Hillsboro's first ever off-leash dog park, opened on September 17, 2007. It is open from dawn to dusk every day, except for Mondays and Thursdays when it is open from noon to dusk due to mowing and maintenance. The park is named in honor of Hillsboro Police K9 Dog Officer "Hondo," who lost his life in the line of duty in 1997. He is the only Hillsboro Police K9 to die in the line of duty. The park features a large mixed-size dog play area, a small/timid dog area and a special winter use area that can be enjoyed year-round. The design of the park is especially dog friendly with open grassy areas, trees for shade, dog drinking water stations, and two defunct fire hydrants painted and installed by volunteers.
Dog Park Area Status — Open
The winter area is open year-round (until 9 pm).
Other areas will close periodically during cold/wet time periods to protect the grass and maintain an enjoyable and safe dog park. Water may not be on seasonally.
