Visitors to this favorite doggy play space do lament that the ground in the play areas becomes very muddy during inclement weather. However, there is a pavilion on-site which offers protection from the rain. Benches and picnic tables are available on site in shaded areas. Here, owners can relax and enjoy watching their dogs at play or even share a snack or light lunch. Bathrooms for public use are also located near to the park.
Complimentary poop bags are available on the premises. Owners are asked to help preserve the cleanliness of the park by picking up and properly disposing of all canine waste promptly. Trash receptacles are scattered throughout the premises. Access to this public dog facility is free of charge. For those seeking an afternoon of tranquil reflection, area trails offer breathtaking views of the nearby Olympic Mountains. There is also a lengthy set of stairs which lead to the beach. It is important to note that Seattle by-laws prohibit dogs from access to shorelines and beach areas.
Though there are no specific rules governing park use, it is highly recommended that all dogs be current on vaccinations including rabies. It is also advisable that all dogs bear the appropriate required state license tag on their collars. This play space is a designated off-leash zone. However, owners are asked to carry a lead with them at all times in case of an emergency. For a great afternoon for Fido and the whole family, consider a trip to Golden Gardens Dog Park!
