This quaint neighborhood is paved with concrete sidewalks and black asphalt roadways. The terrain varies, so you'll want to plan your route according to your level of experience. Flatter terrain may be better for older pups while hills may suit more adventurous owners. 


Surrounding those areas, you will find many historic buildings that have stood since the town's founding in the 1800s, sprawling farmland, and newly built homes and businesses. According to the census, the town is comprised of 87.6 total square miles, with only .50 square miles being water. Those waterways include watersheds, tributaries to the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers, and Schoharie Creek. If you head to the Main Street District with your leashed pup, you will see many buildings that are on the National Register of Historic Places like the First Old School Baptist Church, the Jay Gould Memorial Church, Vega Cemetery, Walter Stratton House, and Ulster and Delaware Railroad Depot and Mill Complex.

Kirkside Park is the place to be for people and pups of all ages! This 14-acre wooded piece of paradise was once owned by the town founder's daughter, Helen Gould. It started as a beautiful seven-room farmhouse and expanded into what is now known as Kirkside Park. Make sure your doggo is leashed while visiting the park and be a courteous guest and clean up any messes your pup may leave behind. Walk along the many winding paths and cross over the Adirondack style bridges, sit beside the lazy stream and tell your dog some stories, or simply sniff the multitude of local flowers. It is a place to be treasured. A recent addition is the Barn Pavilion that can be rented out for special occasions. If you are passing through Roxbury with your pup, Kirkside Park is a must see for a fun, natural escape from the inner city!
