Chesterland is located in Geauga County, Ohio, and though it may be small, it has a lot to offer visiting pups! This town loves animals, and with two animal hospitals and a vet clinic in town, it also knows how to look after them!
If you are seeking a place to grab a meal with your pet in tow,
there are two great pet-friendly resturaunts in Chesterland. The Oak and Embers
Tavern, as well as the Buckstop Bar and Grille, will allow your dog to sit by
you at one of the outside tables while you enjoy a classic meal and cold drink.
There is also a Dairy Queen in Chesterland for a sweet treat or light lunch.
The Bessie Benner Metzenbaum Park is a lovely green oasis close to town where you can bring your pup for a walk and stop for a picnic and a play with the family. There are three short trails here; the easy asphalt 0.2 and 0.3 mile trails, and a more difficult 0.5 mile trail which takes you up to a lookout. A mature beech-maple forest covers much of the 65-acre park, but there is an old orchard to seek out, and the wetlands around Griswold Creek provided a perfect habitat for local birds. There is a playground at Bessie Benner Metzenbaum Park, as well as a reservable picnic shelter and bathrooms on site. Pets are welcome throughout the park, but must remain leashed.
There are many more things to see and do in this area. We know you and your pup will love Chesterland!
The Canine Meadow Dog Park in nearby Kirtland will allow your pooch some much-loved off-lead time. Located within the Lake Metroparks Farmpark, the dog park has two fenced areas to cater for big and little dogs, as well as an 1.84-acre swim area for your pup to splash around in that is accessible from the large dog area only. There is fresh water available, but bring a bowl for your thirsty pup drink from. After his play at the dog park, pop him on the lead and take a walk around the greater Lake Metroparks Farmpark. Here there are amenities including restrooms, picnic shelters and a visitor centre where you can get more information on the park and local area. Being a working farm, you may also be lucky enough to catch on of the animal displays or demonstrations while you are there.
