Best places to go for dog walks in North Haven

by Amy Hazelton.

Even though there aren’t any dog parks in North Haven CT, there are still plenty of places to walk your dog throughout town.

Where we live, there are a lot of sidewalks where people walk their dogs. This is very convenient for owners and also great for dogs who may be wary of cars passing by. The sidewalks near Quinnipiac’s North Haven campus go on for a couple of miles. Before you know it, you’re walking a mile down Bassett or Pool Road on a nice brisk dog walk!

There are also some great less trafficked streets in North Haven. We see many people walking dogs in their neighborhood mainly because the small amount of traffic it receives.
