The city of Fitchburg is a countryside city on the north side of Massachusetts, 45 miles west of Boston. Rolling hills, thick forests, and a river pass through the metropolitan city. Thanks to its large amount of nature preserves and natural areas outside of the city, the town makes for a great place to get out and enjoy a nice walk. Most of the places to get out for a walk are dog-friendly, and there are even four veterinarians right in town.
The most popular park in the city is Coggshall Park, a 212-acre area that surrounds Mirror Lake, and offers miles of wooded trails, walking paths, open spaces, and recreational fields. There's two ballfields, tennis courts, a picnic area, a gazebo on the water, a dog-friendly beach to the lake, places for fishing, a playground, and a bird sanctuary. The park requires for pups to be on a leash inside the park, but have clean-up stations, water fountains, and benches available.
Another great park to head to with your pup is Parkhill Park, a wooded area with open space and trails to enjoy with Fido. The park has forested trails, fenced-in baseball fields, enclosed tennis courts, a playground, open space to run around in, and paved walking trails connecting the area. You and Fido can even find some other great features like water fountains, clean-up stations, nighttime lights, trash bins, and benches.
Whether you're visiting the town for its great outdoor activities, or a resident just going for a short walk with Fido, Fitchburg provides plenty of places just for your pup.
