Bare Cove is a vast area of greenery and nature trails with a size of almost 500 acres situated in the town of Hingham, Massachusetts, along with the banks of the Weymouth Back River. It is an area reserved as a wildlife sanctuary and a place where the public can go for recreation. This is an exceptional space filled with river shoreline, dense woods, open fields, wetlands, and an array of different plants and animals, life including fox, deer, and coyote.
Clean, spacious and filled with friendly people and pets, the Bare Cove Park Off-Leash Dog Area is a hit with everyone. There are several miles of woodland trails and paved roadways ideal for jogging and walking with your pooch, but since these are public areas, Spike has to be on his leash all the time. You may also sit back and indulge in peaceful contemplation with Spike by your side.
The Bare Cove Park Off-Leash Dog Area also has a museum which is open a few hours every day where locals and visitors alike can learn the history of the area. Pet parents are expected to clean up after their furbabies and to dispose of waste correctly using the barrels provided. The off-leash area is not fenced so pet parents must be in control of their furbabies at all times and must follow voice command. There is a fine of $50 for those who do not follow the rules.
A Bare Cove Park off-leash walking permit is a must if you want to use the off-leash area and the Hingham Town Clerk issues this. The consent must be obtained before any off-leash dog walking in the premises. Permits can be collected from the Town Clerk’s Office three business days after application. Because the park is a public space shared with bicyclists, joggers and the general public, everybody is urged to be responsible and to respect other park goers.
