Yesterday KING 5’s New Day had a nice segment with Ellen Escarcega from Citizens for Off-Leash Areas (COLA) regarding some of the lesser known dog parks in Seattle.
I’ve only been to Woodland in Greenlake and Magnolia Manor. Woodland is located in stand of old trees and has some good open areas for ball throwing. Magnolia Manor is in the middle of a neighborhood and is one of Seattle’s tinier off-leash dog parks.
I hope to visit the other 3 off-leash dog parks soon, especially Dr. Jose Rizal, which has spectacular views of downtown and Puget Sound.
And in case you didn’t know, Seattle Parks and Recreation will soon release a draft of its OLA Strategic Plan which will identify a long term plan for the City’s existing off-leash areas, as well as for maintenance, acquisition, and expansion of OLA projects.
Seattle Parks will take public comments on the draft of the OLA Strategic Plan when it is released. I’ll be sure to post it when it comes out.
