About 36 miles northeast of Seattle, you’ll find the quiet town of West Lake Stevens. Though much of this town was annexed by the neighboring city of Lake Stevens several years ago to create one large community around the area’s namesake lake, West Lake Stevens still has its own identity. Residents enjoy plenty of shops, restaurants and amenities that make life comfortable in this small town.
For dogs and their owners, Willard Wyatt Park is the gem of the West Lake Stevens area, and a pawsome place to visit. On the shores of Lake Stevens, this park has epic views of the Cascade Mountains that you can enjoy while you relax on the beach or lawn. There is a dock with a gazeebo where you can fish, and a boat ramp. A designated swimming area can be found on the northeast end of the park, plus picnic tables and restrooms. There is a small fee to get into the park. Dogs are welcome as long as they’re leashed and they are cleaned up after.
If your pooch needs medical attention, there are four veterinary clinics just a three-mile drive to the east side of the lake, in Lake Stevens.
Whether you and Fido are just in the West Lake Stevens area for a day or you’re a local, you’re sure to have a puptacular time!
