The downtown Cleveland Dog Park officially opened last Monday. Woody and I couldn't make the grand opening because I was heading back from Chicago. So, Saturday morning was the day. It was a bit cold and rainy, and around 9 a.m., so Woody was the only dog there. This gave him enough time to attempt to pee on everything and explore the entire scenery.
Though the dog park is on the opposite side of downtown from where we live, it gives us an excuse to go on a long walk. Plus, the scenery is awesome. The park itself is over 3,000 square feet and has ample room for games of fetch. The only complaint I've heard from others is that there isn't an area that separates small and big dogs. I didn't have any problem with this...but we were also the only ones there when we went.
Regardless of distance, I'm going to take full advantage of this before it gets too cold for Woody to be outside for a long time. I'm so happy this is here and appreciate everyone who made this possible, including Curt's brother on behalf of Harlem Public - his bar in NYC - and his dog Meatloaf.
Have you made it to the Downtown Dogpark yet? And, what's your favorite dog park in Northeast Ohio?
I'm just a twenty-something female raising the weirdest dog I've ever met.
