What the neighborhood lacks in retail spaces it makes up for in places to explore with your pup. The neighborhood is large with many winding streets past beautiful single-family homes and expansive parks. You'll find that the quiet streets offer a relaxing escape from other bustling downtown areas. From waterfront trails to college campuses, there's plenty of space for your pup to romp around in Newton Corner.
There are parks and greenways all around Newton Corner. Boston College's Newton campus, located in the southwestern part of the neighborhood, is a great spot to watch some tennis or meet some students on the greenway. If you're sticking around the northern part of Newton Corner, be cautious around the exit and entrance ramps of the turnpike, as those roadways tend to be very busy and congested.
Newton's Off-Leash Recreation Program allows pet owners to let their dogs run free in certain areas of the city's parks. Several parks have designated off-leash areas during certain hours of the day. Hunnewell Park in Newton Corner allows leash-free pets in a fenced area from dawn to dusk while Cabot Park, which borders the western part of the neighborhood, also features a fenced area for some frolicking.
