PatchPets has some super exciting news, we are officially launching into the USA, initially touching down in Cleveland, Ohio in July! 

We thought this is the perfect time to showcase some of the great dog friendly locations on offer in the City of Cleveland area. These could well be the perfect antidote to ‘canine cabin fever’ after recent restrictions.

 Dog Parks – Cleveland has some great parks and facilities available to residents and visitors to the area including:

  • Lakewood  Dog Park This free off-the leash dog facility is located in the city of Lakewood and for everyone to use and enjoy! 
  • Cleveland Downtown Dog Park – Take your pooch downtown to the Downtown Dog Park to play off-leash in nearly 3,500 square feet of fenced space. The Dog Park features a play structure, PUP waste receptacles and seating for dog owners. Downtown Dog Park is open daily from 8am to 9pm.
  • Centerville Mills Dog Park – Separate areas for large and small dogs, featuring a water station, ample shade and some bench seating. 
  • Quarry Park North Dog Park – Separate fenced in area  for both small and large dogs, along with a separate commons area with picnic tables for owners to sit.
  • Twinsburg Dog Park Separate areas for large and small dogs. Water fountain, a few toys, trees and benches in the shade, and a few agility apparatus. Nice walking paths are adjacent.
  • Canine Meadow – Dog Park – Two nice big fenced in play areas, and a beautiful pond.
  • Bow Wow Beach – Featuring a huge lake for the dogs to swim in, obstacle courses and more. Remember to bring a towel to dry your dog off, and a full run around the lake so you can exercise
  • Barkwood Dog Park – Beachwood – Barkwood is an amazing fully featured dog park facility that’s primarily available to residents in Beachwood. Refer to their website for more details.

Take Your Dog To The Great Outdoors: Does your dog burn off a lot more energy than your typical pooch? Why not take them for a hike or a trip to the local lakeside beach.

  • Cleveland Metroparks – Cleveland Metroparks is an extensive system of nature preserves in Greater Cleveland. It has eighteen reservations, which largely encircle the city of Cleveland. There are over 23,000 acres in the combined Cleveland Metroparks. 
  • Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail – What about a scenic riverside route? The Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail is a trail converted from an old towpath 
  • Take Your Dog to Edgewater Beach – Just minutes from downtown Cleveland, enjoy a day there swimming, paddle boarding or fishing. Take your pooch to the  westernmost beach as that’s the most dog friendly.
