Water-loving pooches are welcome at Cochituate State Park. The main attraction at this park is Lake Cochituate, three adjoining ponds that are ideal for recreational boat users and anglers. For dogs who prefer to keep their paws dry, the Snake Brook Trail is an easy walk at just 1.5 miles in length on a flat surface to a brook. Dogs must be on a leash for the duration of their visit and to preserve the cleanliness of the park, owners are encouraged to clean up any mess that they leave behind. Cochituate State Park is open every day of the week from sunrise to sunset.
