- BrittanayMay. 31, 2021Nice Park!
We visited Boston from Pa May 2021 and loved the Boston Commons with our dogs. It was nice and spacious, with a public restroom by the “frog pond” area. We ended up walking around the city and stopping at a place for lunch. Definitely worth the trip!

lots of doggies, many off leash. good area for potty breaks. be sure to pay attention to the entrances. there are stair to several are our doggy depends on a stroller so we had to carry it up and down at a couple spots.
- AllanJul. 30, 2019Great place for the dog to run around, but…
A sizeable portion of the Common is loosely fenced (parade fencing) as an off-leash area. Lots of space to run and fetch, but the area is not completely enclosed and your dog should have decent recall, or not be a bolter. Still, a good place to burn off some energy, and a beautiful area to walk on-leash in the rest of the Common. Not that the actually off-leash area moves periodically to prevent over-wear of the grass. Check their website for the current location if you are not a regular.
- SarahGMore than a year agoNice Walk
Living in Beacon Hill I frequents the Boston Commons quite often. Plenty of walking paths and benches and things to sniff out for my dog. Not nearly as beautiful as the Charles River or public gardens walk though. Sometimes there is some trash around or crowds of people. I haven't taken my dog on off leash hours but looks there are quite a few who do and the dogs are super happy!
