Callahan State Park (Framingham, MA)

If you have a dog or if you are a pooch lover like I am and you live in the Massachusetts area, then you must make a trip out to Callahan State Park in Framingham, MA.  In fact, they should rename it Canine State Park.

When I arrived at the park, shortly before 9 on a Saturday morning, the fairly ample parking lot was already almost full.  It did not take long to find some cute canines to photograph.  I had more trouble deciding which dogs to photograph.

Casey wanted to get an extra close up photo.

Shelby wasn’t sure if he should play with his ball or pose for me.

Finn, an Australian cattle breed mix, wanted to say hi.  Right after I took this photo, he ran up to me and snuggled with me.

Leaves carpeted most of the trails and the foliage was not at its peak.  But, there were still so many pretty views.

There is lots of open land for dogs to play or run around on.

There is a creek that runs across the park

It began to rain, only for a few minutes, when I was at the creek.  It stopped just after I get a few shots of the rain making ripples on the water.

The dogs went in for swim and one of them even retrieved a stick.

The park has a circular path which is great for joggers and anyone who wants to take a leisurely walk.  The Greater Framingham Running Club held a 5k/10k run the day I was there.

The runner in blue and yellow waved to me.  Who said runners aren’t friendly?

There are so many things you can do at Callahan State Park.  This radio plane enthusiast took his plane out for a spin.
