By looking at Carlton today, you’d never know that this small Oregon town got its start in the late 1800s as a rough logging town. Nowadays, Carlton is known as the Wine Capital of Oregon, culminating in the charming historic downtown area with 22 wine tasting rooms, diverse restaurants, and unique shops. In the event that your pet needs medical attention or just a yearly check-up, Carlton also has a veterinary clinic to care for your four-legged friend.
For you and Fido, Carlton is a puptastic place! Dogs are allowed to be off-leash in the city’s Wennerberg Park, or as the locals call it the “Lower Park.” The Yamhill River flows around the edge of the park so your dog can take a dip, plus there’s a large grassy meadow perfect for a game of fetch. Just be sure to keep your pooch off the athletic fields and under control since this park isn’t fenced-in. The park also offers a walking path, picnic areas and a water fountain.
Get a true taste of Carlton at Cana’s Feast Winery. Your leashed dog is welcome to join you on the winery’s patio that overlooks the sprawling vineyard hills. This is a pawsome and picturesque place to enjoy Carlton’s wine culture with your pooch!
Whether you’re just visiting or you call Carlton home, you’ll love experiencing some of Oregon’s best wine country with your dog!
