For a doggone good time in Clark County, look no further than the Lucky Memorial Dog Park! Nestled in a farming area in northwestern Brush Prairie, this puppy playground offers 7.5 acres of flat open fields for unfettered running, sniffing, and fetching. It's also a great place for both two- and four-legged social barkterflies to meet new friends, so hop into the car with Fido and head on over to this furrific canine hangout!
Named in honor of a tracking dog who passed away in the line of duty in 1990, the Lucky Memorial Dog Park is managed by volunteer-run, non-profit organization Dog Owners Group for Park Access in Washington (DOGPAW). DOGPAW exists to create safe environments for Clark County's furry residents to sprint, play, and mingle sans leash—and that's precisely the experience that the Lucky Memorial Dog Park provides.
The facility comprises two separate areas for large and small doggos, allowing petite canines to play carefreely on one side while the big guys ruffhouse on the other. The small dog area spans 1 acre and contains a 1/8-mile trail, while the large dog area covers 6.5 acres and includes a half-mile trail. Both sections are fully fenced with double-gated entries for the pups' security. If your pooch wants to hone their athletic skills, there's an enclosed agility course on-site as well.
Other pawtastic features include benches, a water spigot, and woofderful views of the surrounding farmlands and Mount Hood. The dog park also provides the only public access point to the adjacent 55-acre Lauretta Noreen Forest Preserve, which contains secluded walking trails that you can explore with your pooch. Note that Fido's leash must stay on if you're going to venture into the woods. Whether you stick to the dog park or check out the preserve too, make sure to bring your own bags and clean up after your pupper.
A pawsome time awaits your furry BFF at the Lucky Memorial Dog Park!
