Cleveland Ohio Relocation: Fun Place To Take Your Dog


 Bow Wow Beach

While we have often written about great local restaurants or fun places to take the kids, today’s post is about an unbelievable place to take your dog. If you are relocating to the Cleveland area and are looking for a special outing with your family pet, Bow Wow Beach should be on the top of your list.

Located just outside Hudson Ohio, in Stow, Bow Wow Beach was rated one of the top 10 FREE dog parks in the U.S. It is officially located within Silver Springs Park, a 280 acre park complete with tennis courts, basketball courts, hiking and biking trails, picnic areas and more.

Although Silver Springs Park has a lot to offer, the highlight, at least for local dogs, is Bow Wow Beach Dog Park. It is a 7 ½ acre park with a lake that is fenced in and provides a safe and fun environment for dogs of all sizes.

Since its opening in 2007, it has quickly become a very popular destination for dogs and their owners. Many people who live in Northeast Ohio don’t even know about it, but those that do find it to be a ton of fun for everyone.                                                                            

Some of the features of Bow Wow Beach are:

There are specific rules for Bow Wow Beach as well that should be reviewed prior to attending. A few of note are:

•·          No children under 48″ allowed in park

•·          Puppies under 4 months are not allowed in park

Bow Wow Beach opens for the season typically in March. There is also a group called Friends of Bow Wow Beach that holds events and fundraisers to help support the beach.

If you want to reward your pet with a special outing, a trip to Bow Wow Beach is a must. Be sure to take your camera too so you can capture a very special day with your loving pet. Feel free to tell all your friends who have dogs as well. They will appreciate it.
