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