In Portland, Oregon, within Sacajawea Park, there is a beautiful statue erected of Sacagawea, a monument, for the Shoshone Indian woman who helped guide Lewis and Clark through the west. Portland, Oregon is home to many wonderful people and their four-legged friends, which is exactly why they needed a dog-friendly park. The Sacajawea Off-Leash Dog Area is a great place to bring your dog to get some exercise and socialization.
South Portland is a city that loves its history and yet is modernized enough with pet-friendly amenities and wonderful parks for all. The whole park lies on roughly five acres, whereas the off-leash dog area is just over an acre. This fully fenced in dog area is green and has some shade. It is highly recommended that you bring water for your dog when you visit as there are no drinking fountains or spigots at this dog park.
You might also want to bring your own doggie waste bags, just in case. Dogs must be on-leash when not in the off-leash area. The dog area is usually quiet and not a lot of people here so; it may be an ideal spot to do some off-leash training when you visit. The Sacajawea Off-Leash Dog Area is a well-manicured park that you and your pup are sure to love.
To enter the Sacajawea Off-Leash Dog Area, dogs must be licensed and wearing their tags. Dogs should be friendly and not engage in any aggressive behaviors. Dog owners are responsible for their dog’s actions. Also please respect park hours, other park goers and help keep the park clean.
If you live in South Portland or you are just passing through, the Sacajawea Off-Leash Dog Area is an awesome place to visit for an afternoon of outdoor fun with your pooch. If nothing else come and see the statue of Sacajawea, one of the first ever built in the United States in memory of this amazing woman.
