Yes, Fido can run free in Somerville, at one of two off-leash dog parks. Established in 2006, Nunziato Dog Park at Nunziato Field was the first of the two (the other is at Ed Leathers Community Park). A fenced in area with a gravel surface means no worries about tearing up turf. Dog walkers and owners alike gather on the benches under the shade trees to shoot the breeze while their canine buddies have a yapping good time in group play. There's plenty of room for playing catch. All the City asks is that you bring your trusty plastic bag (a.k.a. a Fido Fun Bag), so you can clean up any, ahem, memories.
Meanwhile, next door at Nunziato Field, humans have a place where they too can run free. This grassy expanse offers a sunny space for picnicking or casual games of soccer, touch football, Frisbee and such. Shaded picnic tables offer seating.
