Newton, one of Boston's oldest suburbs, has a fancy nickname: “The Garden City”. That's because it features lots of beautiful green spaces to explore with Fido! If you're more of a history buff than a nature lover, you'll be happy to know that Newton is also home to some interesting historical sites. Getting veterinary help in Newton is easier than you may think. Four clinics cater to the canines in the area, although you'll find plenty more closer to downtown Boston.

Soule Recreation Center is the closest dog-friendly open space to Newton. Located in Chestnut Hill, this park is a great spot for active pooches to run, play and exercise, but make sure you keep on eye on your pup! The vast terrain isn't fenced, so if you've got a runner, be sure to keep them on a leash. This facility provides plenty of shade and grass, but no drinking water stations for pets or humans, so be sure to bring your own water.

Chestnut Hill Reservoir is a dog-friendly public park that provides convenient, easy access to the water, plenty of walking trails, shaded spots, and places to enjoy a picnic with your furry friend! Pooches must be leashed at all times here.
