King is a neighborhood located in northeast Portland, Oregon. This mixed-use district has residential and commercial activity. The Alberta Arts District is partially located in the King neighborhood with unique and trendy shops, restaurants, theaters, and other business catering to the thriving arts scene. There's even a pet store along Alberta Street where you and your pet can visit for a treat. Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard is also located in the community and is lined with local businesses.  


If you are walking your dog in Portland’s King district, you will enjoy warm temperatures and the occasional shower in spring and fall with warmer, drier conditions in the summer. Extreme heat and severe thunderstorms rarely hamper daily outings with your canine companion. Winters are cooler and wet and a good, warm waterproof jacket and footwear will be necessary for daily constitutionals. Snow and extended freezing periods are rare, but when they do occur, walkways can be icy.

King is centered around the intersection of Alberta Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, a commercial intersection with plenty of unique arts-related businesses and interesting shops and services. The commercial area is not well landscaped, although the rest of the residential areas nearby are shady.


Residential dwellings in the area are older and feature architecture from throughout the 20th century, providing charm and diversity in the region. Properties have lots of lawns, trees, and gardens, and make a beautiful backdrop for a stroll with your furry friend throughout the seasons. Most residential roads have sidewalks to provide separate paths for pedestrians which makes walks with your pet safer than in areas where dog walkers need to share the roads with traffic. Luckily, the ground is fairly level and there are no steep hills to climb when traveling the King neighborhood on foot.

King residents can easily reach neighborhood parks near their homes when walking with their pups. Irvine Park is located on the south border of the community and provides over 16 acres of natural and recreational greenway. Your canine will enjoy playing off-leash here, but it is not enclosed, so make sure your dog has good recall. Other amenities in the park include sports fields and facilities, picnic tables, horseshoe pits, and a playground and splash pad. There are paved and unpaved trails around the park which make for ideal dog walking trails.

You can visit Two Plum Park with your dog, a small community park with open space surrounded by trees that features a play structure and walking path.

A short walk to the east will take you to Alberta Park. This 16-acre park also has an off-leash dog park where your pup can play. A walking trail around the park is just over a half-mile and a pleasant stroll through a lovely greenway.
