Nominated for: BEST Dog Park
The Joe Wex Dog Recreation Space (DRS) opened on November 4th 2007 and is Boston’s first city-sanctioned off leash dog-park. Our “Grand Unleashing” came after years of volunteer support and donations, and the DRS continues to be one of Boston’s safest, cleanest, and most beautiful off-leash spaces for dogs (and their owners). The DRS provides a space in which dogs can run, play and socialize. It has over 13,000 square feet of space (including a separately enclosed @3,000 square feet for small dogs). The Joe Wex DRS is dedicated to promoting responsible dog ownership and fostering community and neighborhood development.
