Chelmsford, named after the town Chelmsford in England, lies 24 miles northwest of Boston in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. It is a lovely spot to bring your pet for a visit if you are in this part of the world, with many forest areas and waterways to take a leisurely stroll or more energetic jog around.

Warren Manning State Park is one of these fantastic green spaces, where your dog is welcome to accompany you on the lead. There is a small daily parking fee here in summer which can be purchased at the park from the attendant. Walking trails are plentiful in this area if you are up for a little exercise, and the family will love the water park, picnic areas and space to play a friendly game of catch or cricket. There are also grills here for cooking up a tasty lunch, and the restrooms are open when the attendant is on site.

For a pup-friendly place to eat, head to Moonstones. This upmarket bistro serves up an eclectic menu of globally-inspired dishes that you need to taste to believe. For something a little more casual, try Jimmy’s Pizza for the restaurant’s namesake, as well as subs, salad, wings or seafood. Gary’s Icecream has homemade frozen treats that will top off your day perfectly. Dogs are welcome to sit by their owners at all of these places at an outdoor table.

There are two veterinary hospitals and one clinic in town, so you can be assured that your pup will stay happy and healthy on his visit. 

Whatever you choose to do, you will both love your stay in Chelmsford!

    Fancy doing something a little different with your pup? Why not take him apple-picking? Hill Orchard in West Chelmsford is a pup-friendly place where you can gather your very own fresh apples in the fall season. You dog will love wandering along the rows of trees, helping you seek out the ripest, juiciest, most delicious apples around. There is nothing better than fruit straight off the tree! If you are there at the right time, you may even get a hayride with Farmer Dave. Your furry helper will need to stay on the lead, and make sure you take some clean up bags with you. What a pup-tastic way to spend a few hours together!
