Quiet neighborhood and corner lot with off and on street parking. Fully privacy fenced area suitable for both larger and smaller dogs. Wifi available on request. WINTER USE OF THE SPOT: We would like to keep the spot open as much as possible in the winter. Here are some guidelines for its use during the snow season. The City of Marlborough does not permit on street parking in the winter. This means you will need to park in our driveway. We make every attempt to plow, sand and salt it for safety but cannot always guarantee conditions. If we cannot get this done or do not feel it is safe for guests, we will close the spot during a storm or post storm for cleanup. We will assess this each morning and from time to time cancellations may occur. We do not use dog safe salt in the driveway, so please use a foot covering for your dog as you would in any public area if your dog is sensitive. In the spot no chemicals are used. The yard will have snow and we generally do not plow pathways unless the snow gets a foot or more deep.

What people say about dog parks around Boston, Massachusetts

Alexandra S.
December 2020
Yard was exactly as advertised! I like that it is on a hill, because my dog tired himself out a bunch running up and down the hill. After about 50 mins of sprinting he was so exhausted he went over to the gate and asked to leave. For us, it was perfect, but if your dog likes to jump over fences and is an escape artist, be aware that the fence is low.

FAQ about our Boston dog parks

Are dog parks good for dogs?
It is important for dogs to have off leash exercise to sniff and run. But the free and open nature of public dog parks has drawbacks. There could be aggressive dogs, disease transmission and cleanliness issues. For this reason, many dog behaviorists discourage visiting public dog parks and recommend Sniffspot's private dog parks. Sniffspot private dog parks only allow one guest to book at a time and are not open to the public, which solves many of these issues.
