Newtown is a small town that has been around for over 300 years. Over those years, the town has had many accomplishments, like being the birthplace of the game Scrabble. Unlike Scrabble, the town doesn't play games when taking care of its four-legged residents, providing 4 veterinarians, numerous parks, and gorgeous landscapes to hike through.
The Park and Bark area is the dog-friendly gem of Newtown, providing 2 acres of enclosed space for off-leash play. The park also features a year-round agility course, dog pool, paw-wash, and separate areas for smaller pups. Additional features include mutt-mitts, dog bowls and water fountains, covered pavilion, and benches.
The Upper Paugussett State Forest is one of the largest dog-friendly areas in the city, with over 800 acres of land along the Housatonic River. The dense forests provide shade and privacy while going on for an afternoon's walk along the 5.6-mile trail system, with views of the river and natural wildlife. Dogs must remain on a leash here, but have access to features like water fountains and benches.
Adventures with your pup are limitless in Newtown, and will leave you and Fido feeling exercised after each walk.
