The 13 Best Fenced Off-Leash Dog Parks in the Portland Area, Mapped

  |  Neighborhood Insight, Portland, Southwest Washington

Let’s face it. Here in Portland, dogs are members of the family. In fact, the city is packed with plenty of dog-friendly restaurants and breweries, hotels, and other establishments, so you don’t have to choose between happy hour and Fido. Plus, Portland has the nation’s highest dog park per capita with a total of 33 in the city!

Let your fur baby roam, play and make new friends at one of the many dog parks in Portland and surrounding neighborhoods. We did a little digging (no pun intended) and uncovered a handful of the best fenced-in, off-leash dog parks in the Portland area so you and your dog can spend less time searching and more time playing fetch.

This completely fenced-in area is filled with wood chips, which means no mud or dust!

Brentwood Park | Portland

6550 Southeast 60th Avenue, Portland
