Visit an off-leash dog park

7400 Sand Point Way NE

With some 485 parks in and around the city, it shouldn’t be too hard for Fido to get a good run out. Out of the total number, 14 parks feature a dog-friendly off-leash area, with another 10 park in the surrounding area. This is a welcoming change from the City’s policy on beaches and athletic fields where dogs have to be kept on a leash at all times. Although these off-leash areas can be found all over the city, Magnuson Park is one of the most popular dog-friendly parks. The park covers 8.6 acres, there is a fence around it, and is the only off-leash area within city limits with access to water, i.e. the freshwater shoreline of Lake Washington.
