Temporary Dog-Off Leash Area Closure

East Holladay Park construction will start in December 2020 to fence in the existing dog off-leash area (DOLA) and install a drinking fountain. The expected completion is spring 2021. To make the park safer and more enjoyable for everyone, the dog off-leash area will be fully fenced. This construction was identified as a need in the 2006 master plan for the park.

While the dog off-leash area will be closed during construction, the public can use the dog off-leash area available at Luuwit View Park.

During this construction, the playground and walking path are not expected to be impacted. However, to help protect our community from the rapid spread of COVID-19, PP&R is following guidance from public health authorities and instructions from elected officials. For detailed information, please visit portland.gov/parks/covid-19-updates.

The DOLA fence at East Holladay Park is being constructed with a split rail fence that will have a welded wire mesh backing to keep dogs contained. This design is preferred by Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) maintenance staff for ongoing operations and maintenance. The DOLA will be similar to Willamette Park as an example of the finished product.

In addition, the wire mesh will be placed on the outside of the split rail away from the interior of the DOLA area. PP&R maintenance staff have found that dog urine deteriorates and corrodes metal rapidly and typically faster than typical weathering processes in the Pacific Northwest so much so that PP&R will be moving away from standard chain-link fencing for DOLAS in the future. Split rail with wire mesh will be the standard approach with the wire mesh on the outside of the split rail to manage dog urine exposure.

After the fence installation is complete, PP&R’s Urban Forestry will finish planting new trees inside the DOLA. Find out more information about the tree planting here.


East Holladay Park Tree Planting Master Plan

In 2006, community members and the City of Portland conducted a master plan process for East Holladay Park, in the Hazelwood neighborhood. Planting over 60 trees was one of the master plan elements the neighborhood approved.

Portland Parks & Recreation Urban Forestry will plant trees in late 2020 through early 2021. We are committed to bringing trees to neighborhoods that need them most!
