I've started bringing my pup here as they have remained open through covid (unlike the NYC City Parks' runs). The park is for big and small dogs/is not divided by dog size, but it is definitely big enough for bigger dogs to get plenty of exercise.
The ground is entirely concrete/a similar material to a basketball court, but there is a nice fountain in one corner that can be filled to create a pool large enough for quite a few dogs. There is a self-cleaning water fountain for the dogs to drink from, and lots of benches both in the shade and in the sun. There are hoses to water down the ground and your dog (if they love water like mine and get super hot anytime it's over 70 degrees).
Basically -- a great park!

Most times during the workday I see people come in with their dogs and use the park as a dog sitter as they can't be bothered with picking up their dogs poop or watch their dogs behavior. I wish cellphones were banned.
Aside from that Washing Square park is filthy, dusty and muddy.
