Wag! Walkers know Back Bay

Back Bay is a neighborhood located southwest of the Boston central business district. This is a very walkable community with many pedestrian-friendly commercial corridors lined with high-end shops and boutiques, restaurants, hotels, and bars. Streets like Newbury, Boulston, and the Prudential Center and Copley Place Mall, as well as Commonwealth Avenue make the area a delight for people walking with their pets and feature many amenities.聽


There are three veterinary hospitals within walking distance and local unique pet stores which include D'tails Pet Boutique, Pawsh Dog Boutique, and The Fish and Bone. While strolling with your pup in this fantastic neighborhood, you can stop for a bite to eat at many restaurants which allow dogs on their pet-friendly patios including.聽


Weather in the winter months in Boston can be pretty cold and snowy, so you will need warm outerwear and footwear so you can still enjoy venturing out with your pet.

What is the terrain like in Back Bay?

Back Bay's north border is the Charles River and boasts greenway waterfront property.聽 One of the city's tallest office towers is also situated in Back Bay. The area is an upscale neighborhood that was developed in the 1800s and featured many residences and commercial buildings from that era. Three and four-story Victorian brownstones line local streets and have larger-than-average setbacks from roads which provide space for mature trees on street fronts.聽


Streets in the area are wider than many other historic districts and there are still a lot of one-way roads in the area, however, local streets are straight and follow a simple grid pattern, making it easy to navigate the region. The area has sidewalks creating separate pedestrian ways and is relatively level, so there are no steep hills to climb in the community.聽


Interesting buildings like the Boston Public Library, Gibson House, and the Institute of Contemporary Art have historically significant architecture and, along with the attractive residences, churches, and commercial areas, attract sightseers to the neighborhood.

How many greenways are there in Back Bay?

Back Bay canines can enjoy a walk over to the Carlton Court Dog Park on the southern border which provides an enclosed off-leash park. The Ruff North End Dog Park and Peters Dog Run are within short driving distance a well.聽


The Commonwealth Avenue Greenway is a heavily treed area on the boulevard between east and westbound lanes of the avenue with a walking path down its center that is easily accessible for Back Bay residents and their canine companions. For a riverfront walk, check out the Charles River Esplanade along the waterfront which is an excellent greenway for dog walkers and their pets.聽


Large picturesque parks like the Back Bay Fens to the south or Boston Common to the east provide larger greenways. Back Bay Fens is natural greenway situated around the waterway and Boston Commons has more manicured grounds and gardens. Both have walking paths where your leashed pet can enjoy a stroll with you.
