Now a neighborhood of Boston, Roxbury is a dissolved municipality located in Massachusetts. For those of us not familiar with government zoning jargon, here’s what that means. Although Roxbury was originally considered a unique city with its own governing bodies, in 1868, it was officially turned over to the city of Boston. This was a smart move for the city, considering this gave its residents access to all the benefits of Boston.

Residents can still get those benefits today! If you’re out and about looking for things to do with your canine companion, the heart of Boston is just a hop, skip, and a jump away! There are numerous restaurants where your pup can dine with you, and there’s also a nice selection of dog parks. If you’re looking for the perfect vet for your dog, you have many different options to choose from; pet owners only want the best for their fur baby, so it’s important to find a vet that works best for your family. There’s also an emergency vet clinic nearby, which is open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Although the city is now a neighborhood, it certainly hasn’t downsized. Make sure to swing by!

The nearby Griggs Park, located in Brookline, is only about three miles away from Roxbury, and it’s certainly worth the trip. Although it isn’t technically a dog park, Griggs Park does allow for your dog to have some fun off his leash from dawn until one o’clock in the afternoon. This means that your dog will have plenty of room to run around and get in his daily exercise! Because this isn’t a dog park, though, you’ll definitely want to bring your own water and waste disposal bags. Griggs Park also attracts many different kinds of people, including children, so make sure your dog is friendly to everyone!

Boston’s Allston neighborhood, located about twenty minutes from Roxbury, is home to Mansfield Street Dog Park. Locals claim that although this dog park is on the smaller side, there’s still plenty of room for your pooch to run around and play a nice game of tag with other dogs, or fetch with you! Knowing that rain is frequent, it was decided that this dog park would use pebbles instead of grass, so if you and your furry friend aren’t afraid of a little bit of water, don’t let a rainy day keep you from playing!

Less than five miles from Roxbury is Cambridge’s Cambridgeport neighborhood, and if the beautiful location isn’t enough to draw you there, maybe Pacific Street Dog Park will do the trick! This fenced-in dog park allows your dog to have some fun off his leash. Bring along Fido’s favorite toy, but make sure he’s willing to share it with his new canine friends. Locals warn that Pacific Street Dog Park does tend to flood when it rains, so keep that in mind before you go. You’ll want to bring along your own water and waste disposal bags.
