Peekskill Dog Park

Managing Real Estate Broker with Howard Hanna Rand Realty License # 49FA1074963

Peekskill, NY now has a wonderful Dog Park! Opened October 31, 2009, the project was started by Peekskill homeowner (and dog owner) Michael Sellers, who devoted a year and a half to getting the city to dedicate unused park land to the project. The park now has a board of directors, a terrific website with plenty of pictures, and 50 visitors a week. It has also made the local news several times, including Journal News coverage of a visit from Santa Claus just 10 days ago (and you thought he just dug reindeer). You can read the story by clicking on the link on the park website.  

To take underused parkland and transform it into a place where people and enjoy themselves and build a community is a special undertaking, but then again, you have to know Mr. Sellers like I know him. I sold him his house in Peekskill 3 years ago. As fortunate as he told me he feels about putting down roots in Peekskill, I say that the city got the better part of the deal when it landed Michael Sellers. Hats off to my client and friend. 

My dog Max would approve!

Max is beautiful. 

I'd never even heard of a dog park until 4 years ago when my daughter went off to college (growing up in the country my animals always had plenty of room to roam and run), but for a city it's such a wonderful idea.

I love your posts about your community. Sounds like a great dog park - and a wonderful dog! Very handsome.

Tammy- you are lucky. We city slickers up here in Noo Yawk don't have the vast expanse you enjoy. 

Lise- Thanks very much. I'm going to get some photos up soon if I can get up there soon. I do love my area. I lived in 7 other cities over the 15 years between college and my return in 2000, and Westchester is close to my heart.
