Cleveland in Pawnee County, Oklahoma, is a city covering just 2.6 square miles, but is the gateway to many beautiful recreation areas along the Keystone Lake and Arkansas River. Cleveland is 110 miles north east of the state’s capital Oklahoma City. Although it is a small place, there are three veterinary clinics listed for the city, so help is close by should the unthinkable happen to Fido.
For your first outing here, check out the Cleveland Trail. This 2.5 mile asphalt trail follows the route of an abandoned right-of-way of the old Missouri–Kansas–Texas Railroad (MKT). The Cleveland trail runs from the south of town to the Arkansas River, opposite the neighbouring town of Osage and ends at an old trestle bridge. There is lots of wildlife to see along the way, so keep your pup on a lead for his safety and that of the local inhabitants. Please pick up after your pet to keep the trail clean for future visitors.
Billy Vessels Park in Cleveland is a lovely
little community park to visit with your pet. There is a playground, ball
courts and ball fields for the kids and plenty of open space for the dog to get
a bit of exercise too.
With many more places to check out around Cleveland, you and your pup are sure to enjoy your stay!
