9 of the best off-leash and fenced dog parks in Portland

Feb 24 2021, 11:55 pm

Your dog deserves to run around without a leash on sometimes.

Rather than monitoring them in your backyard, alone, bring them out to an off-leash dog park where they can socialize and meet other cuddly canines.

You may prefer fenced sites for your dog as they can roam freely without the risk of running away or onto incoming traffic. All fenced sites in Portland are open from 5 am to midnight.

Here are nine of our favorite off-leash dog parks in Portland:

Brentwood Park is a wonderful family park. It features a fenced, half-acre off-leash area with plastic bags available. There is no water on-site, however, so dog owners should bring their own.
