  • The crowded is very nice. There is a space for dogs to play without a neck line, so it seems like a good place for the dog.

  • This is one of my favorite dog parks! It's huge, with one of the only off leash water access points in Seattle. (We gotta protect the seals) There's a long, wide walking trail that dumps into a giant open space where the dogs run around together. There is a off shoot trail of you don't want to go to the wide spot. There are multiple places to leave the off leash area and continue walking along the trails of the park (on leash). You can park by the wide open space or in the center of the park and will have to walk on leash along the water to get to the dog area.
  • I absolutely love the off-leash part of Magnuson Park. I take my dog here at least once a week, nearly daily during the summer. There is a waterfront area where you dog can social with other dogs and go for a swim. There is a bucket of 'free dog toys' there as well, but is frequently empty, unfortunately. If you exit the waterfront you get a long stretch of gravel paths to walk in, with a small alcove in the middle for playing and socializing. Back near the parking lots there is a large open area to let you dog roam, run, or play. There's even a spot to shower your dog off before heading back to your car.
