About Hondo Dog Park

Image of the Hondo Dog Park #2Hillsboro's first ever off-leash dog park opened on September 17, 2007. 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.
