Although Cleveland is a very dog friendly city, we somehow don’t yet have a dog park downtown. With all of the great things happening downtown – new apartments, restaurants, the towpath trail connection – I think it’s about time downtown dogs, and people who can bring their dog to work downtown (jealous), get their own park.
The plan is to build a 4,500 acre park on W. Superior, across the river from Jacobs Pavilion at Settler’s Landing Park. The Downtown Cleveland Alliance is partnering with the Warehouse District Development Corporation, Flats Forward and the GCRTA to bring the dog park downtown. They are currently seeking donations, which they will match dollar for dollar, to make this happen. They need to raise $10,000 by Sept. 5, so if you want to help make this happen you have a week left to donate.
You can donate here: https://tackk.com/downtowndogpark and different donation amounts come with rewards:
$10 – sticker
$25 – sticker and a retractable leash
$50 – sticker and dog park t-shirt
$100 – sticker, leash and t-shirt
All contributions will be recognized by name at www.downtowncleveland.com once the fundraising campaign is closed.
If nothing else, do it for Swagger! He needs to place to play on off days.
