West Lynn is a lovely little neighborhood quite a ways northeast of Boston. It is bordered by Lynn to the east and Saugus to the west. The expansive Lynn Woods lies to the north and the beautiful Rumney Marsh reservation is to the south. West Lynn is an entirely residential neighborhood. The Julia F. Callahan School has its campus and residence halls between the neighborhood and the Lynn Woods. There are a few small businesses along Boston Street north of West Lynn. You can get training for your dog at Cave Canis Dog Training which sits near the border of the forest. For grooming, you will have to go either west to Dapper Dog or east to Poochie's Dog Grooming.
With all of the beautiful natural areas to explore around West Lynn, you will never run out of gorgeous natural spaces to explore. Even your high-energy dog will be tired out without having to retrace their steps.
West Lynn is a quaint little neighborhood with charming and often historic wood frame homes that tend to be on the smaller side but offer lots of beautiful architectural details like front porches, chimneys, and peaked roofs. There is a sidewalk on both sides of the road with no divider but with the relatively low traffic of the neighborhood, you will still feel confident walking your dog on a loose leash. These homes tend to have a lot of character and also offer landscaping and lovely, tall, mature trees, making this a delightful neighborhood to stroll through with your pup.
You can head either north or south to find more extensive exploration and challenging terrain. The Lynn Woods cover many acres with natural forest and are surrounded by a network of lakes, all of which have natural shorelines that are a perfect place to introduce your dog to the water.
If you head north to the Lynn Woods, you will find acres of wild forest with well-maintained trails winding through the tall trees. Paths are paved, for the most part, so you can even enjoy being on wheels down these miles of forest paths. There are lakes around and cutting through most of this forest so you can also enjoy exploring the natural shoreline and getting a chance to see all kinds of wildlife here.
If you head south from West Lynn, you will make your way to the Rumney Marsh area. A river runs up from the marshes all the way to the border, so you can follow the river most of the way down to the marshes. Once you get there, you will find miles of beautiful exploration that is especially great to explore in a canoe or kayak. You can also get to the beach from here where you can enjoy the sand and sea.
