It would be nice to have an iPhone app that shows the nearest location for walking a dog. Enter an address and it will show a map of all the parks, trails and other public areas where I can take a dog. Nice if it would show little icons on a Google Map indicating leash and no leash areas, popularity (some dog areas are really popular with lots of other dogs), and maybe a ball or frisbee icon if there is space for playing catch.

This is similar to the City's "Find a Park" app, it lets you select amenities like "Dog Off Leash Area" in addition to other things. http://www.portlandonline.com/parks/finder/ Though I could see a dog specific branded app being popular. It occurred to me that the data behind find a park is not available publicly, we can work on that.
