  1. Summit Park in Blue Ash has it all: restaurants, trails, a state-of-the-art playground, and a classic dog park. Dogs must be leashed while entering and exiting the park, but are free to roam in the grassy, no-frills fenced area. Summit Park, 4335 Glendale Milford Road, Blue Ash, summitparkblueash.com
  2. Although not a traditional dog park, Redbird Hollow Trail in Indian Hill is the best kept secret for Cincinnati dog-lovers. The three-mile hike isn’t strenuous, and the wide paths of the clearly-marked trail make it perfect for walking your four-legged friend(s). Be sure to take a break by the creek, where splashing dogs abound. Stephen Field, 6475 Drake Road, Indian Hill, ci.indian-hill.oh.us
  3. Armleder Dog Park on the east side is a leash-free mecca for pups. Dog-engineered drinking fountains, showers, shade trees, and benches make this park the place to play. Otto Armleder Memorial Park and Recreation, 5057 Wooster Pike, greatparks.org
  4. Mt. Airy Forest Dog Park is a two-acre oasis for your pet. Splash pools, shady trees, and play equipment provide plenty of entertainment for fido. With Mt. Airy Forest’s ample space, greenery, and picnic tables this park has something for the whole family. Mt. Airy Forest, 5083 Colerain Avenue, cincinnatiparks.com
  5. Simmonds Family Dog Park in Cleves is the largest of its kind in the region — at 11-acres, this is an off-leash extravaganza. Doggie agility courses, strategically placed trees, and four separate fields ensure that your best friend has the best day ever.  Simmonds Family Dog Park, 5715 Hamilton-Cleves Road, greatparks.org
