Roseburg in southern Oregon is rich with outdoor adventuring opportunities, and is conveniently loated near the Umpqua National Forest. Traditionally known for its lumber industry, this community is now a dog-friendly town that looks after its furry citizens with seven veterinarians who are never too far away to assure that your pooch is in tip-top condition.
Visit the Templin Beach Park on the east bank of the South Umpqua River, a perfect spot for a snifftastic walk along the river’s edge or a refreshing dip on a hot summer’s day. Your pup may be most excited to visit the Happy Tails Dog Park, located inside of the Templin Beach Park. This dog park offers a fenced one-acre space for dogs to run and play to their heart's content. Water and waste stations are available, and there are benches for humans as they watch their excitable pups have a blast. Micelli Park is nearby and offers a riverfront area on the same river for a delightful afternoon walk.
After your exercise, stop at the Pita Pit for a quick meal of a vegi or meat wrap, or drop in for breakfast and try the Awakin’ with Bacon wrap with your pooch by your side at the outdoor tables. When visiting in the area, stay at the Windmill Inn of Roseburg or the Best Western Garden Villa Inn, where your pup is welcome in dog-friendly rooms with you for an additional fee. Enjoy one of the many parks, and stay for the weekend.
Your pup will enjoy the short walk around Thompson Park while the kids play on the play structures, swings, 1/2 basketball court and the open lawn. Fido would love a dogtastic round of fetch or frisbee in the open area of the park. For more outdoor fun, head to the nearby Eagles Park. Here, your pup can enjoy a quick jaunt around this small park and some play time on the open lawn. Your pooch can grab a drink at the dog water fountains. Bring along your lunch and enjoy the chess board picnic tables before heading back home.
