New England is a beautiful place for a walk with your pet, particularly during the spring and fall when the leaves on the trees around you are budding or falling. Check the weather before you go out as Massachusetts weather changes drastically. Winters bring heavy snow and freezing temperatures not ideal for a walk while summers bring sweltering days when the sidewalks might be too hot for puppy paws.
Belmont Center is accessible from the Belmont Center commuter rail station. Leonard Avenue hosts most of the retail and dining options in the area. If you're interested in history, stroll down Pleasant Street, a designated historic district with big beautiful homes. You'll also find the town hall and library. Take a moment to stop and admire their historic architecture. Belmont's pretty architecture and boutique shops give you and your pet a place to explore and admire while out and about.
Southeast of Belmont Center is Clay Pit Pond Park, a sprawling greenway set around a large pond. Follow the trail around the water and enjoy the surrounding grass and trees. Next door is Underwood Playground as well as several athletic facilities and fields if you're interested in watching a neighborhood game. If you want to explore the woods, head west of Belmont to Beaver Brook North Reservation. Hike along miles of trails through natural foliage, or try to spot some wild animals!
