IMPORTANT NEW UPDATE: The Parks Department has released its DRAFT MASTER PLAN for what do about dog off-leash areas AND IT IS EVEN WORSE THAN EXPECTED. They plan to do little more than continue the same failed policy of the last 15 years, providing occasional tiny fenced gravel potty areas and NO NEW BEACHES. Oh and increase ticketing and raise fines! They are ignoring the results of the $104,000 study, including a survey, focus groups, and the nationwide research about how other cities’ manage their dogs. We can do better for the dog owners of Seattle, and their canine companions!
We need YOU to change the direction they are taking! If you feel strongly click here to email Seattle City Officials directly about your support of MORE & BETTER OFF-LEASH AREAS in Seattle! (Note: WINDOWS 10 USERS: we hear the button does not work for you, but you can use the template of our email here)
After you’ve done that, please add a small donation to our cause. COLA has worked tirelessly for the past 20 years to advocate for every dog park Seattle has, not to mention managing and maintaining them in an all-volunteer effort. We need your support! Also, if you have a dog park you’d like to suggest in Seattle city limits, submit it here.
Seattle City Officials are working on a Strategic Plan for People, Dogs, and Parks that will definitely impact Seattle dog parks. PLEASE JOIN OUR LIST BELOW TO MAKE SURE TO STAY UP TO DATE!
