Beginning August 2015, the City will be adding 3 new locations for shared use off leash hours. At Joan Lorentz Park in Mid-Cambridge, Hoyt Field in Riverside, and Greene-Rose Heritage Park in Area IV, dogs will be allowed off leash during early morning hours. This is in addition to existing dedicated and shared use off leash areas in the City, and one of the recommendations of the Off Leash Working Group appointed by the City Manager in 2013.

The shared use hours at these locations are:

  • Joan Lorentz Park: 8:00 A.M. to 10:00 A.M.
  • Hoyt Field: 6:00 A.M. to 9:00 A.M.
  • Greene-Rose Heritage Park: 6:00 A.M. to 9:00 A.M.

Only dogs with current Cambridge licenses are allowed off leash in these locations.
