The closest off-leash dog park to Cottage Grove is about 37 miles south in Sutherlin, but it’s worth the drive. The Sutherlin Dog Park has everything you and your pup need to have a good time. There are separate areas for smaller dogs and bigger dogs. Water is available for your pooch. Garbage bags also are provided. If you want to relax, you can take a seat at one of the many picnic benches scattered throughout the park. The small town is a great place to meet other dog-loves, and it’s a terrific way for your four-legged friend to socialize too!
Along with the beautiful wildlife, ponds and river, Pass Creek Park features a fun, on-leash area designated for pups to socialize. The 2.2 mile walking trail will keep you and you pooch walking for a while; the trail is paved and is perfect if you and your pup like to roller skate. Don’t worry; there are several large shade trees to rest under when you need a break along the way. And the park is equipped with bathrooms, benches and water fountains.
