Ever wonder how your pet(s) would react to your desire to re-locate to a condominium/townhome community that isn’t pet friendly. With no backyard to run around in or a sunny lawn for a summer sprinkler-run, it can be hard for pet owners to envision their furry family member living their best life. Luckily, we have a solution at Newburyport Landing (www.newburyportlanding.com). Our ground floor residences features sliding doors that lead to a fenced in backyard, plenty of green space for your dog. Newburyport Landing also has a dog-friendly walking path, the Rail Trail (www.cityofnewburyport.com), and a nearby park which is immediately accessible via the NBPT Landing community private entrance/exit. It doesn’t get any easier than that. Not only are your dog(s) going to be happy but you will have now simplified your life with more pet friendly options. So open up your ground floor slider and let the dog(s) out!
#1 Treat your dog to a walk in Cashman Park: (www.cityofnewburyport.com/animal-control-regional-services) where paved walking paths weave in and around this riverside area. Not only will your pooch get some much needed exercise, but she’ll also enjoy paw-some views of the Merrimack River. After a nice stroll, take a break on one of the park benches. She can rest her paws and you can watch the boats roll by. There is also an off leash area in the park. Although this is not an actual dog park, dogs are allowed to romp around off leash. Just keep an eye on your pooch as this section is not fenced in.
#2 Curzon Mill 36: Step back in time with a trip to the Maudslay State Park. A former estate, this 480 acre property has spectacular 19th century style gardens and white pine trees. It also has views of both the Artichoke and Merrimack Rivers. Take your pup for an enchanted walk through gardens of rhododendrons, azaleas, and roses. Venture down paths like Ridge Trail, Long Border Trail, or Laurel Walk. Your four legged walking buddy will absolutely love exercising in such a stunning location. The canopies of the pines are known to house bald eagles, so keep your eyes open for these majestic birds.
#3 Ferry-Moseley 24: If your pooch is begging for a walk, clip on his leash and head over to Moseley Woods. This forested park sits on the banks of the Merrimack River. Its large playground and zip line make it a favorite for families with children. Although dogs are not allowed in the play area, they are welcome to explore the trails that lead through the woods. Briskly walk around the paths so your dog can get a good workout. Once he’s tuckered out, relax and enjoy a view of the river at one of the picnic tables. Be sure to bring some water (and a treat) for your pup.
