East Cleveland is a sleeper town on the east side of Cleveland in Ohio, only 7 miles from the city's downtown area and 3 miles from the shore of Lake Erie. The town has been incorporated since 1911, and was founded by a group of Scottish immigrants. Today, the town holds a couple of locations on the National Register of Historic Places. You don't have to have a Scottish Terrier to enjoy the town either, and can have fun at the city's parks no matter what breed of dog you have.
For a gorgeous mixture of thick forests, open fields, and developed land you and Fido should take a day and relax in Forest Hill Park. The park has over 248 acres of land, which is the largest single body of green space in the area. Inside the park, there are recreational fields like three baseball diamonds, enclosed tennis courts, and basketball courts. There's a small lake for fishing and over 4 miles of paved, gravel, and nature trails that wind through the park. Trails connect to additional amenities like water fountains, a playground, a pond for fishing, picnic tables, clean-up stations, and trash bins that are available to humans and leashed pups.
Pattison Park is another dog-friendly spot to travel to, and although the park is much smaller, it's just as popular for its wide open space, surrounded by trees. There are paved paths to walk Fido on, open space to play with Fido in, and additional features like old tennis courts, a playground, benches, and trash bins.
Green space, forested areas, and a dog-friendly atmosphere make up the city of East Cleveland, where the closest vet is only 1 mile away in the city of Cleveland.
