*Woof!* I'm Joshua and I just said 'Hello!' in dog speak. I've been told I'm a good human and often get wet nose kisses in recognition of a job well done.

Dog Walking in Newington

Newington is a mainly residential area and an old suburb of Hartford located in Greater Hartford, Connecticut. The Waterfall Festivals, an annual autumn celebration hosted at Mill Pond Falls, is one of the favorite and the most pawpular attractions in the city. You will also find a few decent recreation areas and parks, some convenience stores and pet-friendly eateries in the downtown area, as well as three veterinary clinics to seek advice or medical help.

While you're here, it is very likely that you will find yourself in Mill Pond Park, located in the very heart of Newington, welcoming thousands of visitors annually, especially during the autumn festival. Centered on the pond, the park features a huge green area split into multiple sections for sports and outdoor activities. There are also plenty of walking trails to explore with your leashed pup.

However, for true off-leash fun, you will have to travel to Wethersfield, northeast of Newington and home to Wethersfield Dog Park. The park is fully fenced, has two separate areas for timid and active mutts, and is full of shaded spots and drinking water facilities for your pup’s comfort.

The Martins neighborhood, in the southern part of Manchester, is a large area with sleepy residential quarters, shaded public parks, and a few historic spots. Manchester Dog Park can be easily found not far from I-384, adjacent to Mount Nebo Park. The parks are separated by Charter Oak Greenway, the finishing point of a 14-mile trail stretching all the way from Bushnell Park in Hartford to Manchester. The dog park is fully fenced and may seem a bit smaller than you would expect a dog park to be. However, there aren't many visitors here, which is a plus for timid dogs! There's also plenty of room to romp and run off-leash.
