Zero New Washington Street Dog Park
Donâ€™t be deterred by the somewhat-dodgy industrial-park settingâ€”this long, 20,000-plus-square-foot space has agility-training features, two water fountains (plus a spigot for washing dirty paws), a covered pavilion, and LED lights for after-dark play.
New Washington Street at Inner Belt Road, Somerville.
Thorndike Field Dog Park
There are some fun obstacles (stone steps, boulders) and a water fountain at this year-old pet paradise just off the Minuteman Bikeway, but the main attraction is the giant tree surrounded by wooden benches.
Margaret Street, Arlington.
This grassy expanse inside the 2,575-acre Middlesex Fells Reservation is the see-and-be-seen spot for local dogs. (It isnâ€™t fenced in, however, so pups should be under voice control.) After a good romp, hit the more than 100 miles of trails winding through Malden, Medford, Stoneham, Melrose, and Winchester for an on-leash cooldown.
