However, there are a few streets without sidewalks, so always be aware of your surroundings, make sure you have control of Fido's leash, and make sure to plan your walking route strategically.

Hillendale Park and Wesley Lynn Park are the two nearest public parks to Gaffney Lane and both are located slightly northwest of this neighborhood's borders. Hillendale Park has a playground, a walking trail, several sports facilities, and a small wetlands preservation. The slightly smaller Wesley Lynn Park has a playground, a small walking path, and soccer and softball fields. 

Other local greenways include Rivercrest Park, Singer Creek Park, Barclay Hills City Park, Stafford City Park, Chapin City Park, Old Canemah Park, and Canemah Bluff Nature Park. Unfortunately, pups are not allowed in Canemah Bluff Nature Park, as they could potentially damage the sensitive nature preserve. 

Additionally, there are two dog parks located in Oregon City, both a bit north of Gaffney Lane. Barclay Park and Park Place Park are both homes to off-leash areas for your pup.
