Middletown is a metropolitan city in Ohio, only 40 miles north of Cinncinati. The thriving city has a lot of history, although the history of where the town got its name remains a mystery. Today the city is known as an All-American City and has the motto "Bright past, brighter future". This is also true for the four-legged residents of Middletown, as the city continues to make it a bright future for them by creating more and more dog-friendly city parks.
The most popular park in the city is Lefferson Park, thanks to its 58-acres of open space and recreational fields. The park holds multiple fields, including four fenced-in baseball fields, enclosed tennis courts, basketball courts, and soccer fields. Other features of the park include picnic areas, a pavilion, a playground, open areas to run around in, open space to run around in, and restrooms. Dogs do have to remain on a leash, but will have access to water, clean-up bags, nighttime lights, and benches.
Jacot Park is the highest rated park in the city and has some good reason why. Not only is it a great place for kids and families, but it's also dog-friendly and has some great features for pups. There's an asphalt trail that circles the park, with soccer fields and open space to run around in. There's also a pavilion and a playground, with restrooms and lots of parking. Dogs are required to be on a leash inside the park.
Middletown has even more dog-friendly parks, like Wilson Park and Dowling Park, and also offers 6 animal hospitals.
