The famous Central Park is almost synonymous with New York City, frequented by residents and visitors alike. Dogs are allowed in many parts of the park, which even features a monument to the brave Alaskan sled dogs of the 1920s. Better yet, in all of the areas where dogs are allowed, they can go off-leash from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. There's nothing like the off-leash wag!
