The small town of Methuen is pinched between the border of New Hampshire and the Merrimack River. Methuen may be small, but it has a lot of history due to being nearly 400 years old, and today has a number of different places on the National Register of Historic Places. Another part of Methuen that hasn't changed over the years is the city's unconditional love for its dogs, and shows it by providing three animal hospitals and lots of public, dog-friendly parks!

The Edward S. Alekel Veterans Memorial Park is the largest park in the city, with acres of woods, open fields, and recreational areas to play in. The dog-friendly park requires pups to be on a leash but also provides dog-friendly fenced-in baseball fields, open spaces, a playground, picnic pavilions, forested trails, water fountains, clean-up stations, and restrooms.

Another scenic destination to take your pup is the Greyhound State Park, a 24-acre hilltop park with rolling green fields, picnic tables, trails, and a historic castle-style mansion from the 1800s. Dog-friendly tours are available, although dogs are not allowed inside the building. Dogs can enjoy features like 2.1 miles of hiking trails and plenty of room to run around and play in, with access to water fountains, clean-up stations, benches, and trash bins.

No matter your reason for being in Methuen, the city will not only take care of your needs, but also your dogs needs as well.
