Happy Valley, Oregon


Private Dog Park on 1+ Acres near Mt. Scott Creek The Spot: We are a private park located less than ten minutes from the Clackamas Town Center. A fully fenced (1 acre) field and hills with Mt Scott Creek winding through the lower field (two ends of the creek aren't fenced). The creek water runs all year; the water level drops in the summer, but there are spots where canines can totally immerse themselves to cool down on blistering hot days. The field's surface is mowed natural grass. The park features flat fields as well as hill terrains, making it ideal for energetic dog owners to chase and catch frisbees with their canine companions. Sniffin' Hours: Monday through Sunday: 8 am to 7 pm (Spring & Summer) 8 am to 4pm (Autumn & Winter) The sniffing area is isolated from our front yard by a 6-foot fence and gate (no public access). Our two 5-year-old Doberman, lab, and mastiff mixes will be indoor for the duration of your visit. Thank you for Sniffin' at our Spot! Daniel & family


100% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.


The thick slope areas have some black berries creeping about. The slopes are steep with unmarked pathways, the lower and higher fields are flat but some areas are uneven with rocks and terrains, section of the walking path by the creek near home foothill are narrow, so hiker beware and hiking shoes are recommended. The stairs going to the park may be quite steep leading to a bridge crossing the creek with rope railing, see photos for more details.

    Great communication from host and the property is very lovely. Our two active pups had a blast exploring by the creek and running up and down the hilly trail. We'll be back!

  • Stephanie B., Nov 11, 2023

    My golden retriever and her buddy loved it. And the humans thought it ws pretty nice too! The hilly trails, stream with easy access and a bridge, lots of trees-so much to sniff and experience. Host Daniel super easy to work with.

  • Angie B., Oct 12, 2023

    Oh my gosh my dog LOVED this Sniffspot. She typically is ready to leave after 10 minutes but this one she stayed the full hour!! She loved the creek most of all and the fact that it wasn't just a boring flat piece of grass. This is the first sniffspot that she independently wandered around and seemed totally calm and happy. Thank you so much!! Your spot gave us both so much joy!

  • Melanya H., Oct 10, 2023

    Today we brought our pup and her friend, and the two pups had way more than twice the fun as one pup would have. The safe and clean enclosed grounds with the hill and the creek(!) were a perfect spot for these two four month olds to get in some real dog play. Fantastic!

  • Janet F., Oct 9, 2023

    A slice of heaven!! Private, wooded, pathways, sitting groups for people, hillsides to charge up and a creek running through for splashing and playing. This lovely sylvan glade felt like my dogs were transported to an elven forest. Fantasic!

There's something endearing about the dog's smile when they're having fun and exploring the surroundings sniffing and frolicking, that's priceless to us. Hello! I'm Daniel, an engineer by profession. My wife and I have lived on this 1.32 acre property in Happy Valley since 1998 and look forward to sharing our Spots with you and your furry best friends!
