Stodder's Neck Dog Park

Stoddard's Neck Dog Park is a fun place for dogs. It is surrounded on three sides by water, an on the front by a 4 foot rock wall. The park is grassy and has trails for you you walk on, woods to romp in, and hills to roll down. The swimming is great too! People bring thier own water (there are bowls everywhere) and poop bag stations are located throughout the park. Most people there are friendly and responsible, and there are benches and picnic tables for them to socialize at as well! Stoddard's Neck is even easy to get to. Just hop on Route 3A, go through Weymouth, and right over the Weymouth/Hingham line. Go just past Abigail Adams Park. Immediatley after a small bridge but BEFORE the Dodge dealership the park in on the opposite side of the road. Visit Website

    Great place to swim!

    This vast dog park is a great place to take your pup (and yourself!) for a swim. Note that it is not fully gated.

    Lovely park, incredibly popular, beware that not all dogs here are well behaved

    I'm pretty sure Stodder's Neck is not officially an off leash dog park, there's a sign at the front of the park that says dogs should be leashed, but this isn't enforced at all. It is 100% an off leash dog park in practice. Expect to encounter a large number of off leash dogs here on weekends. The parking lot is often overflowing on days with good weather.

    I come here daily with my dog and the majority of the time it's a pleasant experience for both of us. There are ample opportunities for swimming, running, playing fetch and socializing with other dogs and their people. A water fountain for both dogs and people is available at the front. There's a stand with bags for dog waste and numerous trash cans throughout the park. Overall, the park is very clean considering the number of dogs who visit every day.

    Be aware that there are a few bad apples who bring their aggressive dogs here and don't seem to care about the danger they're putting other people and dogs in. You'll find numerous reports of this via google reviews. My dog has been nearly attacked by the same aggressive dog twice (a light colored greyhound) and the owner of this dog takes absolutely no responsibility for their pet - let it right off the leash even as it was aggressively barking and trying to chase after my dog. It ran after us out of the park and into the parking lot while its female owner did nothing but give a few completely ineffective 'come' commands from a distance. These interactions could've been much worse if my dog was also off leash. I have seen bad behavior from other dogs as well.

    This park is not regulated like Bare Cove is - you don't need to have tags or registration to get in and no one is patrolling the park, which is precisely why it's so popular. Aggressive dogs need to STAY ON LEASH or stay home for the safety of all! This won't deter me from continuing to visit Stodder's neck, but I have a reasonably large dog who could hold her own should an aggressive dog attack her. Anyone who visits with their well behaved dog off-leash should be aware of the risk before entering.
