The Dr. Jose Rizal Dog Park is a four-acre section of the Dr. Jose Rizal Park in Seattle, Washington. Parking is available on the street which runs adjacent to the dog park. From there it is just a short walk to the entrance. This dog park is comprised of three different parts. The first is a small area which is completely enclosed. To get to the larger area it is necessary to follow a footpath with steps. Some pet owners with mobility problems or those who have older dogs may find access to the larger area difficult to negotiate.
The larger area of this dog park is a spacious grassy field interspersed with many mature trees and a walking trail running through its center. There is also another smaller completely fenced in area full of trees next to it. There is no specific area sectioned off for small dogs. While all parts of the dog park's off-leash areas are fully enclosed with chain-link fencing and it is safe for dogs to roam, owners using the facility might want to consider that some parts are quite isolated and it is probably better to go accompanied.
All dogs using the facility must be suitably vaccinated and licensed with the Seattle local authorities. Owners should also be aware that this park has the aspect of natural countryside and so thorny plants will be encountered in some places. There is only one water spigot, which is located near the entrance.
It is a large dog park and owners should carry their own supply of bottled water and drinking bowl for their dog, especially during hot weather. Owners are responsible for supplying their own poop bags and must collect all waste produced by their pets. Used poop bags should be deposited in the container provided which is located by the dog park gates. Used poop bags should not be left in any other location in the park.
