North Beach Park is the ideal outdoor escape in northwest Seattle. If you're looking for a quiet place to take your pooch for a walk, then this is a furrific option. Don’t be fooled by the name, there’s no sand or waves. Instead, your furry BFF will be treated to a walk through lush Pacific Northwest vegetation.
Although the North Beach Park is small in size, it provides a beautiful environment where dogs can run, sniff and explore the woods. When visiting, make sure you wear the right shoes, preferable ones that can get dirty. The shrubs and trees are often overgrown and the trail is typically muddy. If you’re traveling by car, it’s a good idea to have a towel on hand to wipe your pup’s paws before they get in. The good news is this place is chilly and refreshing, especially if you're walking Fido on a hot summer day.
What makes this park the top pick for many dog owners is its proximity to their houses. Since it’s situated in the middle of a neighborhood, North Beach Park serves as a convenient urban oasis that’s just a just a bone’s throw away from home. Unfurtunately, there are no benches or bathrooms in this park. There are also no waste bags, so be sure to bring a few along. Do your part to keep the park smelling fresh; pick up whatever your dog puts down. And don’t forget to bring some water; your doggo will need a long drink after their workout.
Whether you're a local or are just visiting the area, make sure to check out North Beach Park. You and your furry companion will love this place. After all, what's better than spending a peaceful afternoon hiking through the woods with your favorite four legged friend?
