In the culturally diverse Killingsworth neighborhood in northeast Portland, 25-acre Cully Park features tons of activities for the whole family, including a pawsome playground and sports facilities. But for the neighborhood canines, the roomy dog park is the best part!
Cully Dog Park is a large, enclosed field with a comfy grass surface and trees for a bit of shade. To Fido’s delight, the large open park encourages running, socialization, and endless games of fetch! Located atop a hill, the dog park also affords a beautiful vista of Mount St. Helens and Mount Hood. Convenient parking is right outside the dog park gate.
Benches are provided for dog parents’ comfort, and there’s a water pump to help stop dangerous dehydration in its tracks. Nevertheless, it’s a good idea to bring some bottled water and a bowl in case the pump isn’t working or is turned off during the winter.
Another item to include in your backpack or pocket is a handful of waste bags. Picking up your dog’s “contribution” is not only the law but takes the comfort of other pups and their parents into consideration. Other rules include proper dog park etiquette and wearing current license and rabies tags at all times.
The entire host park is open to dogs on a leash, with the exception of the sports facilities, playground, and water features. Several picnic tables and pub tables have been placed under a shady pergola, and restrooms are located near the playground, along with a water fountain. Dogs who are sensitive or frightened by loud noises may react poorly to jets landing at Portland International Airport, which is very close by. It’s a good idea to assess your pup’s response and remove them if they become very upset.
For a grand puppy playtime, scoot over to Cully Dog Park and bring some fun into your fur baby’s day!
New adventures are exciting, but they can sometimes result in an injury. Before visiting Cully Dog Park, compare pet health insurance plans to keep your fur-child in the best “pawssible” shape for all your outdoor adventures!
