Silverdale, Washington has become popular over the years, thanks to its scenic appearance, with oceanside views of the Dyes Inlet and fun camping opportunities in the forested areas on the outskirts of town. These features make it an excellent choice for you and your canine fur-end to get out and enjoy all the dog-friendly activities.
Right in the heart of Silverdale is the Silverdale Dog Park, a 2-acre dog park that has separate fenced-in areas for large and small dogs. The terrain is hilly, with a mixture of grass and sand, and is surrounded by trees and bushes which make for great privacy. The park provides great socialization and room for exercise, with water, clean-up stations and trash bins available.
A top trip destination in this town is the Clear Creek Trail, a 3.7 mile trail that starts north and follows south along the Clear Creek to the Dyers Inlet. The trail welcomes all leashed dogs, and is a moderate level path, offering beautiful views of nature at its finest. There are also picnic areas, benches, and water fountains stationed along the trail.
Silverdale is home to many dogs and their owners, and with five veterinarians, and outdoor adventures, its no wonder why so many call it home!
The Marine Drive neighborhood is about 8 miles from Silverdale, in the town of Bremerton. The drive there is worth it alone, with gorgeous views of the sparkling water of the Inlet. Along the shore also lies the N.A.D. Marine Park, a 27.5-acre park that's mostly undeveloped. The park has 1.2 miles of walking trails, and 1,430 ft of shoreline. Dogs are welcome throughout the park, and are even allowed on the beach and in the water. Dogs must remain on a leash, but can enjoy the forested walks to sunny beach play. The park has trash bins and two picnic areas. If you're staying in town, head over to the Baymont Inn and Suites, a dog-friendly hotel that allows dogs up 50 lbs with a small fee.
