Dogs with the perpetual wiggles can work them out at the Denny Park Off-Leash Area in downtown Seattle. Located on the northern edge of the central business district, this dog park is the pawfect spot for you and your pooch to spend your lunch break!
You and Fido will find the .105-acre off-leash area in the north central sector of Denny Park, the city’s oldest park. Here, canines of all shapes and sizes mingle and play together as there is no separate section for small pups. Double gates at the entrance and a 4-foot-tall fence enclose the area for everyone’s safety, though the fence may not be high enough to keep some dogs from jumping over it. If your pooch is a talented escape artist, then they may need additional supervision.
Fortunately, the size of the park makes it easy for pet parents to keep an eye on their furry charges. And while there are no fancy amenities, there is adequate space for the dogs to run around on a granolithic gravel surface. Shade trees, a waste bag dispenser, and benches for the humans are available at this wheelchair accessible site as well.
As with any dog park, pet parents are expected to be in control and clean up after their furchildren. Additionally, dogs must be at least four months old, licensed, and vaccinated before visiting the off-leash area. Outside the off-leash area, the rest of Denny Park is also dog-friendly, so you can take your pup for a leashed stroll if they still have energy to burn. Enjoy a walk on the paved pathways planted with flowers and trees including rhododendrons, azaleas, maples, and pines before heading back to the office.
With its convenient location and lush landscape, the Denny Park Off-Leash Area is a puptastic hangout for Seattle’s four-legged urbanites!If Fido needs to learn some dog park petiquette, consider booking an in-home dog training session with Wag! before you visit.
