Dog Areas in University Heights

1 Park
1 Trail

The city of University Heights sits in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, just nine miles east of Cleveland. It is a great place to stop by with your dog, with many paw-riffic attractions close by for walks, plays and places to eat together. There is also an animal hospital in University Heights, and several vet clinics in neighbouring Cleveland Heights and South Euclid, so help is never far away should your pal fall ill.

Take your pup to the University Heights Community Park, the main green space in town where you can enjoy a little fresh air and exercise. Fido must stay on a leash here, but you can enjoy the picnic areas, paved paths and open space together. The Ashurst Rain Garden is another lovely little place to check out while you are here. The garden was built to help stormwater management and has become a spectacular garden, complete with wood-chipped paths throughout. Again, you need to keep your pup leashed while you enjoy the garden, and always clean up after him.

For something to eat in town, head to Rascal House for a sub, plate of wings or pizza. You can sit at one of the outside tables with your dog here while you refuel. For a sweet treat, Ben & Jerry’s in University Heights also welcomes pets at an outside table.  

So, grab the lead and get out and explore – you and your dog will love visiting University Heights.
