Are you looking for a beautiful place for your furry friend to run free while you enjoy views of the river? The Sellwood Riverfront Dog Park has you covered. This open grass field surrounded by oak and pine trees is one of the most picturesque parks in the city. While lacking certain dog amenities like a dedicated water spout and smell-proof waste bins, the natural beauty of this Sellwood wonder is the park’s main attraction. After the pooch and you get some energy out, leash up and head for a stroll North along the riverfront on a winding path through the woods. Water-loving canines can find small beaches to splash around in and people often can be found sitting in the sand reading a book.
After a long enough walk, you’ll come to the parking lot of Oaks Amusement Park which is partially closed until mid-June, after which it becomes a popular attraction for families throughout the summer. Across the street to the East, there is the larger Sellwood Park and Wildlife Rehabilitation Site. The park has multiple amenities not found at the Riverfront and is more geared to humans playing rather than our pets and is an exclusively on-leash area. For fun times with the pups, Sellwood Riverfront Park should be at the top of your list.
