Walk the dog

Many parks and beaches along Boston Harborwalk are dog-friendly, providing excellent spots to walk dogs on a leash or, in some places, let them run around and play. Cleaning up after dogs is very important along the Harborwalk, both out of consideration for the enjoyment of others and to prevent animal waste from washing into Boston Harbor.
