Dogs In Parks And On Trails:
Dogs are a part of many Bendites’ lives and involved with their owners in many recreational adventures. In Bend, there’s so much to do with your four-legged friend including:
- Walk and run on the trails and paths
- Swim in the Deschutes River
- Play, walk and run off-leash at nine off-leash areas.
No matter the activity or adventure, it’s important that dog owners manage their dog responsibly so that everyone can enjoy the parks and trails.
City of Bend law and Bend Park & Recreation District rules require that:
- Dogs are to be leashed up in public except in official off-leash areas.
- Dog owners are to clean up after their dog. To help out, dog waste bags and trash receptacles are available at many Bend parks and trails.
