Walk Score in Cathedral Park

Cathedral Park is located on a peninsula on the north side of Portland, Oregon. There is a commercial area on the northeast side of the community and residents of the region can walk to local restaurants, shops, and services. Some restaurants in this commercial district, such as Burgerville, allow dogs to join their owners for a bite to eat in their patio seating area.  

When walking with your dog in the Cathedral Park area, you and your pet will enjoy warm sunny summers when the temperatures rarely get unbearably hot and breezes from the ocean tend to moderate hot spells. Rain is common during the other seasons and you and your dog will benefit from having waterproof gear to keep dry. In the winter, precipitation and sub-freezing temperatures can result in icy sidewalks. Daytime winter temperatures usually rise above freezing, so you should not have to wait long for slippery surfaces to thaw and provide safer walking conditions.

Cathedral Park is located north of the Willamette River with a rail line on the east side. The St. Johns Bridge crosses the river at the park, located centrally along the southern border of the community. The Portland Toyota Dock is located on the southwest side of the community and industrial activity extends along the river. 

The residential area is heavily treed and there are smaller, older, attractive homes in the area on well-maintained properties. There are also some multi-story apartments located on the northeast side of Cathedral Park.  

The terrain slopes down toward the river and you will need to walk up and down some hills to get around the neighborhood with your pup. Some streets in the community do not have separate pedestrian sidewalks for people and pets to walk on. Where separate pedestrian ways are not present, you will need to share the road with traffic. Keep your dog leashed and walk on the right side of the road facing oncoming vehicles.

The Cathedral Park neighborhood is home to a park of the same name. This interesting park is located under the St. John Bridge and gets its name from the gothic, cathedral-like arches that form the supports for the bridge. This park is the site of local events and is located along the river, so the greenway also has a boat ramp and dock. There is a half-acre off-leash dog area in the greenway, but it is not enclosed. There is drinking water available for your pet, however, you should bring your own waste supply bags to clean up after your dog.

A short distance to the northwest of the Cathedral Park neighborhood but still within walking distance is Pier Park. This park has recreational facilities including a skate park and disc golf course. There are paved and unpaved paths in this 87-acre park which make great walking trails to explore with your leashed pet.
