Dog Walking in Vancouver

Grab your munchkins (e.g. your kiddos) and your pooch and head on over to Pacific Community Park. Your kids will have a blast on the playground and basketball courts, and while they’re running off those ice cream sundaes your in-laws insisted on buying them, you can take your dog over to Dakota Memorial Dog Park, which is on the north side of Pacific Community Park. This dog park spans an entire eight acres, and every square-inch is fenced in. Jog around the gravel trail, play with a favorite toy, or practice on the park’s agility course. When you’re done, leash your pup back up and rinse him off at the dog rinse station. Dakota Memorial Dog Park opens its doggie gates at seven a.m. every day, and the fun doesn’t stop until the sun says goodnight!

It’s 7 a.m., and your dog is thumping his tail loudly against your night stand (his way of nonchalantly telling you to get up now). You know he’s not going to stop staring into your soul until you get out of bed, so you surrender. Now what? Well, get dressed, and take Fido to Brush Prairie Dog Park so he can run off his ornery energy. This dog park stretches over 7.5 acres of land, and has two separate areas: one for all dogs, and the other for small/shy dogs. Let your dog run to his heart’s desire – as long as he’s done by dusk, when the park closes.

Ready for a day of fun? Grab your dog’s loudest squeaky toy and head on out to Ross Dog Park. This eight-acre park is completely fenced in and separates the big dogs from the little guys (> 25 lbs are considered small dogs). Ross Dog Park also has trails to explore and a water station.

Exploring the residential Evergreen East neighborhood with your pup is a great way to get out and meet other dog loving neighbors. Sidewalks along the streets are perfect for a quick potty break, but planning a day at Dakota Memorial Dog Park at Pacific Community Park is sure to get your dog’s tail wagging. The 8-acre off leash area is fenced with a double gated entrance to keep your pup safe. In addition to the open lawn, the park allows your pooch to investigate forested areas and have a pawsome time on the rustic log agility course. Pup parents can rest on the park benches, or take a walk with Fido over to McMenamins East Restaurant for some European cuisine and craft beer at a table outside.
