HOBOKEN, NJ - Dog owners can sit and stay awhile at the new Maxwell Park Dog Run, which officially opened last week after several months of renovations.

Upgrades include expanding the area of the dog run, new benches, a dual water fountain, pet waste stations, and new fencing. Maxwell Park's dog run, located adjacent to the boathouse, is the third dog run to be renovated  in Hoboken this year—following upgrades at Stevens Park and Church Square Park.

“I’m very pleased that Hoboken now has a new, modern dog run at Maxwell Park,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “I’m confident that these new features will be well utilized by our dog owners, and I’m thankful to all of the residents who have provided continued feedback to my office. Thank you also to the Maxwell Park Board for funding these improvements.”
