Cat Rock Park may sound like a bit of a misnomer, but make no mistake -- this place is for canines, not cats! This park is located in Weston's Hastings neighborhood, around 15 miles away from Marlborough. Your pet will be so excited to play at this off-leash park that you will have to come back more than once! What makes this park so great is the wooded trails and the pond where your pooch can swim. There is a lot of open space for exercise; just be aware that this park is not fenced! You'll need to bring your own waste bags, because none are provided at the park.
