A Guide to Northeast Ohio’s Best Dog Parks
After all the obedience classes and endless walks around the block, you're finally ready to take Rover to a paradise designed especially for pooches: the dog park. While state law prohibits having your dog off-leash on public property, for the safety of your mutt and others, there are several off-leash dog parks in and around Cleveland that will finally give Fido some well-deserved freedom.
With the Metroparks close at paw, dog-friendly attractions are plentiful, but you still need to optimize your time spent outdoors. Which ones are best for a scenic selfie? Is there even Wi-Fi access, or do you have to use your own data? How many Tinder matches are nearby? We narrowed the search and reviewed some dog parks in the area so you don't have to waste any time second-guessing.
As always, make sure you read each park's rules and PYOP (pick up your own poop). Be conscious of other dogs and confident your canine will get along with other playmates of different breeds and sizes. Most parks close at 9 p.m. unless otherwise posted.
