You can take your dog to any old park and Fido will be pretty happy. But the allure of a dog park is two-fold: First, your pup gets pup friends. Second, you get to talk to other people about dogs, which is probably your favorite hobby. Whether you’re apologizing for your pup’s general lack of obedience or chatting up that single with the cute four-legged pal, it’s all about interaction for you and your poor dog, who, let’s be honest, sits around the house most days waiting for you to do something cool with him. The Lakewood Dog Park in the Rocky River Reservation is the place to go, with ample room for your dog to romp around and plenty of other owners to keep you company.
