Lawrence is a working-class city in Massachusetts with a rich history. It was incorporated by a group of industrialists in 1847 as a mill town, and went on to play a central role in the textile industry and the early-twentieth-century labor movement. Factories and urban landscapes aren't all there is to Lawrence, though. This industrial center has an excellent park system and is rich in green spaces to enjoy with your pup. It also has two veterinary clinics to meet your dog's medical needs.
One of the best spots in Lawrence to explore with a canine companion is Den Rock Park. Designated as a city park in 1896, this 120-acre tract is a haven for wildlife. Its deep woods are home to deer, fox, beaver, and several species of raptors and songbirds. Den Rock Park is especially well known for its views of the Shawsheen River and its granite cliff face, which attracts rock climbing enthusiasts from miles around. You and your dog will be most appreciative of the extensive trail network that gives you several routes through the park. Return visits and deep exploration are rewarding in this peaceful place. Leashed dogs are welcome and you will need to bring your own waste bags and water.
In the words of Robert Frost, who grew up in Lawrence, your time exploring the city's parks with your canine companion will leave you "stirred to be the one so dog-preferred."
