Dogs and Off-Leash Areas

Portland Park & Recreation’s dog off-leash areas (DOLAs) provide a wide variety of recreation options for dogs and their owners.


All DOLA Locations  |   Fenced  |  Unfenced


The Dog Off-Leash Area program works to:

  • Provide DOLAs that are healthy, fun places for dogs to play.
  • Promote compliance with leash laws and scoop laws.
  • Encourage responsible use of parks and DOLAs.
  • Connect owners with the resources they need to enjoy off-leash areas.
  • Support volunteer and fundraising efforts.

Reporting problems or conflicts helps keep parks safe and healthy.
