Peters Park is open daily from 6 am to 10 pm
and is located in Boston's South End
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.
Before coming to the dog-park, please visit our rules and regulations.
The DRS Committee of Friends of Peters Park counts on users like you to provide the support necessary to keep the space as beautiful as it was on opening day. Volunteering can take many forms, from helping to organize fundraisers and park events, to helping maintain the park itself. We welcome the involvement of everyone who wants to see the DRS continue to flourish! You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
