Genesee Park and Playfield Off-Leash Area
Located in Southeast Seattle just south of the Stan Sayres Hydroplane Pits and just west of Seward Park on Lake Washington, the Genesee off-leash area is 2.7 acres and is completely fenced with two double-gated entrances. It is easy to keep an eye on dogs as the area is relatively flat and secure. The center 2 acres of the off-leash area is covered in gravel, which makes it mud-free in the winter. The park also has a doggie drinking fountain.
