Theodore Roosevelt Park, located at 200 Central Park West, New York which is four minutes from your Sagamore apartment, is a park surrounding the American Museum of Natural History that has paths, grassy areas and a dog run.

Since 1990, the dog run has been a boon to the community. It is one of the largest dog runs in New York City’s parks. The renovation of the park included the relocation of the dog run, improvement of the drainage and irrigation systems, the renovation of the lawn and paths, and the addition of new benches and fencing. The dog run, once called Teddy’s Dog Run, was renamed Bull Moose Dog Run after Roosevelt’s Progressive Party.

Riverside Park South, located at Riverside Blvd, New York which is 10 minutes from your Sagamore apartment, is a sunset-facing green space along the river offering walking paths, grassy areas and outdoor events.
