Boston definitely experiences all four seasons including summer, fall, winter, and spring so you will want to check the daily forecast before heading out with your pup for a walk. The summers can be particularly humid while the winters are cold, wet, and can often see heavy snowfalls.
Located in the heart of downtown Boston, the Financial District is an urban neighborhood with few greenways or access to natural terrain. What this neighborhood lacks in natural terrain, it more than makes up for it with all of the safe sidewalks! You will want to watch out for your pup's sensitive paw pads during summer days, but the sidewalks will keep you safe from the downtown Boston traffic. Thankfully, though there are a few areas with some gradual inclines, the majority of the neighborhood is flat. This guarantees you and your furry friend are in for a nice, leisurely walk if that's what you are looking for!The boundaries of the Financial District include State Street to the north, John Fitzgerald Surface Road and the Boston Harbor to the east, Summer Street and Essex Street to the south, and Otis Street to the west. Merrimac Street and Pearl Street are other major roadways in the Financial District.
Other greenways include Jenney Plaza, Winthrop Square, Lincoln Street Green, Leather District Park, and Dewey Square Parks. This neighborhood is also located immediately next to the Urban Arboretum, Wharf District Park, and Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park. Unfortunately, there are no off-leash dog parks located in or near the Financial District. The nearest dog park is roughly one mile away in Paul Revere Park and across the Charlestown Bridge. You may want to take a trip over to this area for some off-leash fun.
