Maize Memorial Dog Park in Ontario, Ohio is located just west of Mansfield, Ohio. The dog park is located within a larger city park. The dog park is a large size but lacks any shade for those hot summer months. The grass is well maintained and is great for those dogs who love to run. There are also some hiking paths nearby which Max and I explored. Overall Maize Memorial Dog Park is a decent dog park for the locals but probably not worth a side trip to check it out.
Grand Ravines Dog Park in Jenison, MI is located just outside of the city of Grand Rapids, MI. This dog park is just part of a larger park area. In addition to the dog park, there are beautiful hiking trails (some of which are fenced for off leash play). There is also a walking path within the traditional fenced dog area. Max and I explored one of the trails and wished that we would have had more time to check out all the others. We loved the concept of hiking paths that are fenced in for those of us who have curious dogs! Grand Ravines Dog Park which is just a part of the overall park which partially fronts the Grand River. Located next to the park is modern restrooms and a dog washing station.
We highly recommend checking out this dog park if you are in the area. We will definitely come back next time that we are in the Grand Rapids, MI area.
Godown Dog Park is in Worthington, Ohio which is a suburb in Columbus, Ohio. Max and I were very impressed by this dog park. The large dog section was huge and had tons of beautiful trees which provides much need shade in the summer. We spent a good deal of time here exploring the entire dog park and meeting friendly dogs to play with (not to mention all the squirrels we chased)!
We highly recommend checking out this dog park if you are in the area. We will definitely come back next time that we are in Columbus.
Glass City Dog Park in Toledo, Ohio is now Max and I’s home dog park. It is a member’s only dog park which requires an annual fee and proof of vaccination. The annual fee is reasonable and well worth it as this is the only dog park in the city. Glass City Dog Park has three large fenced areas: one small dog only and two large dog sections. The park is very well maintained and the members are very friendly. There are walking paths in each of the sections along the fence. Recently, the dog park has added agility equipment within the different sections. We love our new dog park and gladly drive 15 minutes to use it as often as possible!
Arnold City Dog Park is located on the south side of the St. Louis Metro area. It is one of the few free dog parks in the area. The majority of dog parks more centrally located are members only which is unfortunate for those of us passing through the city. Arnold City Dog Park itself is a small fenced dog park with a large dog and small dog area. It is frankly not much of a dog park. However, the dog park is located within the larger city park which is great in that it has a great walking path around a very pretty lake. Max and I enjoyed walking in the park and chasing some squirrels. If you live in the area, the park is a good place for your daily dog walk and a quick stop at the dog park for some puppy play but not worth a separate trip from outside of the area.
Canine Meadow Dog Park in Kirtland, Ohio was amazing. In addition to large and small dog park areas, there is a separate fenced section with a pond and beach!! All the dogs were loving it. Max is not a huge fan of water so he was very content to wander the edges and play chase with the other dogs but I loved it! Canine Meadow Dog Park is an example for other dog parks to emulate. Check it out if you are in the Cleveland/Mentor area.
Imerman Bark Park in Sagniaw, MI is a great-sized dog park. Imerman bark park is within a larger neighborhood park which is nice for the other amenities. The bark park has both large and small dog areas with fun agility equipment. Max and I enjoyed meeting the local dogs and chasing the squirrels up the trees. Highly recommend this park!
Thompson Dog Park in Amarillo, Texas was such a wonderful surprise! The overall Thompson park was very large with various activities and the dog park was located on a swimming pond. Now Max hates water but I enjoyed watching othere dogs play in the water. Thompson Dog Park is also very large with great trees for shade. We were sorry that this was only a pit stop on the road as we could have stayed for hours here. Highly recommend this park!
Paws OK Dog Park in Oklahoma City, OK is a great dog park. Max and I were relieved to find a good dog park after the previous day’s disappointment at Midtown Mutts Dog Park. This park is located within a neighborhood park and does not have locked out hours which was great for us as we were there just as dawn was breaking! Paws OK Dog Park had plenty of room to run and Max also tried some of the agility equipment too! We would recommend this dog park.
Midtown Mutts Dog Park in Oklahoma City, OK is a small fenced dog park near downtown Oklahoma City. Max and I were frankly disappointed by its size and attendance (there was only one other dog there). Also as we were coming off the road, the lack of restrooms made for a very short visit. Midtown Mutts Dog Park does not have any nearby amentities while it is probably a great space for nearby residents; I would not recommend this dog park to others.
