Dog Walking in Rumford

Although it's technically a neighborhood within the northern end of East Providence, Rhode Island, Rumford has taken on a life of its own! Although this area was originally settled way back in 1636, the town has undergone plenty of changes. At first, Rumford wasn’t even considered part of Rhode Island; it was actually considered part of two towns in the neighboring state of Massachusetts. Rumford didn’t become part of Rhode Island until 1862 - over two hundred years after its founding. With its dense population and quaint main street district, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

Unfortunately, the “something for everyone” doesn’t really extend to our canine companions. If you’re hoping to have some fun and want to bring your dog along, there’s only one dog-friendly restaurant available, which is located in the southern end of Rumford. Don’t fret just yet, though! With Rumford being so close to East Providence and Providence, there’s fun to be had that’s only just a hop, skip, and jump -- or car ride -- away. There are several veterinarian clinics located within these two cities as well, so you’re never too far away from getting care for your dog. Give Rumford a go; you get the small town vibe with a major city just next door.

Located just five miles from Rumford is Providence’s Federal Hill neighborhood, which is home to the nine-acre Dexter Training Grounds. If the thought of walking your leashed dog on nine acres isn’t enough incentive to visit, what about the chance to visit a dog park? Dexter Dog Park is a fenced-in, off-leash dog park where your dog will have the chance to make plenty of pawesome new friends. Make sure to bring waste disposal bags so that you can clean up after your dog; no one wants to step in anything!

Although your pooch definitely loves hanging out with you, he also probably wants to hang out with his own species from time to time. Why not visit a popular dog park to let him? Slater Park, located in Pawtucket, is just ten minutes up the road from Rumford, and it’s home to Pawtucket Dog Park. With two separate areas for large and small dogs, you can play it safe knowing that your dog is with friends he can handle. Some breed restrictions do apply; call the local parks and recreation department if you want more information on these regulations.

You’re hungry, but you have your dog with you. What are you going to do? Visit East Providence’s downtown district and go to Madeira Restaurant! This restaurant serves up delicious Portuguese cuisine -- both classics and modern dishes. Locals rave about the grilled jumbo shrimp and barbecued chicken. There are plenty of outdoor tables where your dog can dine with you, but outdoor seating isn’t available when it’s too cold or it’s raining, so plan around that. Your dog will need to be on a leash and use his best table manners!

Located just fifteen minutes from Rumford is Providence’s Hope neighborhood, and if you’re wanting even more restaurants where Fido can dine with you, this neighborhood simply can’t be beaten! Chez Pascal serves up delicious French cuisine, whether you’re in the mood for modern or classic dishes. Bone Appetit! Sometimes, though, you don’t want anything fancy; a simple sandwich or salad will do. On those days, visit The Sandwich Hut, which is a local deli. Your dog can dine with you on the patio, but he’ll need to stay on his leash. Try to resist giving your dog a bite; can you withstand the puppy eyes?

If you and your furry friend enjoy exploring nature together, whether it’s taking a hike or simply having a picnic in the woods, make sure to visit Lincoln Woods State Park. Located in Lincoln, this park is about twelve miles from Rumford. There are several trails running through the park, but be aware that some of them are only for mountain bikers and horseback riders; you should stay away from those. Maps are available online and at the park’s welcome center. Bring along your dog’s leash, as one is required, and plenty of water. Waste disposal bags are not provided.
