Dog Friendly Outdoors Body 001

Paw-sitively great outdoor walks

Boston is surrounded by glorious rural countryside in all directions meaning there are plenty of outdoor spaces to take your pets. The area is home to two impressive RSPB nature reserves, Frampton Marsh and Freiston Shore. Both of these sites are dog friendly but due to the sensitivity of the wildlife that inhabits these fascinating places, it is important that dogs are kept on a leash, under close control and stick to the reserve's designated footpaths.

Check out Boston's country parks and nature reserves for a full list of the outdoor spaces you can take your pet (please note that dogs are not allowed to Dion Nature Reserve, Boston's newest reserve).
