BEACHWOOD, Ohio — Beachwood officially has an off-leash dog park!

The park is split into two sections: one for small dogs less than 30 pounds and one for larger dogs. The total area of the park is slightly less than a half-acre; small-dog area is 45’ x 135’ and the large-dog area is 120’ x 135′.

Barkwood is entirely covered by SYNLawn artificial pet grass which does not require watering or
