The area of Clinton was settled in 1654, but wasn't incorporated until 1850. The incorporation of the town was brought upon thanks to the major textile factories going up in the area, giving the town enough leverage to separate from this mother-town. Enriched in culture and history, Clinton today has a beautiful downtown area and lots of outdoor space, used for city events and daily dog walkers.
The most common of places to walk Fido is the Philbin Memorial Park, thanks to its central location and different amenities for everyone. There is open space, a paved walking trail, a basketball court, a playground, shaded sitting areas, and picnic tables. Pups must remain on a leash inside the park, and have access to water fountains, benches, and trash bins.
Savage Field is on the northeast side of the town and offers a safe place to run around with Fido, thanks to the two fenced-in baseball fields that allow dogs. There's open space, picnic tables, and benches in the park available to leashed pups.
The Clinton Floodplain Area is a wooded area along the Nashua River and has some great trails and open fields for picnics when the water goes down. The area is dog-friendly and does not require dogs to be on a leash, although you will have to remember to bring water to this park!
Clinton has 3 dedicated animal hospitals, a dog-friendly walkable downtown, and a love for their four-legged residents that has been around for hundreds of years. Come by and visit today!
