On the corner of Mill Street and Trapelo Road is the Beaver Brooke Reservation, a dog park that is not fenced in, and the rule is that dogs must be leashed at all times for safety reasons. With that being said, however, the park’s atmosphere is laid-back, so some people don’t follow the leash rule. Beaver Brooke Reservation has ponds, trails, and a breathtaking waterfall.

If you peer behind the old metropolitan state hospital admissions building on Metropolitan Parkway, you'll come across a gem of dog parks: Waltham Dog Ranch. Waltham Dog Ranch is completely fenced in and has two separated areas – one for dogs weighing 30 pounds and less, and one for dogs weighing more than 30 pounds. Water bowls and waste bags are provided, and there’s agility equipment for your dog to play and train on.

Are you and Fido ready for a hiking adventure? Then you need to head over to Prospect Hill Park. This beautiful wooded area is nestled in the middle of Waltham’s industrial parks, so you’ll hear a faint rumble of traffic, but this park is worth it. Prospect Hill Park’s trail takes about an hour to explore, and you can choose if your dog is leashed or not. You and your pooch will have fun while getting a good workout in, no doubt!

Eastview Park in Waltham is a sprawling neighborhood compared to many of the city’s micro-niches. Much of the space is taken up by Beaver Brook Reservation, one of the largest parks in the area. The area is multi-use and features miles of hiking trails winding through the reservation and along the namesake Beaver Brook. Strictly speaking, this is an on-leash park, but be aware that locals frequently bend the rules, and the park is notorious for off-leash play. On leash attractions for dogs include abundant birds and squirrels that they can believe they would totally catch if they were free.

Waltham City Dog Ranch is the main dog park in the city that opened to much acclaim. Local humans give it two thumbs up, and local dogs ten out of ten sniffs. It has water bowls, benches, separate areas for large and small dogs, and agility obstacles. It’s a great way to give your dog a workout without hitting a hiking trail. Confusingly, Waltham’s Beaver Brook Station and surrounding neighborhood is next to Beaver Brook Reservation, but not within the same area. Beaver Brook Station/Clementis Station runs east and south of the reservation, in a less densely populated but highly commutable area.

Days on the town aren’t just for humans anymore. When you’re ready for your dog to see and be seen, head to one of Riverview’s dog-friendly restaurants. You can stop at Paisano Restaurant for Guatemalan and Mexican food on the patio. Taqueria Mexico also serves pups at their outdoor tables. If you’re in more a peckish mood, or you’re looking for a menu with something simple for your pup as well, Lizzy’s Ice Cream is the place to pick. Patio seating and some dog-friendly recipes make this a perfect treat for both of you.

Some dogs want to be like trains and make tracks. Before the awful humor gives you paws, consider: for some dogs, even a long time in an off-leash park won’t work off their energy. If your pooch is a marathoner, not a sprinter, dig out your walking shoes and head to Chester Brook Corridor. This area is a mish-mash of public and private lands, but with the installation of a well-marked trail in 2016, it’s become more accessible than ever. Alternatively, Shady’s Pond Conservation Area offers several miles of winding trails through mature woods, a stream, and even marshes.

Though the Cambridge Reservoir that provides drinking water for the Cambridge area extends from Waltham’s Lakeview neighborhood into the Hastings neighborhood in Weston, the reservoir can still be claimed as one of the best recreational areas for dogs in Waltham. Park in one of several lots on the Waltham side of the reservoir and head out to the ferns, marshes, and walking trails that line the area. Dogs should be kept on leash for the best experience, as the area is full of wildlife and lacks fences. Plan your route, as the reservoir is too large to be walked in one loop.
