Dog Walking in Athol

Athol is a small town in the north-central part of Massachusetts that was incorporated nearly 300 years. With different mills and large companies popping up in the 1800s, the town gained the nickname "Tool Town". Nowadays, this quiet area is surrounded by the dense forests that make up the state that offer plenty of opportunities for hiking, swimming, and other recreational activities. Most of the parks in the city are dog-friendly, and there are even 2 veterinarians for any medical needs.

Silver Lake Park is a hidden jewel for most residents and dog lovers of the town, with over 30 acres of land that surrounds Silver Lake. The park itself has multiple features, like on-shore fishing spots, baseball diamonds, open areas, pavilions, picnic centers, and swimming areas. Dogs have to remain on a leash inside the park, and can even swim in the lake, but are not allowed on the beach. Additional features include water fountains, benches, trash bins, and clean-up stations.

The Bearsden Conservation Area is in the northern part of the city, and is the best place to get away. Protected by the city, the area has intact natural areas and wildlife, with over 10 miles of trails that span over the 1,000-acre area. Dogs are not required to be on a leash, despite the area not being fenced-in, and can enjoy things like trash bins, benches, hiking trails, and picnic areas.

For beautiful small town living, and gorgeous nature to explore, head to Athol with your pup!
