The Mission Hill neighborhood is located a short distance west of the downtown area of Boston, Massachusetts. This is a highly walkable district with shops, restaurants, and services located on commercial corridors such as Tremont Street and Huntington Avenue. Brigham Circle, located at the intersection of these two streets, is the commerce center of the neighborhood with many unique shops and businesses.  

J P Licks, Lilly's Gourmet Pasta Express, and the Frogmore Lowcountry Kitchen and Bar are dog-friendly restaurants in the region that allow your dog to share a meal with you in their outdoor seating areas. The Museum of Fine Arts and Gardner museum are located nearby and, within walking distance, there are colleges and a healthcare district. 

Boston has wet, cold weather during the winter and dog walkers will need waterproof coats and footwear. Severe winter storms with heavy snow may keep you indoors a few days each winter. After icy snowfall, conditions can be treacherous, especially in this hilly area, so use caution.

Mission Hill is .75 square mile neighborhood in central Boston. Sub-neighborhoods of Mission Hill include Parker Hill, Roxbury Crossing, the Triangle District, Back of the Hill, and Calumet Square. The neighborhood contains a historic district around Tremont Street and Huntington Avenue. 

The neighborhood is hilly and you may have some up and downhill climbs, some of which are steep. Mission Hill does have sidewalks along commercial and residential streets providing safe, separate walkaways for people and pets. Use caution when walking with your furry friend in commercial areas, around public transportation hubs, and along busy thoroughfares with heavy traffic by keeping them on a short leash and walking against oncoming vehicles to stay safe. 

Residential dwellings in the area are beautiful historic houses, many which are multi-story, that have been converted to condos. Interesting architectural features on residential and commercial buildings make this neighborhood attractive as does the heavy landscaping, large trees, and lush gardens on private properties.

The north side of Mission Hill is home to the Kevin W. Fitzgerald Park. Formerly a quarry, this park now has an open central area surrounded by trees and an asphalt walking path that loops around the park. This is a beautiful area to walk with your leashed dog.

The larger McLaughlin Playground is located further south and features a treed area with the McLaughlin Playground Path traveling through the woods on the south side of the area. It also provides a shady, sheltered walking path for dog walkers. Sports fields and facilities are located on the north side. Iroquois Street Woods and Back of the Hill Urban Wild are located west of McLaughlin Playground and are heavily wooded greenways with nature trails to explore with your pup.

The Mission Hill Playground on the north side of the community provides recreation facilities and a short walking path where you and your dog can check out the activities in the park.
