About Us

The Forest Park Barking Lot is a 9,000 square foot dog park located off of Union Turnpike and Park Lane in Queens, NYC. It was established in June 2015 through the collaboration of dedicated community volunteers, New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, and the Partnership for Parks. Volunteers from around the borough continue to advocate for its permanence, fundraise for improvements, support maintenance efforts, and grow community support.  Come visit and share your support!

Ways to Help Your Dog Park


Gifts fund maintenance, events, and operations – sustaining our dog park as we advocate for a permanent structure through NYC Council.


We are a volunteer advocacy group and our activities are 100% volunteer-run. Contact us for opportunities and upcoming events.
