Portland Dog Bowl

Found the spot where the dog bowl was installed. There is now a brass plate where the bowl used to be. Not sure if the bowl was removed for winter and will return in nicer weather.

Portland Dog Bowl

As of Feb. 20, 2023, the dog bowl was gone. Maybe it's out getting cleaned or something.

[Kevin, 02/20/2023]

A small dog bowl in a park can be a difficult thing to spot. For the sake of Portland's dogs, let's hope it's still there.

Not worth going out of the way for, but it's a nice bubbling fountain for those with dogs in the park.

It is as described. A real-sized dog bowl with a small gurgling water fountain in it.
