From 7am to 9am daily, you can take your dog(s) to the Upper Alley Pond Park Picnic Field #12 (off Winchester Blvd) and let your dogs run without a leash. There are always plenty of other dogs and friendly pet owners, as well as a dog's club you can join at the Alley Pond Park Dog Run

The Queens County Bird Club consists of people who are participants in the second largest hobby in the United States.  Although birding is the first and prime interest of this friendly group, ecology and related matters that concern our area are also matters that are discussed at their monthly meetings.  Meetings take place at the Alley Pond Environmental Center (APEC), which is located at 228-06 Northern Boulevard, Douglaston, NY 11362.  The meetings are held at 8:00 PM on the  third Wednesday of each month. Guests are invited to attend meetings and bird walks and both are free of charge.  More information about this club can be obtained by emailing Ian at This email address is being protected from spambots.
