North Clackamas Dog Park in Milwaukie, Oregon is an off-leash dog park that has 1.5-acres of enclosed dog park that is great place for your pet to run about and have fun. In addition to being fully gated, the North Clackamas Dog Park is open throughout daylight hours. The dog park provides water for your canine companion. Dogs must be kept on a leash whenever they are outside of the dog park’s perimeter fence.

North Clackamas Dog Park Amenities

This is the largest park in the district, covering 45 acres, and it features two off-leash dog parks, one for little and shy dogs and the other for larger dogs. The North Clackamas Dog Park also features a double gated entrance to keep all of your canine pals in the park and safe.

You should be prepared for a hike to the off-leash dog park from the parking lot, but once you get there, the effort will be well worthwhile. Because the park is so far away from the parking lot, you shouldn’t be surprised if you and your canine companion are the only ones there

Even while there is water available, it is only through a hose, so make sure to bring a bowl for your pet with you as well.

Plenty of Space

The North Clackamas Dog Park is a spacious park that is well worth the hike from the parking lot, but keep in mind that it can get quite muddy during the rainy season, so come prepared with plenty of clean up towels for your canine companion in the car.

Although pick-up bags are available at the park, you may wish to bring your own just in case. As is customary, please pick up after your dog.

After your canine companion has had his or her fun, go for a walk around and see what North Clackamas Park has to offer. They feature a lovely Rose Garden, but keep in mind that you must keep your dog on a 6ft. or shorter leash while visiting the remainder of the park.
