Wag! Walkers know Hawthorne

Hawthorne is a district centered around Hawthorne Boulevard and is a 10-minute commute east of Portland, Oregon's downtown core. This trendy, eclectic neighborhood is highly walkable with unique shops, eateries, bars, theatres, and music venues along a hip commercial corridor.聽

Dog owners in the area can walk to the Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic or local pet stores which include Mud Bay and Healthy Pets Northwest to pick up supplies or just a special treat for their pup. While strolling this interesting commercial corridor with your dog, there are multiple local eateries that allow pups to join their owners on their outdoor seating areas for a bite to eat. Outdoor seating may not be on the menu during cooler, wet winter months!聽

Dog walkers should be sure to have rain gear handy for wet weather in fall, winter, and spring and a warmer jacket for cool winters where the temperature ranges from just above to just below freezing.

What is the terrain like in Hawthorne?

The Hawthorne District is a long linear community stretching from 12th Avenue on the west to 60th Avenue on the east and is centered around Hawthorne Boulevard for a few blocks on either side. The commercial corridor is packed with interesting businesses and restaurants with lots of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Your dog should be accustomed to lots of noise and activity to be calm while walking this busy thoroughfare.聽


Side streets are lined with single-family vintage homes on beautifully landscaped properties with large trees and attractive yards that extend a few blocks north and south of the east-west boulevard. There are also some apartment buildings in the area and along the Hawthorne Boulevard.聽


The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills for you and your hound to hike up and down which is good news if you have mobility issues. Sidewalks along the commercial corridor and residential side streets provide separate walkways for you and your dog on neighborhood walks.

How many greenways are there in Hawthorne?

Hawthorne itself does not have any greenways, however, several nearby parks are located within a few blocks that make excellent walking locations.聽Mt. Tabor Park to the east provides 200 acres of greenway on an extinct volcano with hiking paths for various ability levels. There is also a four-acre off-leash dog park located in this greenway.聽

Laurelhurst Park is located a few blocks to the north and provides an ample 31-acre wooded park with a pond. There are unpaved and paved walking trails to explore with your dog as well as recreational facilities, public art, drinking fountains, and restrooms. There is an off-leash dog area here as well! Alternatively,聽Sewallcrest Park is located south of the Hawthorne district and this smaller greenway is five acres in size with walking paths and its own off-leash dog area.

Finally, Colonel Summers Park is another neighborhood park north of Hawthorne with five acres of green space, art, recreation, and walking paths you and your dog can visit.聽
