The Alum Creek Dog Park is in the town of Lewis Center in Ohio. There are ample spaces for parking vehicles by the dog park entrance. This is an amazing dog park, which is reserved for the sole purpose of exercising dogs off-leash. It incorporates two spacious sections of grassy fields. One for large breeds and one for small dogs. Both areas are fenced with wooden trunk and wire mesh. Both areas also have direct access to beaches on the lake shoreline and dogs are allowed to swim. There are also mature trees throughout both parts of the off-leash area which provide great shade on sunny days.
Pet owners should be aware that dogs must display the correct social behavior both to humans and other dogs to be able to use the facility. Any dog showing aggressive behavior should be leashed and removed from the dog park. All dogs must have their vaccinations up to date and be wearing a license tag and rabies tag on their collars. All dogs must be trained to respond to voice control and owners must maintain visual contact with their dog at all times.
The dog park is not recommended for children under twelve years of age. Older children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Running, screaming, and the chasing of dogs is strictly prohibited. Anyone wishing to exercise a dog must be over eighteen. No handler can enter the dog park with more than two dogs at any one time. Fishing is not permitted from the beaches of the off-leash area nor is it allowed for people to swim there.
Food, including dog treats are not permitted in the park. The Lewis Center authorities request owners to refrain from using retractable lashes inside the dog park as they can cause accidents. Poop bag dispensers and water fountains are installed in both off-leash areas. Pet owners are obliged to clean up after their pets and help keep the dog park as clean as possible for the enjoyment of everyone.
