Take a weekend trip to the lively and welcoming community town of White River Junction to discover a delightfully historic town barking with wonder. This pawsome puptown is exploding with artistic spots and thriving businesses for you and Fido to sniff out. In case your pup needs medical attention while in town, three well veterinary clinics are available.
Follow the White River to find a wooftacular surprise! Here you will find the Watson Park cojoined with the Watson Upper Valley Dog Park. Your pupper is going to be waggin' his tail for days after he roams and romps off-leash with other crazy canines! Let your pup ruff around in this 1.5 acre spacious dog park that's fully-fenced, double-gated, and separated into small and large pooch areas. A mixture of gravel and grass gives Fido all sorts of terrain to roll and get dirty in. Dog waste stations are on-site, so no need to bring your own baggies. Membership is not required, but encouraged in order to keep the park maintained and open for the public. If you've got both doggoes and kiddoes on your hands, a well-maintained children's playground is located in Watson Park just a paw away.
Wag on over to the historic town of White River Junction to have a barking good time with your canine by your side.
Stop by the S Main Street neighborhood to delight in a pup-friendly Turkish coffee shop known as Tuckerbox. Five wooftastic tables await you and Fido outdoors, where you can enjoy breakfast items, morning pastries, lunch and dinner specialties. Save room for dessert to woof down an amazing Maple Walnut Baklava! This neighborhood is also home to the pawtacular Hotel Coolidge, where modern comfort meets historic inn. Your puppy pal is welcome to stay for an extra fee per night, in addition to a refundable deposit. Enjoy their tastefully-decorated rooms in this lovely and charming neighborhood!
Visit the River Junction neighborhood that lies just off Maple Street in White River Junction. This corner of the town is pawtacular for one very special reason: It's the point at which the the White River and Connecticut River flow together! Here also lies the Lyman Point Park, where you and Fido can enjoy the riverfront views from your shady park bench. Bring a blanket and plop down on the grassy area to enjoy a snack near the picnic area. Activities such as fishing and boating are also up for grabs for active pups. Restrooms and a kid's playground are available for those traveling with kiddoes!
