Eagle Point is tucked away in Jackson County. This laid back city sits just east of the Rogue River and is surrounded by spectacular natural beauty. Since it sits on a highway junction with access to several major lakes, Eagle Point is fondly referred to as “The Gateway to the Lakes.” Although it has been one of the fastest growing areas in southwest Oregon over the past decade, it still has the welcoming atmosphere of a small town.
Eagle Point has several furrific places to walk your pup. Centennial Plaza is right in the heart of town. A fountain, a decorative clock, and a gazebo make this a great spot for people watching or just pawsing for a break. On the other side of the street sits Bridge 202, a covered bridge that dates back to 1922. It’s a pedestrian bridge, so your furry friend can walk across this piece of history. Head over to Little Butte Park for a stroll along Little Butte Creek. Your four legged companion will love getting her exercise in such a peaceful setting.
Parks galore, beautiful scenery, and two local veterinary clinics make Eagle Point one puptastic city!
Chamberlain Park will make your pup bark for joy! It has more than enough room for romping around. The large grassy area is the perfect spot for your pooch to sniff and take inventory of all the new smells. Horseshoe pits, a volleyball court, a playground, and a basketball court make this a pupular park for the locals. Picnic facilities are available, so bring a sandwich and couple biscuits for your dog and stay for lunch. Since the park has a drinking fountain, it’s a good idea to bring a bowl for your pup so he doesn’t get thirsty. Also, make sure to use to clean up bags that are provided.
Is your pup is itching for a walk? Help her scratch that itch with a trip to Robert J. Pfaff Park. Located in the heart of Central Point, this park is a quick 20 minute drive from Eagle Point. Take a brisk walk around the park’s perimeter to get your dog’s heart pumping. Then mosey through the trees so she can cool down. If your pooch has energy to burn, jump on the Bear Creek Greenway and head south. This 18 mile trail begins in Central Point and stretches all the way down to Ashland. As you pass through puptastic wooded areas watch for birds and other little critters. Keep your pup leashed since this trail is used by cyclists and joggers.
