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!

    #1 Vallevista/ Sherman

    The 73-acre Sunnybrook Preserve in the northeast of Chesterland is a lovely place to take an on-lead walk with your pooch. There are three well-signed trails through here; the 0.3-mile asphalt Pine Ridge Trail, the 0.8-mile gravel Woodland Trail, and the 0.5-mile gravel Jumping Mouse Trail. The diverse landscape of wetlands, sedge grass meadow, conifer forest and a north-south cool spring offers incredible views and many fascinating animals to spot, including the black-throated warblers, jumping mouse, short-tailed shrew and mink. As this is a Preserve, dogs must be kept leashed while enjoying the area with you. Make sure you bring plenty of water for you both as well as your clean up bags.

    The Rookery, in the southeastern section of Chesterland, is a 562-acre heron preserve where dogs are permitted on-leash for a walk along one of the trails. There are two main trails here with shorter interconnecting trails throughout the park. The Woodcock Trail is 0.4 miles and paved for an easy walk through the picnic areas and open marsh and swamp forest. The straight out-and-back Interurban Trail is a gravel one-mile walk that takes you over the Chargrin River. There are tables and restrooms at the picnic area, and ample parking close by. Bring yourself a packed punch, water for you and your dog, and a stash of cleanup bags to help keep the Preserve clean for future visitors.

    #3 South Kirtland


    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.

    #4 Novelty

    The West Woods is seven miles south of Chesterland in the small town of Noelty, and another beautiful spot of nature for a little exercise and fresh air with your pup. This park covers a massive 902 acres and is filled with wetlands and mature forest to explore. There are nine trails here, from the 2.7-mile gravel Pioneer Bridle Trail, to the shorter 1.5-mile Ansel’s Cave Trail, 0.3-mile Discovery Trail or 0.1-mile Trout Lily Trail. The diversity of wildlife is amazing here; keep your eyes peeled for the many songbirds and amphibians that call the area home. For this reason, you must keep your pup leashed and controlled at all times, and always clean up after him. It is a spectacular place to enjoy, you are both sure to love your visit here.

    #5 Willoughby Hills

    In Willoughby Hills, just nine miles northwest of Chesterland, is the beautiful North Chargrin Reservation to enjoy a lovely walk with your dog. The Forest Picnic Area in the south of the Reservation has parking and restroom facilities and is where you will find the Forrest Trailhead. From here, you have access to a 2.75 mile section of the State-wide Buckeye Trail, plus the Bridle Loop Trail, Sylvan Loop Trail and the paved All Purpose Trail. There are many other trails throughout the Reservation as well as four other picnic areas further north to find as well, so it is worth seeking out a map before you head out. While dogs are permitted on the trails with you, keep your pup on a leash to protect him and the local wildlife, and always clean up any mess he leaves behind.
