Pets policy: To protect plants, wildlife and people, Metro does not allow pets at regional parks and natural areas. Pets can damage habitat and threaten wildlife the region has worked to protect. In natural areas where dogs are not allowed, people see more wildlife and get closer to it. Seeing-eye dogs or other service animals are allowed. Please bring cleanup materials. http://www.oregonmetro.gov/parks/pets-policy
