Located in the intersection of Holyoke Street in the Back Bay area of Boston and Carleton Street, Carleton Court Dog Park is within proximity of Prudential Center. It is a converted tennis court that is surrounded by lush greenery. A fenced area, it has adequate room for dogs of all sizes to socialize and get proper exercise, although because of its small size, there are no separate areas for small and large dogs.
There is a water fountain at Carleton Court Dog Park but it sometimes does not work, so owners are advised to bring their water supply to share with their furbabies. The place always has a right mix of dogs of all sizes, but pet parents need to be more responsible for their canines to avoid injuries and accidents.
Unlike other larger parks, Carleton Court Dog Park is simple, so there are not many amenities. Although it is bare, it is a lovely place for pet parents to take their canine children to if they just got off from work and are searching for a place nearby.
Carleton Court Dog Park does not have any seating, so if prolonged standing is not something you can endure; you can bring your foldable chair. Seats are another thing which the park lacks so it can be a challenge to go and stay in the park during hot summer afternoons. There is no supply of dog poop bags, so pet parents must bring their own to clean up after their furbabies and dispose of the refuse in the receptacle.
The Friends of Carleton Court Dog Park supports Carleton Court, which is managed by the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Other pet parents and park goers are very polite, and there is always a friendly atmosphere. Tiny and large dogs coexist peacefully in the Carleton Court Dog Park and have the time of their lives.
