Good news for dog owners of downtown Cleveland! The first Downtown Dog Park is coming to the Warehouse District. It’s location will be planted west of Settler’s Landing Rapid Station. Thanks to the supporters and donations from residents of Cleveland, this dog park will be a great space for people to walk and play with their dogs. Scott Suttell, of Crains Cleveland, writes of the success of donations to make this dog park possible:
DCA said in a news release that about 60% of the $10,000 community goal came via online donations. Downtown residents made up nearly 70% of those who pledged online support, DCA said, while the remaining 30% came from Greater Clevelanders and donors outside Ohio, including pledges from New York City, Orlando and Raleigh, N.C.
The remaining 40% of the $10,000 community goal came from the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District — an organization that for a few years has run the high-visibility Pick Up Poop campaign to encourage responsible dog ownership that yields cleaner water.
“Enthusiasm for this dog park was contagious,” said Laura Wiegand, director of development for DCA, in a statement.
Construction on the park began this week. DCA estimates it will be complete “within a few weeks.” It will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 13, for dogs and their humans.
The dog park is in Settler’s Landing Park, an open area adjacent to the RTA station on the eastern bank of the Cuyahoga River. It has 4,500 square feet of play area and will be equipped with pea gravel, fencing, a gated entrance and benches for humans.
