Police: Columbia Road Beach in Bay Village is not a dog park

Posted at 1:46 PM, Jun 19, 2017

A report of a dog bite to police Friday afternoon at Columbia Road Beach prompted Bay Village police to remind dog owners that the beach is not a dog park.

A Bay Village resident told police her dog was bitten by another dog that had "gotten off of its leash momentarily." 

A Facebook page called "Columbia Dog Beach" identifies the beach as a dog park, but police say that's not the case. Officers also say people calling dispatch have referred to the beach as Columbia Dog Park.

Police emphasize Columbia Road Beach is not a dog park, it is a public beach where people are welcome to bring their dogs, as long as they remain on a leash.
