12 Dog Parks in Cincinnati – Have Some Fun With Your Four-Legged Friends

The Cincinnati area has 12 dog parks to enjoy with your pup – many with separate areas for small and large dogs, dog drinking fountains, and benches for owners to sit on while the dogs run free. We’re sure your dog will need a nice long nap after visiting one of these spots!

We are all looking forward to some time outdoors – and dogs are no exception! As outdoor community areas slowly begin to reopen, dog parks are the perfect spot to take your furry friend to stretch their legs.

Here’s our list of dog parks in the Cincinnati, Ohio area:

Due to many community spaces being closed, be sure to check in with each location before you visit.

Located in the heart of OTR, the Dog Park at Washington Park is a favorite spot for dogs (and their humans) to let loose downtown. A water creek, dog water fountain, and large granite boulders give dogs plenty to do while their owners can relax close by on one the Dog Park’s benches.

The Porch at Washington Park is located right next to the dog park, so be sure to bring a few bucks to enjoy a local Cincinnati beer (ages 21+) while playing with your pup. Kids can also come along to play at Washington Park’s Interactive Water Park and the Children’s Playground.
