Frequently Asked Questions

Why isn't there an off-leash area in every Portland park?

 Off-leash areas are just one of the many types of recreation amenities requested by park users. Other requested facilities and equipment include sports fields, playgrounds, swimming pools, gardens, and activities. It is not possible to provide every one of the 200+ parks in Portland with all of the facilities requested by individual interest groups.
