Dog Areas in Prospect, CT

2 Parks

Prospect sits in New Haven County, southwest of Connecticut’s capital, Hartford. It is a small town, and perfect for a quiet getaway with your best mate. It is located at the highest elevation in the county, and is named after the views this provides. There is a veterinary hospital just north of the town centre, should Fido need a little medical help.

Hotchkiss Park offers a local spot to get some fresh air, with a paved walking path and plenty of grass to picnic on. From here, it is an easy walk through downtown to check out the local shops, as well as St Anthony’s Church and the Prospect Town Hall. If you keep heading southeast, you will find McGrath Park with its small lake to wander around, and Canfield Park for some more green space to explore.

If you are hungry in town, stop by Pizzeria Napoletana for some delicious wood-fired Italian fare, or Dunkin Donuts for a quick breakfast, lunch, sweet treat or hot drink.

Although a small town, Prospect has a lot of stories to tell and some great places to explore. There are many other pup-friendly towns close by too, so take some time out and enjoy this part of the world with your four-legged buddy at your side.

To refuel after your big walk, head to Cheshire Coffee, where you can sip your hot cuppa outside in the sunshine with your pooch by your side. For a great meal, check out The Watch Factory Restaurant or Victorian House Restaurant, where pooch can join you at one of the outside tables.
