Yes, dogs should realize how careless and disgusting humans can be. Sewage, broken glass etc. sometimes the humans are more like animals than their canine brothers. Maybe it's time to start leashing up some people?

The BP oil spill released roughly 0.2 billion gallons of oil. Every year NYC releases up to 30 billion gallons of untreated sewer water into our surrounding waters. Disgusting to think people are letting dogs frolic in that filth.

Any dog owner that willingly lets their dogs swim there should be arrested for cruelty to animals. The water there is completely unsanitary and the bottom is full of broken glass.

I think that water is pretty gross and wouldn't let my dog swim there. I also don't let him off leash even though he is "well behaved". My toddler recently got jumped on and knocked down by an off leash dog while the owners simply shrugged and said "he just wanted to say "hi". This wasn't even at MCP - it was on a sidewalk on Washington St.

It's unsafe for a dog to be off leash and when I see it, especially on sidewalks or along the waterfront, I can't help but think how ignorant the owners are.

Also, there's no shortage of places that allow dogs to be offleash. If you're not in one of those places, your dog should be restrained appropriately. It's common courtesy.

i have 3 dogs and dont feel bad for any other dogs or dog owners.

i'm all for dogs having fun but i dont want your dog running up on my leashed dogs. my dogs dont like that and they have every right to be left unmolested while in the park.

Isn't that international water? ;)

Anyway, several years ago, my dog was swimming there (is there a statute of limitation on my confession?) and did cut her leg. No stitches required, but you need to be aware of what is beneath that water. If you take a look a low tide, you can see all sorts of stuff. I think the one beachy area (and high tide) is clearer than other points, so don't just let your dog swim anywhere.

The whole park is overrun by unleashed dogs. I honestly do not feel sorry for the dogs and their owners. If you are at the park, there are tons of people who are too busy chit chatting to notice that their dogs are pooping in the grass. I've pointed out to owners countless times that while they were yimmer yammering with their friends, their unleashed dogs took a dump.

phDOG states the obvious. Letting dogs swim in the river violates leash laws. Every dog owner hears about leash laws ad nauseum, and I can't help thinking that they have become so stringent that today's dogs are basically under house arrest. I grew up in NYC in the 1970's and recall the whole point of having a dog was to be able to bring them to a park, play frisbee with them, throw a stick and take them for a swim in the river. We used to bring our dog to Orchard Beach in the Bronx and my best childhood memories consist of swimming in the Ocean with my dog. A few years go by, a couple of pitbulls somewhere maul an old lady or two, and suddenly dogs are spending their entire lives locked in the house except for a few moments a day when they get to stand leashless in what is called a "dog run", usually a tiny fenced area filled with cat litter or pebbles in the worst part of some park, shadeless under the blazing sun. Since we have progressed into a society that fights tooth and nail to have more and more laws imposed on us in every aspect of our lives, I propose one more: just ban dogs altogether. There is no place left to have fun with them anyway, and think of all the park space it would free up! Until dogs are outlawed outright, there will always be the occasional scofflaw who dares thumb their nose at The Leash Law to risk giving their dog a few moments to enjoy life's most basic pleasures, and we can't possibly have that!

Leash laws apply to this area so if you let your dog swim there, you're in violation.

Walk over to the Morris Canal Park area at the end of Washington on a Saturday morning. You'll see several dogs swimming and owners throwing balls into the river.

There's a small path on the right side of the park before you get down into the narrow stretch, you'll see it.
