Ace of Hearts Rotary Dog Park is a public, off-leash dog park located in Anacortes, Washington. This hidden gem is popular with the community because of its size, cleanliness, and the various amenities provided within the park’s grounds.
The off-leash area is 1.5 acres in size and it is divided into two fenced-in areas, one for small dog breeds and the other for the larger hounds. The park is well-maintained and offers enough space for dogs of all ages and sizes to explore and exercise. There is a water faucet and a hose, meaning you can clean your dog up a bit after a day of fun in the park. Since there is a gazebo with picnic benches in the dog park, pet parents can comfortably bring their dogs for some off-leash exercise even on the rainy days or take advantage of the shade when it’s hot and sunny. There are kiddie pools by the running water too so that canines can cool off on the warmer days as well.
The park’s terrain is varied, consisting of open space and gentle slopes covered by a mixture of grass and bark so it rarely gets muddy. Trash cans and free dog waste bag dispensers are conveniently located throughout the park, so please make sure to tidy up after your dog and keep this park clean. There are tons of toys and some structures for dogs to explore and hop on. To top it all off, there are bathrooms nearby, a variety of trails you can take your leashed dog on, baseball courts, and a creek.
Despite its popularity, parking isn’t usually a problem and it is conveniently located directly next to the dog park. The regulars are accommodating, friendly, and have well-behaved dogs. This all-around wonderful park is a great place to take your canine buddy for some off-leash exercise and canine socialization.
