A visitor or a resident with a pup will feel welcomed and safe in Summit. There are two veterinary clinics in town for routine care. For exercise and fun, there are nine parks within the city limits. Some green space for a leashed pup and person to experience is never far away.
Soldiers Memorial Field, with its walking paths along the Passaic River, is one spot you won't want to miss. Martin's Brook Park is a small park that will reinvigorate both person and pup with a nice stroll on its walking path along the brook shaded by foliage. Oakwood Park offers still more leashed outdoor exercise along the river. Briant Park Pond is a must-visit, too. Briant has a 1.1-mile walking path through large shade trees for you and your leashed dog to enjoy. Briant has many open green areas, a pond, and well-placed benches for those little breaks.
