Dog Days of Summer in Seattle

Owning a dog is not only good for companionship, they also can help you stay fit and active. Seattle is notorious for being dog-friendly and we have the restaurants, hotels and wine tasting events to prove it.

During the gorgeous summer months that we enjoy in Seattle, the long list of off-leash dog parks can give you and your dog a fun, safe place to enjoy the sun. Some parks are bigger than others and some also have trails for maximizing exercise opportunities for you and your dog.

We have assembled a short list of some of the most popular dog parks in Seattle, detailing amenities and locations, to you can discover new places to roam with your furry friends.

Magnuson Park

With nearly 9 acres of level play area and trails, this park also features a fully fenced off-leash dog area, a separate play area for small and shy dogs, and has beach access to Lake Washington.

Magnolia Manor Park

A much smaller park when compared to Magnuson – this park is still a very popular doggie destination in the Magnolia neighborhood.

Golden Gardens Park

One of Seattle’s most beautiful waterfront parks, this Ballard treasure also offers one acre of land dedicated as an off-leash area. Once your pooch is tired from cavorting with other dogs – leash him back up and enjoy a fire on the beach.

Regrade Park

A small but safe oasis in the heart of Belltown, Regrade Park offers Urban Pups a place to get off their leash and move around. Double fencing provides extra safety precautions in the high traffic area.

Woodland Park

It’s not the largest off-leash park but with small hills and trees interspersed, it is fun for a quick romp. Woodland Park itself is also great for long walks on a leash.

Blue Dog Pond Park

Located in Southeast Seattle, Blue Dog Pond is the place where wagging tails and art meet. Art installations are located throughout the park – including a big blue dog sculpture – while the off-leash area has lot of grassy slopes for fun play.
