Neighborly and close to nature, Norwood, MA has a lot to recommend it. This friendly and family-oriented suburb is both close to Boston and only 35 minutes from Providence, RI. It’s hard not to be charmed by this small city -- as if the picturesque historic downtown wasn’t enough, the town is surrounded by lakes and bordered by a stretch of the Neponset River. There are also plenty of trails in the area, many of which are ideal for fur-friendly hiking! There are two veterinary clinics in Norwood to take care of your buddy, with emergency services available right in town.
Norwood doesn’t have its own dog park, but that doesn’t mean that you and your pooch can’t get some exercise! The town boasts several pawesome community parks. Francis William Bird Park is a lovely spot for a leashed walk. Right on the border of Norwood and Walpole, this park boasts over 89 acres of green space. Visit in the summer, and you and your pooch might be able to catch an open air movie showing! There aren’t any doggy dining options in town, but don’t worry -- you and your pooch will find plenty of places to chow down, as well as off-leash adventure options, just a short drive away!
