What’s to Love:  A fan on my Facebook page recommended the Hondo Dog Park in Hillsboro, and I’m thankful for the recommendation!  Hondo is the nicest city dog park I’ve ever seen, and it’s well worth the drive from Portland, especially if you have some other Hillsboro destinations in mind.

Sandy River Delta: Got Dog?

Sandy River Delta ParkWhat’s to Love:  1000+ acres of no-feepublic trails, mud holes, bird blinds, beach access (Columbia & Sandy Rivers), and HUGE open fields for your dog to be off-leash!  There are only two areas where dogs must be on-leash (Confluence Trail and the parking area).  Otherwise, your dogs can experience a tremendous amount of freedom running free with other dogs and having a great time in what feels like a wilderness setting.

Fernhill ParkWhat’s to Love:  When we used to live in Northeast Portland, we’d frequent Fernhill Park with our dog.  As you can see, there is PLENTY of green space for romping, stomping, running, and jumping.  With the tall trees providing cover on the north end, this is a stunning park and the perfect destination if you feel like you need a little space.

Open green-space with paved-paths at Memorial Park Wilsonville, OregonWhat’s to Love: I visited this park twice with my son in June, 2008, and I know we’ll be back again soon.  I was looking for a park with plenty of open green-space to launch our model rocket (see video below).  I noticed that Memorial Park looked like the biggest park in the Wilsonville area, so we headed over to check it out. I don’t think I’ve ever been so shocked by the quality and design of a park.  I highly recommend visiting this park!
