Travel about 15 minutes west of Oregon’s State Capital City of Salem, and you’ll find Rickreall, a small, rural community. The town’s roots date back to the 1850s, and many historic buildings still line the streets today. Rickreall residents enjoy the big-city amenities of nearby municipalities, including Dallas and Salem. Should your pup need veterinary care, there are four animal care clinics just a short drive away in Dallas.
For dogs in Rickreall, the place to be is the Nesmith County Park! This pawpular park has tons of mature trees with lots of shade, perfect for relaxing. There are nature trails that wind through the park’s woods and meadows. You and your pup will love exploring on the sandy banks of Rickreall Creek that runs through the park. It’s a pawsome spot to wade in and splash around on warm days. The park has picnic tables, fire pits, fishing access and restrooms, too. Nesmith County Park is open May through September.
If you and your pooch need overnight accommodations, check out the Riverside Inn Dallas, about five miles from Rickreall.
Dogs and their two-legged friends who love rural life with modern convinces a short drive away will love the lifestyle in Rickreall!
