Highland Park is a community located south of Boston’s central business district, about a 15-minute commute from the downtown area. The community is home to Roxbury College and there are several local shops, eateries, and services in the area that can be reached on foot. 


When strolling the neighborhood with your dog, Boston's climate can throw a lot of variable weather at you, so be prepared with the right outerwear. Although summers are mostly warm with some cool breezes off the ocean, occasional humid weather occurs which may require you to choose to walk at different times of the day. Rainy days are frequent in this coastal location and rain gear will be a must to stay dry. Winters are cold and snowy and you will want to bundle up to stay warm. Thunderstorms are also frequent occurrences in warmer months and can pose a hazard to pets. Take shelter when storms are imminent.

Highland Park is bordered by Columbus Avenue on the west, Malcolm X Boulevard on the north, Washington Street on the east, and Richie Street on the south. The region is mostly residential with a few commercial businesses located within its boundaries. 


 Residences in the area consist of multi-story townhouses, duplexes, and low rise apartment buildings as well as detached homes. Many houses in the area exhibit historic architecture and have unique and interesting features. Streets are narrow and heavily treed with closely set buildings and properties. This makes for shady streetscapes. Sidewalks are prevalent in the area so you and your dog don't have to share the road with traffic. 


Highland Park is situated on elevated ground above the surrounding neighborhoods and there are some hills in the community, although inclines are not usually steep. A college, local school grounds, and many small parks in the area provide local green spaces.
