I think the dogwalking constituency is big and influential in the Prospect Park Alliance and the park management has been favorable to off-leash in the Nethermead and Peninsula and Long Meadow over the years as a way of getting nice middle class dog walking people into those interior parts of the park in hopes of displacing the more unsavory elements. Somehow the dogs and the bird watchers and others all coexist.

The comparable Olmsted-designed parks in Boston are Franklin Park and Arnold Arboretum. Neither allow offleash dogs but it seems to be a common practice in the Arboretum. If you land in Jamaica Plain you have access to both. Not a suburb however, if a suburb is what you want. Franklin Park's main open area is golf course but the park has lovely woods and open groves around the golf course for rambling. Off leash might not be so good, you'd have to see whether anyone else does it.

Thanks for this! Any info is helpful, even outside of the few areas I mentioned, as we aren’t set on a location yet...only ideas...so this gives us more to look into.

Will you be buying or renting a place? It's very difficult to find landlords that will accept dogs.

Otherwise, I was going to suggest checking out towns just north of Boston to have close access to the Middlesex Fells Reservation.

Bullington would qualify.
