Boston's 5 best dog parks
Updated: Mar 4
Many dog owners know a tired dog means a happy owner. Sometimes the best way to get the dog the exercise they need is to take them to a dog park to run them around with other dogs. Thankfully, some of the best dog parks in Boston let you keep your dog off-leash, which should really tire them out.
There’s multiple dog parks throughout the city and we tried to find the best of the best in the many parts of Boston. Hopefully you try out one of the below Boston dog parks and have a great time tiring out your pup or pups!
South Boston Bark Park
Pets love this fenced South Boston off-leash dog park, which includes benches, trees, tunnels, and gravel ground cover. Dogs must be licensed.
Address：Porter & Bremen St. Boston, Mass, 20128,
Bremen St Dog Park East Boston
This park has agility training structures for dogs to climb on, with separate areas for large and small dogs. They usually turn the doggie water fountains on in late March. Another nice amenity is that the park offers doggie bags in case you forget to bring your own.
Address：1280 Columbia Road, Boston, MA 021227
Peters Park-South End
This park has amenities for humans and canines alike. The dog run is completely fenced-in, and there are water fountains at dog-level. There is also a playground for kiddos and a basketball court, tennis court, and baseball field. Con: some say the fences are a bit low for larger dogs.

Ruff North End Dog Park
These two parks—the North End Dog Park (near Prince Street) and the Richmond Street Dog Runs (between North and Fulton Streets)—are operated privately by a nonprofit. The North End Dog Park has a turf surface that’s gentle on dogs’ feet, and in the warmer months it has a water play area. Richmond Street features night lighting with a gravel run and benches.
Paul Revere Park Charlestown
Underneath the Zakim Bridge, this unofficial dog park is a well-maintained open space where dogs can run free. Note: it’s not entirely closed-off from the nearby roads, with stairs and a walkway up to Washington Street. Bring your own doggie bags.
