Many cities the sizes of Gresham have off-leash dog parks that provide a real convenience and source of enjoyment to dog owners and their pets. These dog parks offer a safe and clean environment by providing an alternative to dog owners who might otherwise let their best friend run loose -- presenting a hazard to their pets and people.

Thursday, June 10, 2010 at 6:30PM the Gresham Parks Commission will consider a proposal for an off-leash dog park. This is not a dog park meeting, but rather a meeting to encourage the Commission to pass a dog park proposal.
Interested persons are encouraged to attend this meeting.
