Accessed through the scenic Rocky River Reservation of the Cleveland Metropark, the dog park is owned by the City of Lakewood, Ohio, and managed in conjunction with volunteers of the Friends of the Lakewood Dog Park, Inc., a tax-exempt, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
Adjacent to the Metropark Emerald Necklace Marina, the dog park is open year-round and offers free admission. It features grass and sanitary stone ground cover, waste disposal and removal, an after-dark lighted area, seating, a water fountain (in season), two secure double-gated entrances and a designated small dog area.
The Lakewood Dog Park is accented by majestic trees and offers access to the Cleveland Metropark paved trails, wooded areas and the scenic Rocky River. The dog park is within walking distance from several Metropark parking areas, picnic areas, restrooms and food concessions (in season).
