The warm days of spring and summer should not be enjoyed alone. Especially not when you have a dog!
There are some great dog-friendly parks in our region, so there is no excuse to avoid spending quality outdoor time with your furry friend this year.
Here are five of our favorite dog-friendly parks in the area, all of them worth a drive.
Bow Wow Beach
5027 Stow Rd, Stow
With over seven acres around a five-acre pond, all of it fenced in, this off-leash park offers good safety and security for your pet while also giving them loads to see and do. Plenty of places to run and roam and play, and it’s a nice enough park so that you’ll enjoy spending time there, too!
W 11th St & Clark Ave, Cleveland
With fountains, benches, double fences and more, this dog park offers plenty of amenities to ensure you have a good time with your dog in a safe environment. Day trippers will enjoy how quiet the park can be, and if you drop in after work you’ll have plenty of friendly people to keep you company. Give it a visit!
South Euclid Dog Park
699 S Belvoir Blvd
The large, fenced-in area at this leash-free park means you and your dog will have plenty of room to run and get out all that energy – and that’s just what your dog needs! Just be sure to bring water, as there isn’t much shade here, especially during hot summer days.
Keyser Dog Park
550 Keyser Pkwy, Cuyahoga Falls
The two acres of off-leash area here feature a rolling landscape, benches, shade trees, a water hydrant, and more. It’s a perfect, cozy area to get some exercise with your furry loved one. If you dog enjoys socializing, they will enjoy this park!
Twinsburg Dog Park
9577 Liberty Rd, Twinsburg
Nothing fancy here, and that’s just fine. This is a fairly small leash-free park that many consider a hidden gem. The real draw here is the group of regulars that are here almost every evening. They are a friendly, welcoming group who always make newcomers feel at home. If this is your first dog park visit, this one is a good choice!
Getting outdoors with your dog is good for your dog and good for you – and if you’re in the beautiful Chagrin Falls area and the surrounding region, it’s easy to find great places to do it!
