    Edgewater Dog Park

    My daughter and I were really excited about our first venture with her new dog. We picked Edgewater Beach. It was fun walking down the trail to the beach in anticipation of how our puppy would react to sand and seeing so many other dogs. We picked a spot to set up and immediately smelled dog doodoo. I had set my beach bag on the sand and located doodoo buried under the sand. Then when I took my next step I found another stash of doodoo and it got swashed into the sole of my sandals. We were ever hopeful that we could manage cleaning up the canvas bag and sandals with smashed in doodoo. For the next 2 hours we got whiffs of it. During that 2 hours we saw numerous human animals not cleaning up after their pets, doodoo floating freely at the water's edge where unsuspecting humans walking along or wading at the edge were unknowingly encountering floating or sunken treasures in the murky waters. I am not grossed out by much, but this was one of the most unhygienic environments for humans and animals I have been at. I am sure there are worse, but... The one bone rating is because I really wanted to enjoy the day and the location, and spending time with my daughter and her dog.

    Great find!!

    First time at a dog beach and it was awesome! These are my people. My puppy got alot of socialization and the owners of other pups are so friendly!!

    Note since we were a little confused at first. The dog beach is on the far left. So you'll see a beach full of people just keep walking. There's a rock looking dog in the middle In the water that's kind of the dividing line!

    Excellent dog beach

    Our first visit was a happy surprise. The beach is huge and not crowded at noon on a hot Saturday. our dogs had a great time and we even caught a bit of the nearby Air Show. will plan more visits now that we know where to go.

    Great place

    My family regularly takes our dog Seamus there in the summer. Seamus loved every minute of being on the beach. He swims out and plays fetch and on the trip home he sleeps like a rock. There are some dogs the seem to roam free without supervision of their owners but everyone is watching out for the dogs.

    A little confusing

    Wonderful park to walk the dogs, right by Lake Erie. Moxie and Tonks especially enjoyed exploring the rocks by the lake. However, we were confused about the rules regarding the beach. Posters say no dogs allowed on the beach or in the water - yet there were quite a few dogs on the beach and in the water. We played by the rules and kept ours in the park. Either way, it was a lovely outing.

    Fun day!

    Loved his 1st time swimming! Fun day however you still have those annoying people wherever you go that let their dogs run wild… run up to everyone that walks by, and act like its fine… however whenever another dog attacks theres bc they are all over the place I am sure it will be someone else's fault!

    These people are the ones gonna get the place shut down bc they have no respect for the people arnd them.
