There is no reason to leave your best doggie friend at home when you go on vacation in Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory. In addition to dozens of dog friendly businesses, lodging properties, and hiking trails in the area, we also are home to some exceptional dog parks. Here are 5 of our favorites: 

Hazelia Field Dog Park (Lake Oswego, Oregon): This park has 2 dog areas, one for shy, timid canine friends, the other for the more boisterous crowd. After cruising the dog park, head into downtown Lake Oswego to check out all the public art in town. 

Memorial Dog Park (Wilsonville, Oregon): This dog park has over 2 acres of fenced-in park for excellent dog play. Features at Memorial Dog Park include a small dog and big dog area, as well as a dog drinking fountain shaped like a fire hydrant. 

Mary S. Young Park (West Linn, Oregon): This is the perfect park to feel like you aren't in the middle of a city when you are. With over 5 miles of trails along the Willamette River, Mary S. Young Park is a dog owners heaven. It includes a un-fenced off leash area for dogs to run sitting inside a gorgeous forested area. 

Sandy Bluff Park and Dog Park (Sandy, Oregon): Around the corner from Jonsrud Viewpoint, one of the area's best views of Mt. Hood, you will find Sandy Bluff Park and Dog Park. It is fully fenced-in with double gate entry. Here you can find fully stocked waste disposal stations and a great space for you and your dogs to run and play. 

Willamette River: OK, so while not technically a dog park, you will spot many a local and visitor enjoying our recreation-friendly river with their best furry buddies. There is always room on your SUP board or in your kayak for your buddy to join you. Check out eNRG Kayaking for rental options.
