West Fens is a part of the Fenway neighborhood that sits west of Back Bay Fens, the marshy park that the surrounding area is duly named after. West Fens is an up and coming community and is a favorite spot for tourists, university students, and families alike. Your pet will enjoy exploring this area as there are many entertainment options. The community is a mix of residential buildings, shopping and dining, and a variety of bars. While there aren't any pet stores in West Fens, a large big box store just south of Fenway Park sells pet supplies and food. West Fens is also where you'll find Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. 

The climate in Boston varies with the seasons with very snowy winters and sweltering summers when hot sidewalks could damage puppy paws. Check the weather before you go out as there is a chance you could be caught in a snow storm!

West Fens is a mainly flat neighborhood with a hill here or there, making it a good neighborhood for a leisurely walk. The area is fairly small at a little more than a half-mile long and is easily navigable. Boylston Street and Brookline Avenue are where you'll find most of the shopping and dining options and Landsdowne Street is where most of the nightlife is at. Stick to the area below Boylston Street if you're more interested in exploring the residential spaces. 

As Fenway was named after a parkland, there's no question there's plenty of greenery around the area. There are many trees and grassy spots outside apartment buildings as well as parks throughout the neighborhood. The streets around Fenway Park have the least green space and can become very crowded with tourists and university students during baseball season and weekend afternoons or nights. The best time to walk near Fenway is in the morning.

There are so many beautiful parks to explore in West Fens. The entire southern border of the neighborhood is the Back Bay Fens greenway which features plenty of different gardens and parks that are welcome to people and their pets on a leash. The park is a part of the Emerald Necklace, a city-wide project to preserve Boston's greenery by creating a chain of parks. The Fenway Garden Society is a 7-acre garden that features different flowers and gardens. If you like roses, head to the James P. Kelleher Rose Garden where you'll find numerous rose bushes, fountains, and beautiful arches for you to see on your daily outing.

Justine Mee Liff Park is a traditional park on the Emerald Necklace featuring grassy spaces and shady spots to sit and relax. Instead of exploring the Emerald Necklace, you can also check out Ramler Park, a small park dedicated to creating a sanctuary for migrating birds.
