Viaduct Dog Park

Viaduct Dog Park in Hoboken

We’re big fans of dogs. And anytime something “pro-dog” happens, we tend to be supportive of it. Like the recently opened viaduct dog park at 14th & Madison Streets. In the quite possibly least active and most far removed area of Hoboken.

Hardly anyone seems to use it – and despite good lighting, I doubt weaker members of society would want to “risk it” in this area of town – especially at night.

Be that as it may – it’s still a dog park.

This is one of those circumstances where I’d have a lot more respect for builders and city-hall bobble-heads if they DIDN’T hype it up and use it as a political football. There was probably nothing BUT a dog park that would work for this stretch of wasteland near the light rail tracks, so it definitely made sense.

But it will likely see more action in 10 years, when this area of town is wall-to-wall skyscrapers and dry cleaners, so that’s good news!

Access has been blocked by the ice that was never cleared on corners and city owned sidewalks. If you do manage to get there don’t put yourself in harms way by going at the same time that the buses at yard right next store run there motors getting ready for rush hour.

I visit it often, it’s nice, quiet. The one issue is the amount of crap that is not picked up, despite the many bag dispensers. I thought maybe it was a snow issue but in the last week (no snow) it’s gotten worse. And I see this all over the City – who doesn’t pick up after their dog? That’s just rude. And nasty. Nasty, nasty, nasty. [quote comment=”224422″]Access has been blocked by the ice that was never cleared on corners and city owned sidewalks.
