This off-leash area is located just south of downtown on the north end of Beacon Hill. It is currently 4 acres and offers spectacular views of Puget Sound looking west and to the Seattle Downtown skyline looking north. The park was renovated after the Department of Transportation constructed a bicycle path connecting to the Mountains to Sound Greenway. There is water available for dogs to drink. The fenced areas is accessed from a long set of stairs at the north end of the Park. It is ADA accessible from the bicycle trail. A trail runs through the middle of the off-leash area which is compacted gravel and follows rolling contours.
