It's Curbed New Orleans' first ever Outdoors Week and we're sniffing out the best place in town to take your pooch to play. Nominate your favorite dog park, dog run, or plain old dog-friendly park by shooting an email our way with a description of what makes it great and why your dog loves it. Do send photos as well and your canine bestie could make the pages of Curbed NOLA. We'll be sharing parks and pics through the rest of the week with voting kicking off on Friday.
The February opening of a portion of Crescent Park brought this off-leash dog run to the canine park scene. The closest entrance to the fenced-off dog area is the parking lot near the Mazant Street ramp, but a few tipsters say they prefer to give their large dogs the stairs workout and take the Piety Street Arch to the dog run. All of the Crescent Park dog run comments we've received so far mention the grassy park's cleanliness and some have made it their go-to spot because there are usually a "nice number of dogs but it's not overwhelming."
Do you have photos of your dog at the Crescent Park dog run that you'd like to share? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll add them to this post.
