HOBOKEN - Tails will be wagging Saturday morning in Hoboken, as dog parks citywide reopen for "business."
The canine corrals were closed amid COVID concerns in March, and very good boys and girls around the Mile Square City have been begging for a place to play. The newly reopened dog runs will require facemasks for entry and social distancing once inside the pen (that's for the owners... the dogs can do their own thing).
City personnel will reportedly be on hand to enforce the social distancing, face mask and capacity limits:
- Church Square Park (Large Dog Run Capacity: 20 people, Small Dog Run Capacity: 10 people)
- Elysian Park (Dog Run Capacity: 15 people)
- Harborside Park (Dog Run Capacity: 15 people)
- Hudson Street (Large Dog Run Capacity:10 people, Small Dog Run Capacity: 5 people)
- Stevens Park (Dog Run Capacity: 15 people)
- Southwest Park (Dog Run Capacity: 10 people)
- 14th Street Viaduct (Dog Run Capacity: 10 people. NOTE: The Viaduct Dog Park will be closed when the adjacent COVID-19 testing center is open to the public, 8 AM-4 PM Monday - Friday and 8 AM- 12 PM Saturday)
- Maxwell Park (East Dog Run Capacity: 5 people, West Dog Run Capacity: 5 people)
