Wag! Walkers know Neponset (Port Norfolk)

Neponset is a South Boston neighborhood located a 17-minute commute from Boston's downtown district. The neighborhood is walkable with a commercial area on the east side near the river where many shops, restaurants, and services are available. Residents of the area can reach an average of three eateries within a 5-minute walk! 

The Neponset Pet Center and Animal Hospital is located in this area. Two unique pet supply stores can also be reached by pedestrians and their furry friends. The Family Dog Bakery features handmade gourmet treats for your pups and 2 Dogs Treats is also nearby. Venezia is a dog-friendly Italian restaurant where they are welcome to join you in the outdoor seating area. 

You may not want to plan outdoor meals during winter as Boston experiences cold, wet weather. During winter months, you will need to bundle up and have waterproof outerwear. When severe winter storms are occurring, take shelter and find indoor activities to exercise your canine companion!

What is the terrain like in Neponset (Port Norfolk)?

Neponset is bordered the by Neponset River on the east and south, Adams Street on the west, and the Clam Point neighborhood on the north side. Interstate 93 and train tracks run along the water on the east side and create an impediment to pedestrians and pets accessing the waterfront. 


Waterfront parks and trails make ideal places for a stroll with your pup, but residents need to traverse the tracks, commercial area, and interstate safely. The terrain in the area is hilly and tends to slope more steeply towards the river. If you or your dog has mobility issues, steep grades can be an issue when walking in the region. 


Residential areas are concentrated to the west and homes in the area feature historic architecture with attractively landscaped properties. These properties have large trees that provide shade in the summer. Sidewalks are prevalent in the neighborhood and provide safe, separate walkways for you and your dog on neighborhood strolls.

How many greenways are there in Neponset (Port Norfolk)?

Several waterfront parks and neighborhood greenways with recreational amenities are available in Neponset and can be reached on foot. Pope John Paul II Park is located on the south side of the community and provides sports fields, picnic areas, and a view of the river. The Neponset Trail extends north from this greenway along the waterfront to other greenways. 


The Dorchester Shores Reservation is located on an island and also includes three separate areas that occupy 44 acres along the east coast of the neighborhood. Although not officially a dog park, this greenway is very popular with dog walkers and has a greater walking path, beaches, and views of the ocean. Larger greenways in Neponset include Garvey Playground and Hemenway Park and there are several smaller community parks in the area.  


For some off-leash fun, check out the Ronan Park off-leash area which is located a short distance northwest of Neponset in the Dorchester neighborhood.
