“Puppy loving college student”
I am a dog mom of 3! I love spending the days with them, going on walks/hikes, snuggling and doing tricks. I know a lot about animals and I love to make new furry friends!

Ashtabula has a lot of rich history surrounding the port town of Lake Erie. The area was first inhabited by Native Americans and then attracted large crowds of Finnish, Swedish and Italian Immigrants during the industrial period. Not only is the history rich, but so is the land, and makes up lots of dog-friendly parks nowadays that serves its human and four-legged residents.
The best place for Fido to head to is the Smith Field Dog Park, a quaint park that's completely fenced-in for dogs to play off-leash safely. There are separate areas for large and small dogs, water fountains, clean-up stations, and a double-gated entrance for extra safety. The rest of Smith Park is dog-friendly, although dogs have to be on a leash outside of the dog park. There are paved trails, open fields, and a scenic pond around the park.
Cedarquist Park is the largest in Ashtabula, and is made up of open fields, with plenty of baseball diamonds, paved paths, and dense trees. Dogs are welcome at the park while on a leash and can enjoy plenty of room to run around and play, even in the enclosed baseball fields as long as no teams are playing. Additional features include water fountains, benches, and trash bins.
The town also has two dedicated veterinarians and provides a lot more space for pups to show how dog-friendly Ashtabula really is.
The neighborhood of Harbor sits right on the coast, providing beautiful views of the lake and nearby cliffsides. Right along the water is Walnut Bach Park, which boasts picturesque scenes of the wetland terrain, sand dunes, and coastal waves. The park is a great option to take Fido out for a walk along the nature trails, or even some romp and play in the grassy fields in the park. Additional features of the park include a concession stand, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, and dog-friendly plank walkway, all open to leashed pups with water fountains and clean-up stations.
The Lake Avenue and West Avenue neighborhood is filled with residential homes inside the town, but still provides lots of places for dog walkers. Wenner Field is a good place to bring the pup for a walk, with a perimeter sidewalk for walking and open green fields for Fido to stretch his legs and run around. The field is taken up by a football field, and enclosed by a fence, but pups do need to stay on leash. Brooker Field offers a baseball field instead, with benches and trash bins. Dogs are welcome to the field while on a leash, and owners will have to bring water and clean-up bags to both fields.
This small neighborhood is on the eastern edge of the city, marked by the Strong Creek along its western side. The best part about this small neighborhood for dog walkers is the Indian Trail that travels along the creekside. The trail starts at the bridge on E 24th Street and provides a wooden and dirt trail with access points into the river. Dogs are welcome, and aren't required to be on a leash, although the area is not fenced-in. At the entrance, there is a boat launch and open area to run around and play with Fido, but owners will have to bring water and clean-up bags.
The Ashtabula City Center is the business district of the town, filled with plenty of shops and small businesses. Inside the urban area are parks that provide a good place to walk Fido, like North Park. North Park has a perimeter paved walkway that winds through the park, with plenty of shady trees around with benches. Dogs must remain on a leash while inside the park. A second option in the neighborhood is South Park, which also provides plenty of shaded walkways and more open areas to run around with Fido. This park also provides benches and trash bins, and owners must keep Fido on a leash and bring water and clean-up bags.
5 miles east of Ashtabula is the small town of North Kingsville, a popular place for dog-lovers thanks to the abundance of dog-friendly parks in-town. Sunset Park is the most popular option in town, providing a wooded area and beach right on the coast of Lake Erie. The park is dog-friendly, which includes the beach and water area, allowing Fido to get some swim time in. Owners must keep dogs on a leash and bring water and clean-up bags. The in-town option is the Village Green Park, a recreational park with ballfields and open space. Leashed dogs have plenty of space to run around and play here, with amenities like water fountains, benches, and trash bins.
