Did you know Cleveland has two new dog parks – one in Kirtland and one in Medina? These new parks join a growing dog park scene in the Cleveland area. In addition to the park that opened last fall in Downtown, Parma just got approval to build a park as well.
Read on for more info on each park, as well as details on how you can help me expand my dog park coverage!
Canine Meadow Dog Park
9010 Euclid Chardon Rd.
Canine Meadow Dog Park is located in the Lake Metroparks. The park has a 2.5 acre large dog area and a 1 acre small dog area. The large dog space also includes a dog swimming area.
The park includes benches, water fountains and a restroom.
Directions: Take I-90 to the Rt. 306 exit. Head south on Route 306 five miles to Chardon Road (Route 6), turn left on Route 6, and head east 1.3 miles. Entrance to Canine Meadow is on the right.
Carolyn Ludwig Mugrage Dog Park
4985 Windfall Rd.
Not exactly new, this dog park opened late last year in Medina County. The dog park is located in the Carolyn Ludwig Mugrage Park and features a 1 acre small dog area and 6 acre large dog area. Like the Lake Metropark dog park, the large dog area has a pond for dogs to swim in.
Right now you have to bring you own water, but there are plans to build water fountains as well as provide an area to wash off your pets (Love that idea – I don’t understand why all dog parks don’t have that!)
Directions: Park entrance is located about 1/4 mile north of State Rt. 18
Parma Dog Park
A group advocating for a dog park in Parma just got approval to build a park. Check out their Facebook page to keep up to date on the progress.
They will be holding a fundraiser on June 20 at Flyer’s Bar and Grill. Tickets cost $25, and includes pizza, wings, salad, beer, wine and liquor.
Now Accepting Dog Park Reviews
The dog park scene is growing in Cleveland and I can’t get to all of them, although I will try! I would like to add some dog park reviews to the Dog Park page and will be accepting guest submissions for all area parks. I already have the downtown park covered (stay tuned for that next week), but if you want to cover your favorite local dog park – drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guest submissions should include photos as well as some details on park size, busy times, amenities (water fountains, etc.), if there is a small and large dog area and any other details you think people should know before visiting. The more details and photos the better!
