Keizer Rapids Dog Park is a huge and scenic park in Keizer, Oregon. On its more than 100 acres, there is plenty of room for all types of dogs to run around. Whether your dog is large or little, there are separate spaces for small and large dogs. This protects little or shy dogs from larger or more aggressive dogs. Allow your dog to go around the park to exercise stiff joint muscles while staying fit.

About Keizer Rapids Dog Park

There is thick, lush grass in both park surrounds, which is beautifully kept in both places. In addition to grass, the main enclosure has a sanded section. In case of heavy rain, which is typical for the area, especially in winter, covered shelters are accessible at both locations. Visitors will find it easy to access the Keizer Rapids Dog Park because it is located near the parking lot. A supply of poop bags can be found in the enclosure.

You can also use the trash can outside of the enclosure. It is suggested that you bring a large bag for carrying your used bags. The dog park has a few benches, picnic tables and a small kitchen area. However, it is not allowed to be used for food or glass containers. For the convenience of smaller dogs, the small dog enclosure has miniature fire hydrants that are not operational.
