Greenfield Swimming Area

This is a walk and socialize meetup; not really so much a hike as a romp by the river! The Greenfield Swimming Area closes to dogs after Memorial Day Weekend, and re-opens in early November thru the winter. There are trails by the river. Lots of room to play for everyone! There is another trail on the opposite side of Nash's Mill Road that follows the Green River.

Directions are to take Route 91 and head towards Greenfield. Take exit 26 for Greenfield rotary which is the exit for routes 2West and 2A East.  Get off the rotary at the exit for route 2West towards NorthAdams and immediately get into the right lane.  (From north of exit 26, this will be the first exit off the rotary.  From the south of exit 26, this will be the 3rd exit off the rotary.)  At the 1st traffic light, take a right onto Colrain Road and go 1.4 miles.  Pass a 99 Restaurant on the right.  Pass Greenfield Community College on left.  Nash's Mill Road will be on the right. Greenfield Swimming Area will be on the left and we will meet in the parking lot.

    Watching Pepper with the other dogs, I am realizing she needs to be gradually introduced to one or two dogs at a time. She was a bit overwhelmed and anxious. Does anyone have any suggestions? The meetup is such a fun idea, I would like us both to look forward to our gatherings!

      Hi Cynthia, I sent you an email. I understand your thinking as I was where you are at over 1 year ago when I joined this group. But this group has helped me and my dogs so much with that and we all have fun. I am so glad I stuck it out. Sometimes it just takes ways to find whatever it is that will make this work for your dog and you. I hope you and Pepper will find something that works and continue to join us.

      Hi Cynthia, I would suggest that you arrive after the dogs head out on the walk, so that Pepper can hang back and watch the other dogs play and socialize. You might also want to arrange with one of the folks in the group to meet with you and Pepper, just the one dog a distance away from the group. If you are tense Pepper will pick up on that, so relax and make it a fun time for Pepper.

    I thought we could schedule this place one more time before the deadline for no dogs allowed, which is June 1st. Dogs are not allowed back in this park until after Nov 1st.
