Peninsula is a small village in Summit County, Ohio with a population of just over 500 people. Also part of the Akron metropolitan area, Peninsula offers the best of small-town living along with the convenient amenities of a big city. Nestled between Akron and Cleveland, Peninsula is just a short drive away from anything you'll ever need. But you'll love staying right in Peninsula, too, enjoying the scenic river that runs through town, strolling through the tree-lined streets or taking a walk through the forest. If you're a dog owner, you'll appreciate that you can access a great trail system from Peninsula, and you're always just a quick drive from an off-leash dog park. 

Cuyahoga Valley National Park is in northern Peninsula, and this gorgeous natural area is a refuge for countless species of plants and wildlife. There are more than 110 miles of dog-friendly hiking trails in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, so you and your dog can explore the park together as long as they're on a leash. Don't forget to bring extra water and a bowl for your pooch along the way, because it gets very hot in the park. You and your dog will have so much fun partaking in all of the dog-friendly activities in and around Peninsula!

    If you're looking for a dog-friendly activity in Peninsula that's a little less grueling than a hike, check out the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail. This 81-mile trail is ideal for dog walking -- you can access 20 miles of the trail through the national park, but there are also other access points throughout Peninsula. The trail closely follows a historic canal that was used for mules pulling boats between 1827 to 1913. The trail's surface varies from boardwalk to asphalt and crushed stone, and along your journey, you and your leashed dog will pass beautiful scenery, historical sites, national parks, and communities.

    A half-hour drive northwest of Peninsula will get you to western Lakewood, Ohio and the Lakewood Dog Park. This fenced, off-leash park has a double-gated entry system and a separate small dog section, although if you'd like to use it, you will have to pass through the large dog section to get to it. The park was built in 2003, and while it initially had a grass surface, it was changed to light gravel, which has made for a cleaner and better maintained dog park. There are trees, benches, waste disposal supplies, and water in the dog park. Next to the dog park is the Metroparks Rocky River Reservation, where you'll find a variety of trails you can trek with your dog when they're on a leash.
