Dogs now have a second place to run and play off leash in Watertown, the Recreation Department announced.

Watertown residents can take their dogs to the dog park at the Alta at the Estate residential complex on the Westside.

The complex is located at 100 Woodview Way, off Waltham Street, in Watertown. It is located across from the Gore Estate.

In the spring, Watertown opened its first dog park at Howe Park on Pleasant Street, less than a mile west of Watertown Square. The town is also exploring opening another dog park on the Eastside of town.

  1. It should be noted that this dog park has numerous breed restrictions and a 100 lb weight limit. It is also much smaller than the Howe Park location.

    A sign at the new park reads as follows:
    “The following breed and/or mix breeds are prohibited: akita, american bull dog, american pit bull terrier, american or bull staffordshire terrier, bull mastiff, cane corso, chow, dalmatian, doberman pincher, dogo, german shepherd, husky, malamute, neapolitan mastiff, put bull, rottweiler, spitz, stafford terrier, presca canarios, toso inu and wolf-dog hybrid.”

    It should also be noted that the flyer created and distributed by Watertown Parks and Rec features a photo of a dalmatian, one of the prohibited breeds.
