Founded in 1847, Lebanon, Oregon was originally settled by pioneers who made their way West by wagon train. The first homesteaders chose the area because of its fertile lands where they could build homes and produce crops. For more than 100 years, Lebanon has celebrated its fruitful lands with a strawberry festival every summer. For the four legged residents and visitors, Lebanon has five veterinary clinics to make sure they stay healthy and happy.
For dogs and their two-legged friends, Lebanon is a woofderful place! The town’s largest park, River Park, is a pawsome place to hang out for furry friends. The park has big, open grassy areas perfect for playtime or relaxation. The West River Trail is a paved multi-use path that meanders through the park, and it’s a great place for a leashed walk! The park has picnic areas with barbecue grills, a playground, restrooms and fishing access to the Santiam River.
Had Irvine Park is another puptastic place for a leashed walk in Lebanon. The Mark Slough Loop Trail runs through this park as part of a two-mile loop. You and your pup can also explore the Santiam Canal, which borders the west side of the park.
