Try out your dog’s agility capability on the obstacle course.
Fluff up that fur after a romp through the agility course, or before going on stage to participate in the games!
Frolic is an innovative and fun experience that provides learning and entertainment opportunities for children by collaborating with dogs. A Frolic dog will be on site with a trainer to demonstrate the right way to approach a dog and to show off a few tricks.
Hound Hydration Station
A water break for your furry friend.
Park Paws-itivity, Pooch Plinko, and Paws Scavenger Hunt
Win prizes at the Woof Wheel and Pooch Plinko games. Kids can join a scavenger hunt and use investigative skills while learning fun facts about Central Park. Do you and your dog regularly visit one area of the Park? Check in at the Paws booth for a chance to win a special prize for your area’s dog community.
This event is hosted by Central Park Paws, a program of the Conservancy, that encourages dog owners to become stewards of the Park and serves as the connector between the dog community, the Park, and the Conservancy.
