. Although the virus cannot be transmitted to humans, it may be transmitted to dogs. Keep your pets safe in the park.
Please avoid wildlife and make sure your pets have up-to-date distemper and rabies vaccines. We strongly recommend keeping your pet on a leash, especially during dawn and dusk.
Please call 311 or notify an on-site Parks employee if you see a sick or injured animal.
If you are bitten, wash the wound with soap and water immediately. Call your doctor to see if you need tetanus or rabies shots, and call 311 to report the bite.
The Health Department will continue to monitor this condition.
