Located on the south side of Council Crest Park, the off-leash dog area takes up two acres of the 43-acre property. It is the perfect place for you to take Spike to exercise and have fun with other canines. There is ample free space to roam around, but pet parents should come prepared as there are no dog poop bags available. Pet parents have to bring some for them to use.
The Council Crest Park Off-Leash Dog Area is something to behold on a bright day. It offers spectacular views of Mt. Jefferson, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier. Dog owners can bring their furbabies on a hike with them to see the four volcanoes and some great views of the city of Portland.
You can also bring a picnic lunch for you and your beloved pooch to enjoy or with family and friends. Pooches will love running in the open field and through the pine trees but all that activity can easily get Spike thirsty so make sure you bring water as there is no drinking water available in the vicinity.
Council Crest Park Off-Leash Dog Area is thought to be Portland’s highest point, and it was initially known as Talbot’s Mountain and was also known as Glass Hill. The splendid views you get are worth more than going to the park. The peace it offers is a refuge for those seeking a little time away from work with their pooch right by their side.
There are bathrooms in the Council Crest Park Off-Leash Dog Area so no need to be afraid if you need to use the toilet. Parking is effortless during the week, but it can be such a challenge on weekends when the park is full. Some people take their bikes up or walk to the park because it allows them to exercise and have fun at the same time.
