Here's the Downtown Dog Park, Slated to Open Oct. 13


Apologies for the overcast weather, and the Downtown Cleveland Alliance says there's still a little left to do, but here's what the downtown dog park looks like right now. Not bad at all, if you ask us. The park, nestled between the Cuyahoga River and the Setter's Landing rapid stop, was paid for with $10,000 from donations and the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District and $10,000 that was matched by the DCA. It's slated to open Oct. 13.
