Take Your Dog on a Walk in Stark & Summit Counties

Dog-Friendly Parks - Stark & Summit Counties, OH - DeHOFF REALTORS

Walking your dog yields some great benefits for you as well as your pooch, and the activity has its own week October 1-7 to call attention to its advantages. In addition to being good exercise that helps you both keep your weight in check, walking your pup lets you both socialize. It also helps keep Fido from getting bored and engaging in destructive behaviors.

Dog parks are the perfect spot to walk your dog for a bit and then take him off-leash to romp in a safe area. Our real estate agents suggest visiting the following dog parks in Stark and Summit counties during Walk Your Dog Week and beyond.

  • Dick Goddard Dog Park at Ariss Park - 2520 Wise Rd., North Canton, OH 44720
    Located within 80-acre Ariss Park near North Canton homes for sale, Dick Goddard Dog Park has separate areas for large and small dogs. Those over 25 pounds have a 1.3-acre area, and small dogs weighing 25 pounds or less have a half acre of space. You'll also find a nearly two-acre off-leash dog run and water fountains for both of you.

  • Veterans Park Dog Park - 1714 Schneider St. NE, Canton, OH 44721
    Veterans Park Dog Park
    , located just around the corner from Canton homes for sale, has plenty of shade and lush green grass for both you and your dog, making your visit more comfortable. And if Fido gets overheated or dirty, you can even cool him off or clean him up at one of the park's six dog showers open in spring, summer, and fall. Small dogs under 30 pounds have 1.5 acres to play in, and dogs over 30 have 2.5 acres of their own.

  • Akron Dog Park 499 Memorial Parkway, Akron, OH 44310
    Operated by the non-profit group Better Akron Recreation for Canines, Akron Dog Park was founded in 2004. Located near Akron homes for sale, the park has a separate small dog park for pets who weigh 30 pounds or less. It features fenced-in grass/gravel terrain where dogs can run and play, as well as agility obstacles and play equipment so they can have even more fun. Sit on a bench in the shade and watch your dog romp, and take him to cool off at the seasonal doggie drink station as needed.

  • Portage Lakes State Park - 5031 Manchester Rd., Akron, OH 44319 
    Portage Lakes State Park
    is a popular destination for sailing, jet skiing, water skiing, and wildlife watching. These activities make the 411-acre park well worth a trip, and if you're a dog owner, it will probably become one of your favorites to visit. It has a dog park that's partially fenced with room for your pooch to frolic, and there's even an unfenced dog swim area to help him cool off or to get more exercise.

  • Keyser Dog Park  - 550 Keyser Pkwy., Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44221
    Earning positive comments on several sites dedicated to helping dog owners find the best parks, Keyser Dog Park gives your pooch plenty of room to romp and play off-leash.

    With award-winning chocolate, butter pecan, strawberry, and vanilla ice cream, this lovely little shop near Canton homes for sale is a must-visit. Almost Heaven Ice Cream features more than two dozen ice cream flavors along with sundaes, banana splits, milkshakes, ice cream sandwiches, and so much more.

  2. Handel's Homemade Ice Cream — 2191 E. Maple St., North Canton, OH 44720 / 7212 Fulton Dr. NW, Canton, OH 44718
    Baskin Robbins stands aside because your 32 flavors are nothing compared to Handel's Homemade Ice Cream. This popular shop near North Canton homes for sale has been around since 1945 and features more than 100 ice cream flavors, which means there's always something for every person to enjoy. Their high level of quality began with Alice Handel's homemade ice cream that she made using fresh fruit from her backyard garden, and that commitment continues to this day.

  3. Cherry Street Creamery — 136 Cherry St. W, Canal Fulton, OH 44614
    The family-owned Cherry Street Creamery has tons of ice cream flavors, milkshakes, sweet treats, and various food items. Every Monday, they kick off the week by posting a special, freshly made "mustard" flavor on their Facebook page. This wonderful shop near many Canal Fulton homes for sale is open from mid-March to October each year, so be sure to get down there when you get a chance and enjoy one of their tasty offerings while you can.

  4. Mak's Munchies N More — 7232 Portage St. NW, Massillon, OH 44646
    This deli and ice cream shop close to Massillon homes for sale is the perfect place for family and friends to find everything they need for a wonderful lunch or quick snack.

  5. Papa Roni's Pizza & Ice Cream — 68 W. State St., Barberton, OH 44203
    Although it's only been around for a little over 10 years, Papa Roni's Pizza & Ice Cream has made a huge impact in the area. In addition to chocolate, chewy chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, and mint chocolate chip, you'll find a variety of ice cream flavors, including their Superman special, a blend of lemon, cherry, and blue raspberry. Pick up a pizza and ice cream for a perfect lunch or dinner.

  6. Taggart's Ice Cream — 1401 Fulton Rd. NW, Canton, OH 44703
    It's hard to believe that this Canton landmark has been around since 1926, but ask any resident and they probably have a story about visiting there as a youngster. Taggart's Ice Cream features wrought-iron ice cream parlor chairs, high-backed booths, and wood/tile floors that harken back to the classic soda fountain days. Not only will you get a taste of nostalgia, but you can dig into burgers, hot dogs, soups, chicken strips, and several other food favorites.
