If you are looking for a place to walk your dog and allow it to run free while others are walking to be in nature, then I recommend Lake Mohegan in Fairfield, CT. It’s really a dog park.

This is our new spot for a walk near home with our dog. He loves being able to meet other dogs and run free along beautiful scenery. The local dog owners are generally very friendly also.

I'm at the park every weekend with my dogs, and it might be the best dog park ever thanks to all the trails and opportunities for the dogs to swim. We walk a three-mile path that changes with the seasons to keep the place interesting...More
