It is a commercial district that boasts retail stores, restaurants, and traditional businesses which residents can access on their daily outings. Cambridge boasts a pretty dog-friendly attitude and you can find some places along your walk in this neighborhood to stop in and enjoy. 369 Coffee House has a small seating area outdoors for that quick coffee stop. Mr. Bartley’s also has outdoor seating and provides a water bowl for your dog while you enjoy one of their burgers. The Asian restaurant Thelonious Monkfish allows dogs at their outdoor tables as well. 

The climate in Cambridge is moderate to fair in the summer months and can dip down in the winter months, making it a little chillier. Overall, the weather averages out to an excellent experience for dog walking.

Central Square is commonly thought of as a 'city neighborhood', offering a large array of flat terrain which makes it fairly easy for elderly dogs or pups with joint issues to get around without much of an issue. Massachusetts Avenue is the main throughway with two main lanes and on-street parking, making the businesses along this road accessible. The side streets are smaller but have on-street parking as well, so you won't have to search too hard for a space to park your car. Made up of mostly commercial buildings plus smaller shops and restaurants, this is a sidewalk-heavy experience for you and your dog. Many restaurants have outdoor seating so keep a tight hold on your dog's leash while passing by so that you're being courteous to other locals. With a significant level of pedestrian and automobile traffic, you'll need to exercise caution to prevent any incidents.

The main section of Central Square, Massachusetts Avenue, is a concrete sidewalk terrain.  You will have to venture off that main path to find the few greenways in this neighborhood as it's a very urban environment. Don't worry, you have a few options! James Cronin Park is located at the corner of Western Ave. and Franklin Street. This park is very small but does offer a bit of green for your pup to roam on or take a quick potty break as long as you keep them securely on a leash to avoid running into any issues with leash laws. You can also find a bit of green at University Park Commons at the corner of Sidney and Pilgrim which allows for space to wander. Smaller patches of green surround the Commons, providing good spaces for quick breaks and stops or a reprieve from the hot sidewalks during summer time.
