The Shroeder Dog Park is an off-leash dog park in Grants Pass, Oregon. The dog park is located in the upper day use area of Shroeder Park, and there are two parking lots close by. Vehicle parking carries a daily fee of $5 which is payable on entering the park. It is also possible to pre-purchase an annual parking permit for $30 at the parks office on Ringuette Street during working hours or online via the website.
The annual parking permit is valid for all Josephine County parks. This dog park in Grants Pass is just one of many amenities available for visitors to Schroeder Park. The park, which runs alongside the Rogue River, is a popular place for whitewater rafting, camping in tents, yurts and RV's as well as fishing, picnics and other sporting activities.
Unless in the designated off-leash area, dogs visiting the park must be on a leash. The two dog park enclosures, there's one each for large and small breeds, also have fun splash pads where pups can cool off in summer. The splash pads are just for the dogs and humans caught using them will be frowned upon as there are more than sufficient showers for people installed on the various campsites.
Pet parents who are taking their fur buddy camping with them at this park in Grants Pass, need to be mindful of the river. While it might be tempting to throw a stick in for a dog to retrieve, the river has a particularly strong current, and their four-legged tent mate could end up being washed downstream and out to sea.
Dog owners must keep their canine under their control at all times, and if their dog is causing a disturbance, they face being fined and asked to leave the park. Poop has to go too, and none should be left lying around under any circumstance. Keeping the park clean helps everyone have a great time.
