Dog owners can now take their pets to Cain Park, thanks to legislation passed by Cleveland Heights City Council Tuesday.
The Dog Project, a pilot program to allow dogs on leashes in Cain Park for six months, was unanimously approved at council’s meeting.
The Dog Project is modeled after a program in Lakewood that culminated in the abolishment of dog prohibitions in the city's parks.
Dog owners: read the restrictions here.
Leashed dogs can be walked in the park from April 15 to October 15 of this year. If the program goes well, council will consider continuing it in some fashion after the pilot ends - possibly at other Cleveland Heights parks, too.
The proposal follows a survey last year about whether dogs should be allowed in Cain Park.
