Sammamish, WA is certainly in an excellent spot. Thirty three minutes from Seattle and neighbor to the tech hub of Redmond, this small, family-friendly town is completely surrounded by some of the most fantastic scenery that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Sammamish has its roots in three resort towns that were amalgamated, and it’s easy to see why tourists flocked to the area. The town is bordered by Lake Sammamish to the west and Sonalquine Valley in the east, and you and your pooch are sure to have a pawsitively excellent time exploring the many fur-friendly trails in the area!
In 2012, Sammamish was voted America’s friendliest town, and that warm welcome definitely extends to your canine companion! The town has its own dedicated dog park, and there are three veterinary clinics in the area to take good care of your buddy, with emergency out-of hours services available a short drive away in nearby Bellvue. For doggy dining, check out MOD Pizza on NE 8th Street. This Sammamish staple serves up delicious slices made from the freshest ingredients, and your pup is welcome to chow down at an outdoor table.
Make no bones about it, your pup will adore the Beaver Lake Dog Park in South Sammamish! The park is a little hard to find -- it’s at the end of the trail next to the baseball fields, but it’s well worth taking the time to sniff it out. There’s plenty of space to run and play catch in this wide, open area, and there’s a little woodland on the edge for your pooch to explore. Water and bags are provided, and owners are sure to appreciate the chipped bark surface, which stops the area getting muddy in the Pacific Northwest weather!
