Wag! Walkers know Lower Roxbury

Lower Roxbury is located a 15-minute commute south of the central business core of Boston, Massachusetts. There are many local businesses well distributed in the area and concentrated along the Dudley Street commercial corridor. Local eateries, convenience stores, and other services are walkable in the district. 


 Dog walkers in Boston need to be prepared for a variety of weather. Winters are cold and snowy with occasional severe winter storms. You will need warm winter gear to be comfortable walking with your dog during the winter months. Summers are warm and humid and occasional heat waves may require you to walk your dog at cooler times of the day. Spring and fall can be rainy and wet, so you will want to keep a rain jacket and umbrella handy. Thunderstorms are also frequent in warm weather and can be severe with high winds and hail which can pose a hazard to exposed people and their dogs.

What is the terrain like in Lower Roxbury?

Lower Roxbury is bordered by Dudley Street on the south, Melnea Cass Boulevard on the north, Tremont Street on the west, and Massachusetts Avenue on the east. This is a developed urban neighborhood with mostly residential buildings, but some commercial activity. Part of the area is a noted historic district with buildings dating back to the 1850s and 1890s. Some of these structures exhibit Classic Revival architecture and have metal trim and details. There are low rise apartments in the area and townhouses as well as many single-family detached homes with vintage character. 


Streets are narrow with closely set homes and heavy landscaping. Mature trees provide plenty of shade to streets where sidewalks are present and provide cool, safe, separate pedestrian paths in the region. There are some inclines in the district but no steep grades, so it is not difficult to get around the area on foot when walking with your dog.

How many greenways are there in Lower Roxbury?

There are a few local neighborhood parks providing greenways in Lower Roxbury. Orchard Park has a ball diamond, basketball and tennis courts, with trees and a walking path you can visit locally with your dog. Gertrude Howes Playground has lots of shade trees and grassy areas well distributed in the park with a circular paved walking path looping around the attractive greenway. 


On the west side, the Southwest Corridor Park and trail provides 52 acres and extends for 4.7 miles. This park provides several recreational amenities and a great hiking path for people and their pooches. Dogs must remain on a leash in community parks.


For off-leash fun, you can take your dog north about a 10-minute drive to Carleton Court Dog Park or Peters Park Dog Run. These enclosed dog parks are fenced and are a great opportunity for your dog to play off-leash, but your pup should be well socialized, supervised, and under control at all times.
