Dog Areas in Amherst, NH

3 Eateries

Amherst is a quaint community of about 11,000 in southern New Hampshire. Tucked away in Hillsborough County, Amherst is just an hour from Boston and forty minutes from Concord — New Hampshire's capital. This prime location makes Amherst close to many pup-friendly amenities for you and Fido to enjoy!

Just twenty minutes southeast of Amherst is Mine Falls Park. This gorgeous, wooded park is over 300 acres and is beloved for its many trails and its proximity to the city. Even better, the gorgeous Nashua River runs right through it, so the park includes both forest and wetlands. You and your best furry friend are bound to have a wonderful time at this beautiful nature area — just be sure to keep Fido on a leash!

Just twenty miles northeast is another beautiful nature area: Livingston Park. Known for the mile-long loop around its pond, Livingston Park is a great place to take your pup for a leashed walk. This park offers complimentary doggie bags, ample trash bins, and public restrooms.

If you're not in the mood for a walk, try one of several pup-friendly restaurants in Amherst; The Black Forest Cafe & Bakery and PastAmore are two of the most popular, and both restaurants offer pup-friendly outdoor seating.

    #1 Federal Hill

    Just seven miles south of Amherst is a small community called Monson Center -- a colonial neighborhood. This beautiful natural area can be found where Hollis and Milford meet, and it's beloved for its clean, well-marked (and pup-friendly) trails. Humans will love the stonework and colonial architecture while pups will love the large open fields. Although this 1700s neighborhood is sometimes described as a "ghost town," it's by no means spooky; families and their furry friends are more than welcome, and there's a pond, a visitor's center, and lots of wildlife at any time of year. Pack up Fido and head down the road for a fun and historical experience!

    #2 Brook Road

    Just four miles from city center, the Joe English Reservation can be found. This trail system is maintained by the Amherst Conservation Commission, and thankfully, pups are more than welcome to join you on its many trails either leashed or under voice command. The conservation's eastern section has eight trails and the western section has five, so there are countless options to choose from. Some of the trails are only a third of a mile while others are nearly a mile and a half, too, so there are distances to match whatever you and Fido are in the mood for. Don't forget to bring water and waste baggies!

    #3 West Bedford


    Just fifteen minutes north of Amherst is West Bedford, New Hampshire. This community, hence the name, can be found west of the town of Bedford and is home to two parks. Benedictine Park is nearly thirty acres of open field that's open to winter sports, hiking, picnicking, and -- of course -- dog walking. Two of its trails (Perimeter Trail and Cobb Trail) are both under a mile, making them a great distance for a walk with Fido. Less than a mile southwest is Muller Park which, like the Benedictine Park, is maintained by Bedford Parks and Recreation. The two parks actually connect, and trash cans are available at both for quick cleanup.

    #4 Naticook Brook

    The Merrimack Dog Park is three-quarters of an acre in size and can be found inside Wasserman Park in neighboring Merrimack, New Hampshire -- just seven miles east of Amherst. Dogs are welcome to run around unleashed as long as they're wearing their current license and vaccination tags. This park is free to use, so take advantage -- just be sure to bring water for Fido as there is none on-site. After your fun day at the park, consider stopping by Pizzico. This pup-friendly Italian restaurant welcomes dogs on its outdoor patio, and it can be found just seven minutes northeast from the Merrimack Dog Park.

    #5 South End

    Just twenty minutes southeast of Amherst is South Nashua. This area is home to lots of fun activities, but your pup would most enjoy the Nashua Heritage Rail-Trail. This 1.3-mile trail is smooth and covered with asphalt, making it a relatively easy and short walk (which is great for older pups who can't quite move like they used to). The trail is open to biking, walking, and even skiing, so it's available to use for a variety of activities year-round. If you're in the mood for a longer walk, there are connections to both Mine Falls Park and the Nashua River Rail-Trail.
