This free dog haven is located within the family-friendly Danehy Park, a meticulously landscaped attraction which is home to many runners, walkers, and nature lovers alike. Though an oasis of natural beauty, Danehy Park and the corresponding dog park are central to area shops and major hotels, making the dog areas easily accessible for travelers with pets. The entire property is comprised of over 50 acres of natural terrain.
All three of the designated dog play areas are gravel-covered. Fresh drinking water is provided for your dog's enjoyment, and there are also benches in shaded areas for your comfort while you observe Fido at play. Toys such as frisbees and balls are also provided for Fido to help burn off some much-needed steam, and poop bags are provided for picking up and disposing of any mess he might make during his time at the park.
There are also a number of trails and paths within the larger Danehy Park that Fido can enjoy with you. According to park rules, it is mandatory that your dog be leashed when exploring public access areas of Danehy Park that are not designated for off-leash dog use.
Danehy Park is also home to a number of sports fields and recreational activities, making it an ideal spot for Fido AND the kids to visit together. After a rousing game of basketball or tennis, you and your family can enjoy the provided picnic tables to enjoy a barbecue dinner prepared on one of the many charcoal pits intended for public use on the park premises. For younger children, there are some fantastic play areas and a water sports section for them to enjoy.
Though Cambridge is a metropolitan area, the park itself is home to many different wildlife species. Take some time to enjoy watching nature at work, but for the safety of all animals, please ensure that Fido is leashed when not enjoying the designated dog areas of this great facility.
It is unknown if there are bathrooms on site for public use. Park officials do require that all dogs attending the dog play facility bear proof of their required state licensing tag. Vaccinations are strongly encouraged.
Looking for a fun family adventure that Fido can enjoy too? Take a trip to Danehy Dog Park. You won't regret it!
